PSA Peugeot Citroen: Slovak staff only

CARMAKER PSA Peugeot Citroen in Trnava, which already has 1,200 employees, will only hire Slovak citizens, PSA Peugeot Citroen's recruitment manager Daniela Záhorská told the SITA news agency.

"The plant will employ 3,500 people at full capacity. We pledged to reach this figure in a memorandum with the Slovak government and we can only employ Slovak citizens since we received state support for the creation of the jobs," she said.

She also said that the recruitment at PSA is continuing and the plant should employ 1,400 people by the end of this year.

The new car plant's capacity will be 300,000 cars per year. The building of the plant and the launching of the operation will cost the French carmaker €700 million.
