MTC offers lifeline to Britishvolt employeesThe Manufacturing Technology Centre

Coventry-based Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) is offering a lifeline to redundant employees of the collapsed battery manufacturer Britishvolt.

The MTC is set to hold an open day tomorrow (25 January) from 11am to 3pm at its headquarters in Ansty Park, Coventry, to give Britishvolt employees the chance to learn about the company and its ‘cutting-edge’ facilities, meet managers and explore career opportunities available to them. Any Britishvolt employees interested in attending should contact for more information.

The company has already taken on three Britishvolt apprentices, allowing them to transfer their employment and training, and complete their apprenticeships at the centre.

Vicki Sanderson, MTC chief people officer, said the company are keen to support the UK manufacturing community: “Following the sad news that Britishvolt has fallen into administration, it is offering Britishvolt staff who have been made redundant a wide range of manufacturing, engineering and supporting roles within the organisation.

“The UK has long suffered from a shortage of people with the right engineering and associated skills to take the country’s manufacturing industry into the future, so it is important that these skills are not lost to other sectors. The MTC, as a proud supporter of UK manufacturing and a progressive employer, has more than 50 roles available in the West Midlands and is offering Britishvolt employees the chance to take these opportunities.”

More than 300 jobs were lost when Britishvolt collapsed into administration last week. The roles available include research engineers, laser and metrology engineers, mechanical and electrical team leaders, technology managers, business transformation advisors, manufacturing engineers, project managers and engineering trainers, as well as maintenance, finance and health and safety roles.

The business aims to provide a competitive environment to bridge the gap between university-based R&D of innovative manufacturing solutions, in line with the Government’s manufacturing strategy, and is part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, supported by Innovate UK.

Established to prove innovative manufacturing processes and technologies in an agile environment in partnership with industry, academia and other institutions, the MTC houses some of the most advanced manufacturing equipment in the world, creating a high quality environment for the development and demonstration of new technologies on an industrial scale. This provides a unique opportunity for manufacturers to develop new and innovative processes and technologies.
