Mazda has announced a new graduate recruitment plan for fiscal year ending March 2017 which will see it employ a total of 475 new workers.
Mazda will offer 185 engineering, 30 administrative and 260 manufacturing-related positions to prospective employees in Japan.
“Mazda is working hard to promote Brand Value Management with the aim of becoming a brand that enriches people’s lives and maintains a strong bond with our customers. This will be achieved by consistently exceeding customers’ expectations at every touch point,” said Takeshi Fujiga, Executive Officer in charge of Global Human Resources.
“We are looking for people who display a never-give-up attitude towards achieving objectives and making their dreams come true, and who are capable of consistently conducting themselves in good faith from the customer’s point of view.”
Mazda this month began production of the all-new Mazda MX-5 two-seater lightweight sports car (known as Mazda Roadster in Japan) at its Ujina Plant in Hiroshima.
The first models produced are destined for the Japanese market. Sales of the all-new MX-5 will begin in Japan around June this year and interested buyers can make an appointment for pre-sale discussions through a dedicated website from noon on Friday, March 20.
Following sales start in Japan, the MX-5 will be progressively rolled out to overseas markets.
