Rolls-Royce expands leather shop thanks to ongoing success

11 December 2013 #SMMT News

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced that the company’s leather shop has been expanded following the continued success of the Phantom, Ghost and newly-launched Wraith. An additional 10 positions in the machinist team have been created as a result.

The machinist team was launched with just four people in 2002, the West Sussex-based leather shop currently employs 40 skilled associates working across two shifts. The team also hosts interns, apprentices and graduates during their time at the company.

Andrew Monachan, General Manager Leather Shop, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “I am delighted to confirm that we have expanded our leather shop 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. Potential candidates for all Rolls-Royce Motor Cars positions should apply online at:
