Rolls-Royce Submarines has plans to create over 200 new jobs with two satellite office launches in Scotland and Wales.

The company aims to bolster its defence nuclear projects team through the project. 

The new roles are designed to draw engineers and specialists from the UK.

They will contribute to the company's expanding defence portfolio. 

The new facilities, supported by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), will be located at the Glasgow Airport Business Park and St Mellons, Cardiff.

The plan will see each location contributing more than 100 positions.


The Glasgow office will primarily seek experts in electrical controls, instrumentation, and cyber security

The Cardiff office will focus on recruiting specialists in mechanical design, materials engineering, structural integrity analysis, thermal analysis, and fluid dynamics.

This recruitment drive follows a tri-nation agreement (AUKUS) between Australia, the UK, and the US.

It’s aimed at developing a new fleet of nuclear-powered submarines that will feature Rolls-Royce reactors.

Welsh Secretary David TC Davies added: "The UK government is focused on doing all we can to drive prosperity and growth and make sure Wales' economy is fit for the 21st century.

"We're delighted to be working with Rolls-Royce who are helping us achieve this."
