Lotus will create more than 100 jobs in engineering and manufacturing at its Norfolk headquarters.
Lotus are looking for over 60 extra people to develop new products within its engineering division. A further 40 manufacturing operatives will be employed to meet increasing global demand for Lotus cars as the manufacturer enters new markets worldwide.
The manufacturer’s recruitment drive follows significant levels of investment in recent years by owners DRB-HICOM, which has allowed the company to increase its focus on engineering, productivity, efficiency and quality.
Mark Pym, Group Head of Human Resources at Lotus, said, “Lotus’ successes have always been built on our talented and dedicated workforce and as we embark on a period of strengthening, it’s crucial that we grow our workforce to support this. It’s a positive sign for both the UK car industry and Lotus that we are able to recruit such a high number.”
Aslam Farikullah, Chief Operating Officer at Lotus, said, “We want Lotus to be at the forefront of the global automotive industry and for us to remain competitive, we will introduce more exciting products – there has never been a better time to be part of the future of Lotus.”
