VinFast, a unit of Vietnam's biggest conglomerate Vingroup currently employs 6,000 people in total.
“New recruitments are for VinFast’s production expansion,” the company said in a Facebook post on its verified account announcing the hiring for its plant in Haiphong, Vietnam.
“New staff, including assembly workers, technicians, and engineers will start working from August and September.”
The Haiphong plant has capacity to produce 250,000 cars per year and VinFast has said it expects to upgrade that capacity to 600,000 by 2026.
In March, VinFast announced it would build a plant in North Carolina with an initial projected capacity of 150,000 EVs a year.
