Rolls-Royce seeks apprentices for engineering careers

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is recruiting for a record number of places on its apprenticeship programme.

In a statement, released this week, the luxury car manufacturer revealed this year it is seeking a record 31 candidates to join its team at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex.

Apprentices will study for BEng mechanical engineering degrees at the University of Chichester, while attending its new engineering and digital technology park.

Apprenticeships last for up to four years and include college and university courses that are nationally recognised, alongside on-the-job training at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Top performing applicants will join the firm in August 2019, working alongside specialised craftspeople in leather, wood, paint, engineering and assembly roles. Following a successful apprenticeship period, there is a chance for them to develop within the company, with a number of previous apprentices now taking up leadership roles.

The closing date for applications is 13 March 2019.
