Daimler Mercedes-Benz to Create More Than 10,000 New Jobs in 2011


It’s not often you hear about new jobs being advertised these days, especially in the auto industry, but Daimler AG is doing just that.

The parent company for Mercedes-Benz, Smart and several others plans to recruit more than 10,000 new people worldwide during 2011, around 4,000 in Germany alone. It says that approximately 6,700 skilled workers and 700 graduates will be recruited from all over the world as it plans a big drive to invest in its future, particularly in the areas of staffing as well as skills, research and development.

In an official statement to the press, Daimler’s Director of Labor Relations and Human Resources Management Board member Wilfried Porth, declared that the company can “only deliver top performance with the help of a first-class workforce.” He went on to say that “our human resources policy stands on two pillars: the continuous encouragement and support of young talent along with the recruitment of highly qualified skilled workers and graduates with work experience.”

Porth also stated the fact that Daimler is growing its operations in many parts of the world is another reason for this latest recruitment drive; among other things, the company plans to expand existing production facilities in Hungary, India and Mexico as well as those that serve its commercial vehicle division in North America.

It’s also bumping up training programs – around 600 students in its CAReer training program in Germany will also receive jobs upon graduation, along with a further 200 students currently enrolled in the Duale Hochschule.
