Porsche is creating 1,400 new jobs with Mission E
Mission E is taking Porsche into the future as an employer brand as well. The company will hire more than 1,400 new employees in the Stuttgart region to work on the development and production of the first all-electric sports car from Porsche. The company plans to recruit experts in the fields of digitalisation, e-mobility, smart mobility and vehicle connectivity. Porsche will also focus on recruiting production planners familiar with Factory 4.0 and digital production and will hire more than 100 IT specialists as well. In addition, the newly established company Porsche Digital GmbH will soon be offering 50 jobs to creative individuals in order to integrate the latest technologies into mobility solutions for the premium vehicle segment. Finally, Porsche will increase apprentice numbers from 150 to 220. Porsche offers challenging assignments and a modern working environment in order to attract the most talented individuals. Various programmes such as those for ensuring the compatibility of profession and family life are designed to further the company’s attractiveness as an employer.
Porsche AG has doubled its workforce since 2010. The sports car manufacturer employed 26,200 people at the end of June 2016. The company has embarked upon a course of consolidation this year. However, its planning measures also include further continual growth in workforce numbers. This development is being driven by the Mission E model, which will go into production in Zuffenhausen at the end of the decade. However, additional knowledge, as well as a certain number of employees who approach things in a novel way, are also needed for the digital transformation that affects products and services, customers and retail operations, the company and its processes and people and culture.
