Lotus has created the new positions in response to increased global demand for its sport cars and an anticipated rise in interest in its engineering consultancy services. The firm is also focusing on growing into new global markets as currently around 90 per cent of all Lotus vehicles are exported.
Lotus, which recently unveiled its latest model, the Exige S Roadster, employs more than 1,100 staff across the UK with its headquarters based in Hethel, Norfolk. 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 of both experienced specialists and graduates."
