Honda to create 500 new jobs
SWINDON-based manufacturer Honda has announced it will create 500 new jobs.
The car giant, based in South Marston, will start the recruitment process in the New Year.
The news comes on the day that workers returned to work on a full-time basis.
More than 3,000 staff have been working reduced hours of three half-shifts per week since September after floods in Thailand affected the car manufacturer's supply of components.
The workforce stayed on full pay during this period and built up a balance of hours to owe the firm.
