Filtronic plotting new engineer and apprenticeship roles at NETPark base

A TECHNOLOGY company will press on to secure its next generation after public safety work provided a financial lift.

Filtronic is firming up plans to recruit junior engineers and apprentices at a County Durham base.

The business operates its broadband division from a site on Sedgefield’s NetPark, which is known for developing an e-band transceiver capable of increasing data limits across phone networks.

The base employs in excess of 50 staff and Rob Smith, chief executive, has confirmed the company hopes to add to the number with young starters after a spike in work left annual revenues and profits primed to go beyond market expectations.

He said: “We have got a pipeline of products and I am very happy with the progress to date, but we need to do more.

“We have a plan, we are working on it and are looking at junior engineers and apprentices.

“We are doing the small things – they may seem dull and boring – but they are the things that make the difference.”
