Five carmakers want to hire people in Slovakia

All three carmakers located in Slovakia - Volkswagen, PSA Peugeot Citroen, and Kia Motors - in May began new recruitment drives, and by the end of this year want to hire 2,500 people.

However, even carmakers situated in Hungary, such as Suzuki in Esztergom and Audi in Gyor, are interested in hiring in Slovakia.

"We have a cooperation with Suzuki going back several years where about 1,200 local people work with us. Due to high turnover, we are constantly recruiting. Whenever we find a suitable man we send him directly to the plant for a job interview," Csila Onódiová, director of the labour office in Nové Zámky, told the Pravda daily. Audi also regularly hires Slovak people.

According to Peter Ceľuch, a member of the board at personnel agency MS-Atlas Slovakia, people from Eastern Slovakia are generally unwilling to travel for work.

"For example, in Rimavská Sobota there are many people aged between 20 and 40 who don't even want to hear [about travelling for work], because they are content with their social benefits and seasonal earnings," he said.
