The new UK Battery Industrialisation Centre (UKBIC) in Baginton will create 30 new jobs to support its first large customer project.

UKBIC, which was opened by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in July, currently employs over 80 engineers and backroom staff but needs to expand in order to fill orders for the new developers it is working with.

UKBIC is looking to fill senior manufacturing engineers, process engineers, senior control technicians and project coordinators roles.

The facility, which is open for use by organisations working on batteries for electric vehicles, rail, aerospace, industrial and domestic equipment and static energy storage, is a key part of the UK Government's Faraday Battery Challenge.

The challenge was created to fast track the commercialisation of cost-effective, high-performance, durable, safe, low-weight and recyclable batteries.

UKBIC HR director Damian Pearce said: "The end of the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030 has the potential to put jobs in the traditional UK automotive industry at risk.

"The prospect of joining an organisation that is at the cutting edge of the new green industrial revolution should resonate with a lot of people.

"There is no better time to switch to the battery sector."
