AS APPRENTICESHIP week rolls to a close, a prestigious car manufacturer has announced it is looking to employ a new batch of bright sparks.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced that the company is seeking candidates for its apprenticeship programme.
The successful applicants will join the programme at the end of August, working alongside skilled craftsmen in leather, wood, paint, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, assembly and finesse roles.
The programme provides people aged 16 to 24 years old with the opportunity to train with the Goodwood-based manufacturer of the world’s best-selling super-luxury cars.
The apprenticeships last for up to four years and combine on-the-job training with studying for nationally-recognised qualifications.
The programme, which has been run since 2006, has been designed in conjunction with the Learning Skills Council and Chichester and Northbrook colleges.
Andrew Ball, the firm’s corporate communications manager, said: ‘We are delighted to announce that Rolls-Royce is seeking candidates for its apprenticeship programme.
‘This demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the development and training of young people at the very highest levels of UK manufacturing.
‘Our new apprentices will join the company at an exciting time, with Rolls-Royce having recently announced record sales in the company’s 107-year history.’
