Rolls Royce Looking for New Apprentices

The famous British luxury automaker Rolls Royce has announced that debut of the recruitment program for the company’s new apprentices. The applicants who are selected will join a training program that will start at the end of August 2011, working alongside skilled craftspeople in the paint, wood, leather, motor vehicle, engineering and business areas.

The apprenticeship program started 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. This can last for as much as four years and combines on-the-job training with studying for nationally recognized qualifications. The opportunity to join Rolls Royce employees after a successful apprenticeship is a possibility but only the best apprentices are selected.

The program has been designed in conjunction with the Learning Skills Council (LSC), South East Economic Development Agency (SEEDA) and Chichester and Northbrook colleges.

The apprentices join the company at an exciting time, with Rolls-Royce having announced record sales results last year. The carmaker has celebrated the Centenary of the Spirit of Ecstasy with several high-profile events and recently unveiled 102EX, the Phantom Experimental Electric (EE) at the Geneva International Motor Show.

“We are delighted to announce the start of recruitment for this year’s apprenticeship program. This clearly demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the development and training of young people in the UK manufacturing industry. On completion of the program, our new apprentices will be ideally positioned to take advantage of the unique opportunities available at Rolls-Royce,” said Torsten Muller-Otvos, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

In 2010, 35 young men and women were employed with the company on industrial placements ranging in duration from six to twelve months, with even more positions likely to be made available this year.
