Rolls-Royce to create 100 new jobs

Updated: 
Luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce is to create more than 100 new jobs, following record sales over the last three years and expansion of its manufacturing plant.

Many of the new jobs will be based at the firm's site in Goodwood, West Sussex, with around half in marketing, sales, and public relations and others in engineering and manufacturing directly linked to the production of the new Wraith model.


Torsten Muller-Otvos, chief executive of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: "I am delighted to announce this recruitment programme, made possible by the continuing success of our company.

"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."

Business Secretary Vince Cable said: "Last week's automotive industrial strategy underlined the Government's commitment to work with world-class companies like Rolls-Royce Motor Cars on the future of the sector. Today's announcement shows how well the industry continues to grow. With the right investment, skills and R&D, we will help it grow even more."
