Sunseeker looks set to recruit more than 250 extra workers this year

Poole-based boat builder Sunseeker looks set to recruit more than 250 extra workers this year. The expansion, which follows a glut of new boat orders taken at the London Boat Show, comes on top of 300 new jobs at the company in 2007.

“Our three-year order book is looking very strong,” said Peter Henness, the company’s finance director, “so it’s vital we grow our capabilities.” Most of the newcomers will work at the company’s facility at Osprey Quay in Portland.
