Rolls-Royce seeks new apprentices to join super-luxury success story

Rolls-Royce seeks new apprentices to join super-luxury success story (PresseBox) (Goodwood, ) 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 2012, working alongside skilled craftspeople in leather, wood, paint, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, assembly and finesse roles.

The company's Apprenticeship Programme was successfully launched in 2006 and 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 studying for nationally recognised qualifications. The programme has been designed in conjunction with the Learning Skills Council (LSC) and Chichester and Northbrook colleges.

The selection process is designed to guarantee recruitment of the very best candidates who could have the opportunity to further grow with the company following a successful apprenticeship period. Since the programme's launch in 2006, more than 30 young people have been employed following completion of their apprenticeship. In 2011, the programme was extended to the business areas and the first business apprentice was recruited.

"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", said Andrew Ball, Corporate Communications Manager, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, speaking at the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) launch event for National Apprentice Week. "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."

In addition to the Apprenticeship Programme, more than 50 young men and women were employed with the company in 2011 on industrial placements ranging in duration from six to twelve months; further positions are likely to be available this year. The company also runs a successful graduate programme, with new positions made available each year.
