The official job announcement will be posted at www.usajobs.gov Monday morning and will be taken down Wednesday night, shipyard spokeswoman Mary Ann Mascianica said. It will list requirements and how to apply.
Starting pay is $15.11 an hour.
Mascianica said the new helpers will boost the shipyard’s workforce to more than 11,500.
Major projects are underway on the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis, ballistic missile submarine USS Kentucky and fast attack submarines USS Jimmy Carter and USS Connecticut.
Helpers work full time at the shipyard and can attend classes on their own time to get ahead.
About 85 percent of incoming apprentices have been helpers.
