World’s leading can maker kicks-off local recruitment drive for its latest plant, opening Jan 2023 in Northamptonshire.

KETTERING, Tuesday 10th May 2022: As construction gains momentum at its new Northamptonshire plant, global can-making company Ball Corporation (‘Ball’) continues to pick up the pace with its innovative and inclusive recruitment drive.


The world’s leading manufacturer of infinitely recyclable aluminium drinks cans, whose new 56,000m² facility in Barton Seagrave near Kettering is scheduled to be completed next January, is now seeking to recruit a local workforce of more than 200.


More than 20 new recruits have already been appointed, and a jobs fair has been scheduled for later this month [May] to promote Ball’s wide range of career opportunities.


Carey Causey, President, Ball Beverage Packaging, EMEA said: “We are committed to building an inclusive workforce and are seeking people of all ages, from all backgrounds and regardless of education or experience. We will provide pre-employment training to enable candidates without prior manufacturing experience to apply and join.


“At Ball, we want to transform manufacturing to enable more people to access careers in a stable sector that is growing fast. We are building a sustainable, state-of-the-art facility and we will be providing long-term careers for local people who have passion, want to learn and who want to be part of something special.”


With accelerating demand for recyclable aluminium drinks cans in the UK and around the world, Ball is investing in this new Northamptonshire plant to meet the needs of its customers, the world’s leading drinks brands.


The new plant, located between Kettering and Barton Seagrave, is set to produce over one billion fully recyclable cans in its first year and will be Ball’s third can manufacturing plant in the UK and its 26th in the Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia (EMEA) region.

Ball will be promoting its vacancies at a May Jobs Fair, hosted by the Department for Work and Pensions, and set to take place at KCU, 51 Gold Street, Kettering NN16 8JB on Thursday, 19th May, 12.30pm to 3pm.
