Bentley announces largest-ever intake

Bentley Motors has announced the company’s biggest-ever intake of trainees for 2022. It will invite 113 new recruits to company’s Crewe headquarters in a phased recruitment.

The future talent will consist of apprentices, undergraduates and graduates taking up positions in departments such as lean manufacturing, marketing and communications, systems and electrical engineering and business management.

Additionally, around 20% of the intake will be in digital skills such as software engineering and data science.

As part of the recruitment phase, Bentley will host virtual outreach activities at a number of universities around the UK.

Dr Karen Lange, member of the board for human resources at Bentley Motors, said: “The automotive industry is going through unprecedented change – we are transforming and so are those around us. That’s why we are committed to continuing our focus on our early careers intake and developing the future talent that will help transform our future skills requirements. These colleagues will play a key role as we evolve our entire operations to lead sustainable luxury mobility into the future.”

As part of its Beyond100 strategy, Bentley plans to become a global leader in sustainable luxury mobility, reinventing every aspect of its business. This includes becoming end-to-end carbon neutral by 2030, and moving to full electrification through its full model range in the same timeframe.
