Bentley calls for engineers to implement ‘Five-in-Five’ EV plan

Bentley Motors has announced a recruitment drive for 100 engineers as the company accelerates its “Five-in-Five” plan, which commits Bentley to launch a new electric vehicle model each year from 2025.

The open positions cover multiple disciplines of engineering and research and development, but approximately 50% are focused on electrical competencies as Bentley says it aims for full electrification of its product range within eight years.

As well as the need for electrical engineers, upcoming vacancies will cover the full spectrum of research and development, from UX/UI engineers within concepts and design, to design managers within development and validation of parts and whole vehicles, to chassis engineers working on production-ready vehicles.
