Aston Martin shapes its future with new apprentices

Aston Martin will recruit two new clay sculpting apprentices to its Gaydon headquarters at the beginning of 2015, adding to the 12 already recruited across the business.

The expanding apprenticeship programme heralds a new direction for Aston Martin, demonstrating the importance that the manufacturer and wider UK automotive industry now places on developing the next generation of skilled workers.

The successful candidates will literally help shape the manufacturer’s future models, taking designs from their initial concept to full-size models.

Design Director Marek Reichman said, “A skilled clay sculptor has the ability to turn a 2D sketch into 3D life-size reality. Clay sculpting remains an integral part of the design process at Aston Martin and is vital in helping the design team visualise future models.

“We’re looking for creative young people with a keen interest in the motor industry and a passion for all things Aston Martin.

“This is an incredible opportunity for talented and ambitious individuals to join one of the world’s most respected automotive design teams and work on new cars that, I’m sure, will be admired around the world.”

Applicants should hold five GCSEs at grade C or above, including English, Maths, Science and Art or similar. Click through for details on how to apply for the Aston Martin clay sculptor apprenticeship.
