About us

Bentley  has  always  had  one  clear  aim:  to  create  extraordinary  cars  for  extraordinary  customers.

We  also  have  a  history  of  thinking  about  tomorrow.  From  the  moment  the  first  3-Litre  engine  roared  into  life  in  a  mews  behind  London’s  Baker  Street  in  1919,  we’ve  been  continually  driven  by  the  idea  of  exceeding  expectations.  From  the  start,  our  customers  have  bought  into  the  Bentley  vision  and  chosen  our  cars  to  push  the  boundaries.  In  the  early  days  this  took  place  on  the  roads  and  racetracks  of  Europe.  Today,  our  customers  across  the  globe  shape  the  world  in  diverse  and  exciting  ways.

For  over  90  years,  the  thousands  of  extraordinary  people  that  work  at  Bentley  have  fed  this  vision.  Inspired  by  our  customers,  we  create  the  most  luxurious  and  powerful  cars  in  the  world.  With  each  new  model,  we  strive  to  stretch  the  bounds  of  possibility.  As  a  result,  Bentley  remains  the  definitive  British  luxury  car  company,  crafting  the  world’s  most  desirable  high  performance  cars.

Why work for us

Bentley  is  a  unique  place  to  work,  with  its  own  special  culture  and  people  who  are  all  driven  by  the  same  ideal:  being  the  most  successful  luxury  car  brand  in  the  world.  Simple  to  say,  challenging  to  achieve.  But  it  is  this  idea  that  motivates  everyone  working  at  Bentley  every  day;  it’s  what  makes  us  challenge  ourselves  to  be  the  best  we  can.  And  we  know,  the  only  way  we’ll  achieve  our  goal  is  by  finding  the  best  people  and  encouraging  them  to  be  their  best  -  to  be  extraordinary.

Based  in  Crewe,  we  believe  in  ensuring  our  organisational,  product  and  brand  goals  are  closely  aligned.  There’s  a  close-knit  feel  that  belies  the  global  nature  of  our  business.  It  means  that  people  who  commit  to  a  Bentley  UK  career  feel  that  they  can  make  a  real  difference  on  a  day-to-day  basis.  At  the  same  time,  our  scale  also  lets  us  think  big  as  a  company.  By  working  closely  together  across  every  part  of  the  business,  we  achieve  our  objectives.

At  the  heart  of  Bentley  lies  a  vibrant  community  that  lives  and  breathes  luxury  motor  cars.  Many  of  our  colleagues  have  worked  here  for  many  years  -  up  to  three  generations  of  families  have  learnt  and  passed  on  their  expertise.
