Bridgestone launches hiring campaign

As part of an investment plan, Bridgestone is to hire more than 30 new engineers from a range of backgrounds, at its European Technical Centre

by Rachel Evans

 

Bridgestone Europe has announced plans to hire multiple engineers in the coming months at its European Technical Centre (TCE) near Rome in Italy. It will hire somewhere between 30-50 experts before 2016. This is part of an investment plan to expand Bridgestone’s business in Europe, which also includes investments in manufacturing and logistics.

The company is targeting engineers with a range of different experience levels, from recent graduates to experienced individuals. Their role will involve designing and developing innovative products which will improve tire performance on all types of road and in all types of climate.

“One of the priority issues in our corporate policy is to develop human resources capable of global management also in the R&D domain. This calls for a commitment to keep investing in talented engineers and scientists that can make the difference and help us to constantly stay ahead of the curve of the industry regarding the development of leading-edge technologies and systems to best support our business operations,” said Bridgestone Europe CEO, Franco Annunziato.

Bridgestone is encouraging would-be candidates for the engineering posts to take part in an online chat on 22 October with various leaders to discover more about the company, what it stands for and the opportunities on offer at TCE. This is the first of a series of three online information events – for more information click here. The site has been especially created for the new recruitment campaign. It will gather all the information that candidates need before applying for a post.

Dr Koji Takagi, MD at Bridgestone TCE, said, “TCE is a great place to work and to develop your career at the heart of Bridgestone’s innovation community. This is where our top-notch engineers and technicians develop key technologies for the future. Candidates will have the opportunity to join a passionate and highly qualified international team - TCE can be a launch-pad for a globe-trotting career with Bridgestone.”

TCE plays a vital role in materials research, tire design, prototype development and all forms of testing. Near TCE, in Aprilla, is Bridgestone’s state-of-the-art European proving ground where engineers analyze and assess breakthrough technology in real world conditions.
