Recruitment at UKBICRecruitment is under way for a wide range of positions at the new £80 million UK Battery Industrialisation Centre (UKBIC), which will be located in Coventry as part of the Government’s Faraday Battery Challenge (www.ukbic.co.uk).

A nation-wide competition, led by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) and supported by Innovate UK, was won by a joint bid from WMG (at the University of Warwick), Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership and Coventry City Council.

The UKBIC, to be led by newly appointed managing director Jeff Pratt, will develop the processes to turn the UK into a global leader in the design, development and manufacture of batteries through collaborative R&D involving industry and academia.

The centre, which will open in 2020, will see the development of the next generation of battery systems, including battery chemistry, electrodes, cell design, module and pack processes technologies.

Recruitment for the first key technical positions has started, with vacancies for engineers and process technicians to be filled.

Mr Pratt said: “This a great opportunity to be involved from the start of our journey and play a significant role, working with industry to develop our future battery technology.

“We are keen to attract a diverse range of talent, so we are keen to talk not only to battery experts but also to those who have experience of process and production technologies in other sectors.”

This is the first phase of the technical recruitment process; there will be more technology positions advertised later in the year and through 2019.
