Porsche Cars Great Britain Limited is the sole UK and Ireland importer of Porsche cars and is wholly owned by Porsche AG in Stuttgart. The UK and Ireland are the fourth largest market for Porsche in the world. Porsche has been in Reading since 1977, and in its current location at Calcot since 1985.
Located adjacent to the M4, the current site covers nine acres and is totally unique. Accommodating approximately 100 employees, the Reading office was designed to reflect the corporate identity of Porsche. A full workshop is integral to the building as well as a glass covered atrium where the current and historic models are regularly displayed.
There are 34 Porsche Centres across the UK including our Porsche Service Centres. All offer the highest standard of sales and aftersales service. Our Porsche Centres, and those who work within them, reflect the quality and technology that only Porsche can offer. All of our Porsche Technicians are trained to the highest standard to work confidently with the latest innovations and the most up-to-date technical equipment.
This quote gets to the heart of everything that makes Porsche what it is. As a brand, as a company and as an automotive manufacturer. It has been our guiding star – for more than 65 years. And it covers all the values that characterise our work and our vehicles. It’s no wonder, therefore, that no-one can describe this better than the person who created the very first sports car to bear the Porsche name: Ferdinand Anton Ernst - or Ferry Porsche, for short.
In the beginning, I looked around and could not find the car I'd been dreaming of: a small, lightweight sports car that uses energy efficiently. So I decided to build it myself.
His dream of the perfect sports car has always driven us – throughout our history. And we get closer to achieving it every day. With every concept, every development and every model. Along the way, we follow a plan, an ideal that unites us all. We refer to it simply as the Porsche Principle. The underlying principle is to always get the most out of everything. From day one, we have strived to translate performance into speed – and success – in the most intelligent way possible. It's no longer all about horsepower, but more ideas per horsepower. This principle originates on the race track and is embodied in every single one of our cars. We call it "Intelligent Performance".
We are looking for personalities who value an interesting professional environment and top-class opportunities for their personal development. Personalities who believe that they are capable of meeting the requirements of Porsche and who are fascinated by sports cars. Become part of the Porsche myth.
Manifold possibilities exist for your entry into Porsche - be it as a student, a university graduate, or an experienced professional. We offer interesting opportunities for a professional development to committed people.

Our company has always been characterized by its staff. It is in manual work - which is still, as ever, greatly valued - that the true ability and the real emotions can be found.
At Porsche, creativity and courage are required, but they are also promoted. And we know that our employees make use of the opportunities they are given.
Porsche is already training tomorrow's specialists. This is not just a contribution to long-term quality assurance; it is also our socio-political responsibility, particularly towards young people. For many years, Porsche has had an above-average number of professional trainees compared to the rest of the German motor industry.
Our staff can proudly state that there is a piece of them in every Porsche. This pleasure in individual responsibility at work will, in the end, be experienced by the customer, in the truest sense.
It is often said that the basic human needs have been satisfied for a long time. And that surplus, even satiation is the problem. We at Porsche take a somewhat different view of this.
Basic needs are pure and unadulterated. We at Porsche create the framework for this and want no more and no less than this:
Our size and organizational structure allows short communication routes and decision-making, as well as a pragmatic solution to problems that occur. They allow for unbureaucratic cooperation between different departments. This means varied activities in which everyone can develop individually. Work content and areas of responsibility are individually tailored.
All of this taken together, the orientation of work to the person, and the size and independence of our company, characterize our work as a team.
