The satellite offices, funded by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), have been selected as part of a bid to access “the skilled talent pool” in Glasgow and Cardiff.

More than 100 jobs will be created at Glasgow Airport’s Business Park and in St Mellons, Cardiff.

Last year, a deal was announced between Australia, the UK and US (AUKUS) to create a new fleet of nuclear-powered submarines using Rolls-Royce reactors.

In Cardiff, Rolls-Royce Submarines is looking to attract people with a background in mechanical design, materials engineering, structural integrity analysis, thermal analysis and fluid dynamics.

For Glasgow, the focus is on recruiting those with a pedigree in electrical controls and instrumentation and cyber security.

Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said: “I welcome Rolls-Royce Submarines opening a new UK Government-funded Glasgow office, creating more than 100 highly-skilled jobs.

“Scottish skills, expertise and innovation make an enormous contribution to the UK’s defence industry, with massive benefits for our national security and economy.

“The UK Government is committed to growing our economy, including by working with the defence industry to support its success in the UK and in exporting overseas.”

Rolls-Royce Submarines Steve Carlier added: “This is a time of unprecedented growth for our business.

“To help us succeed we want to attract the brightest and best from across the UK to help us build a better world with nuclear.
