Aston Martin has confirmed it will hire more than 400 technicians at its UK facilities in Gaydon, Warwickshire, and St Athan, Wales.

The hiring plans come in response to the increasing demand for its luxury vehicles.

The company attributes this expansion to the successful launch of its new models, the Vantage and DB12, along with the sustained popularity of the DBX797.

It has prompted an upscale in advanced manufacturing activities at both sites.

Simon Smith, Chief People Officer of Aston Martin said: “We are delighted to be able to increase our manufacturing team across both our facilities in Gaydon and St Athan, creating further employment opportunities for our local communities.”

“These 400 agency roles, supporting our production plans and introduction of thrilling new products, are a fantastic opportunity for new team members to join us and play their own part in our iconic brand’s next chapter.”

Despite experiencing a tumultuous 2023, with its shares peaking during the summer due to a surge in demand from the ultra-wealthy, the luxury car manufacturer faced challenges later in the year due to production issues with the DB12 model. 

Early February saw the company's shares dip following news Lawrence Stroll, the executive chairman, was on the lookout for a new chief executive, marking the fourth such search in recent years.

Aston Martin currently has a workforce of 2,500 across its two manufacturing sites in the UK, reflecting its status as a significant employer in the region.
