Rolls-Royce Submarines has announced more than 200 jobs will be created with the opening of two new offices in Scotland and Wales.
The firm said it is aiming to attract engineers and specialists from across the UK to work on its growing portfolio of defence nuclear projects.
The satellite offices, funded by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), will be based at Glasgow Airport Business Park and in St Mellons, Cardiff.
Rolls-Royce Submarines said more than 100 jobs will be created in each city to „help access the skilled talent pools in both regions”.
In Glasgow, the focus is on recruiting those with a pedigree in electrical controls and instrumentation and cyber security.
While in Cardiff, the company is looking to attract people with a background in mechanical design, materials engineering, structural integrity analysis, thermal analysis and fluid dynamics.
The announcement comes following a deal last year between Australia, the UK and US (AUKUS) to create a new fleet of nuclear-powered submarines using Rolls-Royce reactors.
