Go North East saves National Holidays jobs
Go North East has saved five engineers’ jobs following the collapse of National Holidays.
Four mechanics and one fourth-year apprentice were all interviewed and offered positions at the Go-Ahead-owned company and have now joined the business’ workforce. Go North East employs over 250 engineers who look after an almost 700-strong fleet of buses and coaches.
Colin Barnes, Engineering Director at Go North East, said: “It’s very unfortunate to see companies in our industry collapse, so from the moment we heard the news we wanted to do everything we could to help save some jobs.
“We’ve acted quickly, interviewing for these roles and Adam, Simon, William, Zak and Ryan have all impressed us. We’ve offered them positions and we can’t wait to see them working with our award-winning team in the weeks, months and years ahead.”
