Bentley Motors is planning to recruit 100 engineers to work across multiple disciplines within engineering, including supporting the delivery of the ambitious Five-in-Five plan, which commits Bentley to launching a new electric model each year, from 2025, redefining Bentley’s credentials as the benchmark manufacturer in sustainable luxury mobility.
It’s an ambitious plan and no doubt people across this sector are eyeing the jobs up and assessing whether they have the skills for it. The down side? You’d be working in Crewe…
Further information on the current vacancies can be found at www.bentleycareers.com with applications opening today for 50 vacancies and increasing over the coming weeks and months to 100. Whilst the positions cover multiple disciplines of engineering and research and development, approximately 50 per cent are focused on electrical competencies as Bentley aims for full electrification of its product range within eight 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 multi-million 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.
Commenting on the opportunities, 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 has 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.”
