Rolls-Royce Motor Cars today announced the creation of more than 100 new jobs.
This announcement follows record sales over the last three years, significant expansion of the manufacturing plant and the launch of the company’s latest model, Wraith.
Many of the roles are based at the Rolls-Royce's HQ at Goodwood, with around half in marketing, sales, aftersales, public relations and the carmaker's Bespoke business.
The remainder will be based in engineering and manufacturing and are directly linked to the production of Wraith, which is currently in pre-production with the first cars available to customers in the autumn.
A number of new positions have also been created in Rolls-Royce regional offices around the world.
“I am delighted to announce this recruitment programme, made possible by the continuing success of our company,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, chief executive, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
“Our cautious optimism at the beginning of the year has proven to be correct and our goal for the business remains the same: consistent, sustainable growth. This process continues through the creation of a significant number of new roles and our ability to attract the very best talent in the manufacturing and luxury sectors.”
He continued, “Rolls-Royce is a Great British manufacturing success story. We now enter the next chapter of this company’s history and can look forward with confidence to a bright future.”
An advertising campaign for the new roles kicks off this week, with the Sunday Times and Marketing Week featuring the first adverts. Further details can also be on the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars website.
