HIROSHIMA, Japan—Mazda Motor Corporation has announced its graduate recruitment plan for fiscal year (FY) 2012. Mazda will offer 160 engineering and 25 office positions to prospective employees in Japan.
Takeshi Fujiga, general manager of Mazda's Human Resources Division, said, "Mazda will offer 50 more engineering-related positions and the same number of office positions as we did last year, despite the continuing challenges in the business environment. Our new recruits will drive forward the comprehensive enhancement of our environmental and safety technologies, including SKYACTIV technologies, and expand the innovation in our planning and production processes, which we call Monotsukuri Innovation. With our systematic and ongoing recruitment program, we aim to employ the right kind of people to meet our future internal requirements. Mazda is always looking for ambitious individuals who are proactive and determined, and who dare to take on tough challenges with youthful vigor."
In previous years, Mazda has not differentiated between new and prior graduates, focusing instead on securing the best talent. However, in accordance with a recent government proposal, from FY2012 Mazda will target new graduates who have completed their education within the last three years.
