West Sussex based Rolls-Royce creates 100 new jobs

Luxury car manufacturer Rolls-Royce has announced more than 100 new jobs will be created following record sales over the last three years.

Many of the jobs will be based at the home of Rolls-Royce manufacturing plant in Westhampnett, Chichester.

Half will be in marketing, sales, public relations and the company’s bespoke business. The remainder will be in engineering and manufacturing, and directly linked to the production of the company’s latest model, the Wraith, which is still in pre-prodcuction.

“I am delighted to announce this recruitment programme, made possible by the continuing success of our company,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, chief executive officer of 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.

“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.”

Half-year sales figures announced last week show Rolls‑Royce is on track for another record year in 2013.
