Knorr-Bremse Rail Systems is creating more than 20 jobs at its works in Melksham and further posts are in the pipeline.

There are 360 people working in Melksham and the firm says its workforce continues to grow as the company experiences increased demand here and abroad for its systems and services.

In addition to the Melksham site Knorr-Bremse Rail Group operates three other major facilities around the UK; at Burton-upon-Trent, at Springburn near Glasgow and at Wolverton near Milton Keynes.

In a statement the firm said: "With growing levels of business at all of these locations, including Melksham and more expansion on the horizon, the recruitment partners of Knorr-Bremse in the UK, C&D Group, based in Swindon, are currently recruiting more than twenty permanent vacancies for the Melksham site alone. More will follow in the very near future."

C&D is now recruiting for a board range of skills for Knorr-Bremse including a management accountant, project manager, innovation manager as well as buyers, quality engineers, systems engineers, electronic engineers and a variety of engineering vacancies.

Georgie Reeves, HR business partner at Knorr-Bremse, said: "We are delighted that our continued business success has led to the need for us to recruit new expertise into our teams and we see them as crucial to our plans for further growth.”

Karen Davison, managing director of C&D Group, said: "We have seen an encouraging level of both temporary and contract vacancies in the early part of 2014 but it is really encouraging news for the British economy to see multiple permanent opportunities following closely behind, such as those that we are now recruiting for Knorr-Bremse."

More good local economic news. This is the industrial sector - high tech maufacturing, high added value, export oriented - that is the way forward. Proper work, proper jobs; unlike some of the pseudo jobs that are currently advertised.- zero hours, below the living wage.
