by Kay Murchie

German carmaker, Volkswagen (VW), has today announced it will increase headcount by around 50,000 in the medium-term due to considerably high sales growth in numerous markets.

VW’s Personnel Director, Horst Neumann, told the German newspaper, Handelsblatt: “We have around 400,000 workers around the world today. With pursued growth in many markets, we could reach a staff of 450,000 in the medium term.”

VW, which is the biggest European carmaker, said the jobs will be created worldwide, with 5,000-6,000 jobs in Germany by 2015.

German car manufacturers have been battling to meet fresh demand around the globe - in particular, China.
