Vestas to begin Isle of Wight recruitment drive

Wind turbine manufacturer Vestas is set to give people the chance to work on the Isle of Wight as it launches a recruitment drive on the island.

A research and development (R&D) centre is to be expanded and it is thought that around 100 people will be needed to fill the roles at the new facility.

Rob Sauven of Vestas Technology R&D, speaking at an event hosted by trade association RenewableUK, stated that while 200 people are already employed on the Isle of Wight by the company, this number will soon grow.

Klaus Steen Mortensen, president of Vestas Northern Europe, told Business Green that the expansion shows how the firm is committed to renewable energy in the UK.

"We are currently expanding in the UK and adding new people on an almost daily basis," he said.

Last month, Vestas revealed that it is opening a new office in Romania in order to take advantage of a renewable energy boom in eastern Europe.
