Exclusive car marque, Bentley, recruiting for 200 jobs

Crewe-based luxury motor manufacturer, Bentley, is creating 200 jobs as part of its Beyond100 strategy.

The Five-in-Five plan commits Bentley to launching five new electric models by 2030.

The positions cover multiple departments, with approximately 50% focused on electrical competencies as Bentley aims for full electrification of its product range within seven years.

Although roles are based at Bentley’s headquarters in Crewe, the company has introduced hybrid working – a blend of onsite and remote working.

Within brand new engineering offices, following multimillion-pound investment, Bentley has added collaboration zones to promote interaction, and moved to hot desks or no individual offices, to both save space and encourage more impromptu discussion and greater teamwork.

Dr Matthias Rabe, Bentley’s member of the board for research and development, said: “Bentley is in the middle of the most significant transformative phase in the company’s long and illustrious history.

“Extraordinary products have always been at the heart of our business, however tomorrow’s engineers face the most exciting challenges in a generation as we become an exclusively electric car business.

“We are looking for true innovators, who can create the new future of automotive, support our product ambitions and shape our Beyond100 vision as we aim for leadership within sustainable luxury mobility.”

As well as the need for electrical engineers, vacancies will cover the full spectrum of the business, from engineering project managers to buyers.

Bentley said it is focusing on attracting a wide range of talent, including problem solvers and digital innovators from all walks of life, with the aim of achieving greater diversity.
