The past several weeks for jobs in Jacksonville
A business unit of GE Oil & Gas has been posting career opportunities the past several weeks for jobs in Jacksonville, and one refers to a new facility and another refers to a factory relocation from Illinois.
GE Oil & Gas Measurement & Control, based near Boston, posted an opening Aug. 29 for a “site lean leader” who “will be involved in long-term planning and contribute to the overall business strategy for a new facility.”
The postings reviewed since Aug. 15 do not specify a location within Jacksonville. Several refer to the manufacturing, engineering and design control-valve products. The Becker product line is included in some of the listings.
A posting for a mechanical engineering position specified the person would relocate within nine months to the Southeast from Elk Grove Village, Ill., which is near Chicago.
The communications manager for GE Oil & Gas did not elaborate about the job postings.
“GE Oil & Gas constantly reviews operations, organization structures and product and services in order to support our growth strategy and meet the needs of our customers. At this time, we have nothing to announce but let me know if you have any additional questions,” said Lindsey Benton, the communications manager for GE Oil & Gas in an email Wednesday.
Kristen Sell, a spokeswoman for Mayor Alvin Brown, said the best source of information will be the company.
The JAX Chamber declined comment.
