    Plenty of jobs going at Swindon anyone interested its a great place to work, you will learn the essence of team work & SPEED.

    Watching the production line at full steam, just showcases the fact Japanese have perfected the art of manufacturing cars. it is mind blowing.

    Very tempted to apply for the maintenance engineer vacancy, bit of a long commute though.

    Production lines are incredible, I used to work on high speed filling and packaging lines. But car production plants would be a dream.

    if you don't get any joy with the swindon factory there is always the honda institute? well worth a visit and no strangers to owners club meets! there is a regular Civic Type-R meet they allow down there.

    it is seriously jaw dropping! amazing how it all comes together to form a car from the massive rolls of steel at the begining and a car being driven on the test track

    Last time I visited a factory a great lump of aluminium went in one end came out the other with tracks and a 4.2 jaguar engine in it. I'll see if I've got a picture somewhere. A visit would be great.

    Guys. I got a reply from the factory. Unfortunately at this time they are unavailingly to facilitate a visit. They are preparing for the production of the new Civic and going through a lot of recruitment. They did say that they would keep my details on file and if they started again with visits they would let me know. I'll try again in a month or so.
