About Bentley

This is a business built on people. Yes, we want to be known for our ideas, our technological innovations, our exceptional products. But none of it is achievable without talented individuals working together to make a diverse and successful team

 

‘There is no industry right now that is more interesting than the world of automotive and mobility. It’s all about individuals and society’s future.’ These are the words of Bentley board member Dr Astrid Fontaine. Our challenge goes beyond making great cars – we have to reimagine the future. You can see that as daunting, but to us it’s a wonderful opportunity, the start of an extraordinary journey – for our business, our customers, and for you…

  • OUR HISTORY

    Bentley was founded in 1919 by W.O. Bentley, and became renowned for extraordinary cars, innovative engineering and the highest quality craftsmanship. Our customers were equally renowned, and helped cement Bentley’s reputation for high performance with their racing exploits. Today, Bentley benefits from being part of the VW Group, opening up a world of opportunities, experiences and support.

  • STRATEGY

    Within a decade Bentley will transform from a 100-year-old luxury car company into a new, sustainable, wholly ethical technology and mobility solutions business. We have a clear vision: to create extraordinary journeys for customers. Our mission is to inspire our customers with a magical fusion of craftsmanship, innovation and sustainability. Our Beyond100 strategy pledges to take the lead in sustainable luxury mobility. All our cars will be hybrid or electric by 2026.

  • CULTURE

    Nobody is better placed to describe life at Bentley than our own Colleagues. ‘In my first year I was responsible for a purchase package of £1m.’ ‘People are coming in with new ideas and Bentley really wants to hear them.’ ‘If something excites you there’s an opportunity to do it – if you want to change something, you can.’ ‘What strikes you is the sense of community.’ At Bentley, every individual thrives.

OUR VALUES & BEHAVIOURS

To be the world leader in luxury mobility we have to be a fast-paced organisation without barriers, where new ideas are welcome. To achieve this we need to continually focus on how we work together, with the aim of creating a winning culture. We’ve distilled that ethic into the five values shown below, each of which is defined and measured by two supporting behaviours. Together they represent the standards we aspire to and measure ourselves by – and form the foundation for building a highly effective team.

  • BENEFITS

    Our aim is to create extraordinary Colleague journeys to support and recognise your valued contribution. In addition to a competitive salary, we offer a package of rewards and benefits, including 35 days’ holiday, bonus scheme, contributory pension and an optional car lease scheme. We offer a health and fitness programme, onsite gym, tennis courts, a restaurant, convenience store, and an occupational health team. 

  • DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

    At Bentley, we believe Diversity Wins. To us, a diverse workforce is as crucial as cutting-edge production systems and innovative technologies. We believe in an inclusive and collaborative environment where everyone is empowered to be the best they can be. Everyone is welcome, and we have developed many networks, supporting communities such as LGBTQ+, BAME and Women in Automotive.

  • SUSTAINABILITY

    Our commitment to sustainability goes further than revolutionising powertrain technology. Our Crewe site is officially carbon neutral, and features a ‘living green wall’ made up of 2,600 plants, along with 300,000 flying bees in nearby hives. We’ve halved energy consumption, cut waste disposal by 98%, and installed a 10,000 solar-panel car port. We also strongly embrace our social sustainability, through initiatives that help to sustain and enrich our local communities.
