Uralvagonzavod to hire thousands of workers at Nizhny Tagil facilities

On Thursday, Uralvagonzavod Scientific and Production Corp. announced plans to create between 5,000 and 14,000 new jobs at its Nizhny Tagil facilities by the year 2020.

The announcement followed a meeting between Managing Director Vladimir Roshchupkin, Russian Federation plenipotentiary representative Igor Kholmanskikh and members of Uralvagonzavod's corporate and production departments, Ural Business Consulting reports.

During the meeting, Roshchupkin admitted that lack of staff was a growing concern among Uralvagonzavod's Nizhniy Tagil leadership, and that the company would have to undertake massive recruiting efforts in order to remain competitive.

Prior to initiating a regional hiring campaign, Uralvagonzavod must first negotiate the labor regulations required of future employees within the Nizhniy Tagil industrial sector, according to Ural Business Consulting.
