GOODWOOD, UNITED KINGDOM – Dec 12, 2013: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has today announced that the company’s Leathershop has been expanded following the continued success of Phantom and Ghost models and the newly-launched Wraith. An additional 10 positions in the machinist team have been created.

The machinist team was launched with just four people in 2002 and currently has 40 skilled associates working across two shifts. The team is the most international in the company, with nationalities represented including British, Canadian, Brazilian, Portuguese, Ukrainian, German and Polish. Current team members come from a variety of industries, including saddlery, ladies lingerie, upholstery, couture work and sail-making. The team also hosts interns, apprentices and graduates during their time at the company.

Andrew Monachan, General Manager Leathershop, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “I am delighted to confirm that we have expanded our Leathershop here at the Home of Rolls-Royce. Every one of our cars is hand built to order and we are reintroducing craft skills that, in many cases, would otherwise have lain dormant or been lost completely.”

Potential candidates should have suitable skills but do not need to currently be working as a machinist. Skills gained in a previous role or as a hobbyist could be appropriate and full and extensive training will be provided.
