Aston Martin has launched its first campaign to recruit 1,000 employees, based across its two manufacturing facilities in Gaydon, Warwickshire and St Athan, Wales.

The luxury automotive manufacturer has announced it is investing £200m in new products and facilities, signifying its long-term future in the UK.

The company will be holding an initial recruitment event at the International Centre for Aerospace Training (ICAT) in South Wales between 11:00-15:00 on March 30.

Held in conjunction with Cardiff & the Vale College and supported by the Welsh Government, the event will showcase the various roles currently available at Aston Martin, as well as future training / apprenticeship opportunities.

Aston Martin Group’s HR director, Michael Kerr commented: “Our new manufacturing facility is an important part of Aston Martin’s Second Century Plan and it is crucial that we have a world-class team at the heart of our new plant.

‘We are looking for dedicated, committed and passionate people to join the Aston Martin team.”

Minister for Economy Edwina Hart welcomed the Aston Martin recruitment event.

She said: “It is testament to Aston Martin’s commitment to Wales that recruitment has already begun for the first of the 750 vacancies at St Athan.

“Aston Martin is offering numerous exciting career path opportunities and the Welsh Government is committed to continue working closely with this world-class manufacturer to ensure we are able to deliver highly-skilled employment and world-class apprenticeship opportunities in Wales for many generations to come.”
