Rolls-Royce seeks record number of apprentices

Rolls-Royce has announced that it is seeking a record number of candidates for its 2015 apprenticeship programme. Sixteen places are available, the highest number of annual apprenticeships since the programme launched in 2006.

The Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Apprenticeship Programme provides people aged 16-24 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 class room-based studying for nationally recognised qualifications.

The selection process is designed to guarantee recruitment of the very best candidates who have the opportunity to develop with the company following a successful apprenticeship period. The successful applicants will join the programme in September 2015.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: “I am delighted to announce the start of recruitment for next year’s apprenticeship programme. We are committed to developing future talent at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and I am especially pleased that we will welcome a record number of new apprentices to the business in 2015.”

Applications should be made online before 31st January.
