Nissan Juke production creates 50 new UK jobs

As a key investment in Nissan's Sunderland plant kick-starts production of the new Juke, the manufacturer has announced the creation of 50 new jobs.

£20 million has been put into the facility, which is also building the Qashqai, the Note and the fully-electric LEAF. In total the investments in Nissan's UK production plants over the years total £800 million, supporting 38,000 automotive industry roles. The new positions available at the plant will include mechanical and electrical supervisors and maintenance technicians.

Since 2010, over 540,000 Juke models have rolled off the production line in the UK – and the factory as a whole builds half a million Nissan cars every year. Nissan is investing heavily in its future manufacturing here, particularly in the North East of England. New equipment at the factory will produce the enhanced design and technology aspects of the Juke, as well as the advanced engine range.

Updates and revisions to the Juke include a revised front face, next-generation NissanConnect and a brand new sound system. Less visible – yet no less effective – additions to the vehicle encompass more efficient engines and the comprehensive Nissan Safety Shield protection package.
