Tata Electronics, which is part of the Tata Group, is preparing to hire in significant numbers for its manufacturing unit in Tamil Nadau. The Company that manufactures precision components, is looking at expanding its workforce in Krishnagiri district in preparation for launch of commercial operations. It intends to ensure that at least 80 per cent of the workforce is from Tamil Nadu itself.
As per media reports, the new hires will be for direct as well as indirect roles. The Company already has about 8,000 members in its workforce, of which about 5,500 are working out of Tamil Nadu itself.
The Company will collaborate with the State government for these recruitments so that talent from across districts can be tapped.
Collaborations have been planned with various institutes and colleges across Tamil Nadu to tap talent suitable for the emerging requirements of Tata Electronics.
Last month, there was news of Tata Electronics offering jobs to about 1,900 tribal women at its Tamil Nadu plant. The recruitment drive was conducted via a tie-up with the Ministry of Tribal Affairs. Over 2,600 women / girls had turned up for the recruitment drive. The selected women were sent to work as entry-level operators at the greenfield plant of the Company in Krishnagiri, after undergoing a training of about 12 days at the plant. As reported by Hindustan Times, these girls would receive Rs 15,000 as salary for a year along with other benefits. As they are already Class 12 pass, they will be allowed to pursue graduation.
