Boeing has started to recruit for a new 787 manufacturing facility that will eventually employ about 3,800 people and work toward the goal of producing a record 10 airplanes per month. The facility at Charleston, S.C., is set to open in 2011 with 1,000 workers. Boeing hopes it will help set a production rate of 10 aircraft per month, which the company says would be "the highest twin-aisle production rate in history." The company has won more than 860 orders for the 787 Dreamliner and expects the South Carolina plant to turn out completed jets by early 2012. Jobs at the new facility, which will perform final assembly, will include structural manufacturing, fastener installation and inspections. Positions do have minimum requirements and applications do have due dates coming up soon.

Applicants should have at least four years of experience working with large structural components, and a high school diploma (or equivalent) is required. Applications received prior to June 25 will be considered for interviews with Boeing this July, according to TheSunNews.com. New hires will undergo training set to last six weeks.

Aside from filling positions at the coming plant, Boeing is also seeking candidates for currently operational plants in North Charleston. Those put out aft- and mid-fuselage sections for the new airliner. Boeing is also assembling Dreamliners out of facilities in Everett, Wash.
