Rolls looks to fill roles in latest apprenticeship initiative

03 December 2013 #SMMT News

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is seeking candidates for its 2014 Apprentice Programme, which will see successful applicants working with skilled craftspeople across a range of the firm’s manufacturing sections.

Launched in 2006 and developed in collaboration with the Learning Skills Council, the Apprenticeship Programme gives young people aged 16-24 the chance to develop their skills with the luxury car brand. Individual apprenticeships can last up to four years, and combine a learning-by-doing approach with study for nationally recognised qualifications. Participants may also have the chance to advance their employment with Rolls-Royce if their placement is deemed to have been successful.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars said, “I am delighted to announce the start of recruitment for this year’s apprenticeship programme. Our new apprentices will join a British luxury manufacturing success story and will be ideally positioned to take advantage of the unique opportunities available at Rolls-Royce.”

It emerged in October that more people than ever before are taking part in UK-based apprenticeships, with Automotive Council members anticipating the creation of an additional 7,600 apprenticeships and 1,700 graduate roles in the motor industry over the next five years.

Those wishing to apply for the Rolls-Royce Apprenticeship Programme should do so at The closing date for applications is 31 January 2014.
