Alstom offering 100 new jobs in Mátranovák

Manufacturing

Alstom is offering new long-term domestic job opportunities at its factory in Mátranovák (93 km northeast of Budapest), mainly for welders, locksmiths, and CNC operators, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

The company's Nógrád County site, which will offer 100 new positions by the end of the year, will double the previously planned headcount and will have a special program to help new employees settle in smoothly.

Each new recruit will be assigned an experienced colleague who, alongside the team leader or shift foreman, will personally supervise and support the new employee during the initial period. Although the workflow in the factory is industrial, there are several workstations that are not overburdening for women, people with disabilities or older people, according to the press release.

Alstom also supports the entry of workers living in the Mátranovák area and provides accommodation for them if necessary. Positions currently advertised by the company are available on the job search website profession.hu and in the Superinfo. 

"We are also applying technological innovations to education, and we will start using AVATAR, our proprietary welding simulator system, which uses virtual-reality tools to help you practice the best hand movements," says Gáspár Balázs, CEO of Alstom Transport Hungary Zrt.. "Our plans include further development of our training center, which already meets the requirements of the fourth industrial revolution. In addition to welder and machinist, we will also launch accredited training in other trades."

The nationally training center, which offers a wide range of skills, will train four master craftsmen who will be selected on the basis of interviews and examinations. In addition to manual dexterity, the main test for admission is whether the applicant has a flair for welding. Since its inception, the school has successfully graduated more than 300 technicians, who after three months of training continue their training at the factory, where experienced colleagues help them to develop professionally.
