If you have ever fancied pursuing a career in the fast-moving car world then you could be in luck as the BMW Group has just announced details of its apprentice recruitment campaign.
Available positions will cover engineering, maintenance and business, with successful applicants set to be based at BMW Group-run sites across England. These include Oxford and Swindon, Hams Hall near Birmingham, Goodwood and Farnborough.
Eighty of the ninety-five apprentices can look forward to getting hands-on experience working in the automaker’s production network, including the MINI Plant in Oxford, Plant Hams Hall which assembles engines for Mini and BMW vehicles, and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ state-of-the-art facility at Goodwood.
Due to on-going COVID-19 restrictions, a number of ‘Virtual Apprenticeship’ events are going to be held by company representatives on dates between January 12 and January 20, 2022.
Simon Farrall – Head of Apprentice and Associate Training for BMW Group UK – said: “This is a chance for young people to start their career with a major global player in the automotive industry.
“We are at the forefront of the biggest changes in the car industry for 100 years, with the shift to electrification and the vital role our industry will play in the decarbonisation of the economy.
“That makes it one of the most exciting places to start building a career and the breadth of opportunities which BMW Group can offer is extraordinary,” he added.
“We are very proud of our apprentice scheme and we have many examples of team leaders and senior managers who started their careers as apprentices.”
BMW Group’s apprenticeships are ranked in the RateMyApprenticeship Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers’ table.
Lasting between two and four years, the scheme equips people “with the skills they need for a successful career in the automotive sector” by “providing valuable, hands-on experience”, said the company which, as of December 31 last year, had a workforce totalling 120,726 people.
