Holyhead boat-builders may need graduate engineers

Graduate vacancies may be opening at a Holyhead boat manufacturing plant as it has announced it will be creating 25 extra jobs over the next year and a half.

Holyhead Marine Services made the announcement yesterday (February 17th) that it was going to increase its workforce after the north Wales company received new contracts from the energy and defence industries, reports the BBC.

The company has recently received a new order for patrol boats from the Ministry of Defence.

Nick York, managing director of Holyhead Marine Services, told the news provider that a linked company has recently undergone expansion and his company will be growing alongside it.

"The expansion of our sister company Turbine Transfers into the wind turbine industry means we'll be building a new ship for them and so need more space," he said.

He added that the company will be looking for "skilled workers such as aluminium fabricators, marine engineers, electricians and shipwrights", which suggests there may be roles for graduate engineers.
