Aston Martin gives automotive sector a boost with 400 new UK jobs

The UK’s car making industry has received a welcome shot in the arm after Aston Martin announced plans to recruit 400 new technicians.

Applications are now open for positions working at the British marque’s headquarters in Gaydon, as well as its manufacturing facility in St Athan, South Wales.

The new recruits will be tasked with supporting production of the brand’s next generation of sports cars and the DBX707 luxury SUV.

The company has decided to grow its workforce as it looks ahead to a busy year in 2024, which is set to include the launch of several new models.

They will join the likes of the new Vantage and DB12 in Aston Martin’s line-up.
