In a move that’s revving up excitement among young talent, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has today flung open the doors to its 2024 Apprenticeship Programme. This initiative, a jewel in the crown of the Rolls-Royce Future Talent programme, has been sculpting the skills of budding professionals since 2006 and stands tall as one of the UK’s most admired and sought-after apprenticeship schemes.
Rolls-Royce is now on the hunt for the next generation of innovators and craftsmen for its 2024 Apprenticeship intake. The application gateway will remain welcoming submissions until the 31st of March, 2024. Those who make the cut will embark on a journey of hands-on, practical training across various departments of the company, rubbing shoulders with seasoned pros.
Each apprentice will also be enrolled in courses to earn nationally recognized qualifications, in partnership with educational institutions in the local area. Given the scheme’s popularity, the company nudges interested candidates to apply sooner rather than later.
Mark Adams, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ Director of Human Resources, trumpets the programme’s inclusivity: “Our Apprenticeships scheme isn’t just for the STEAM wizards; whether you’re into administration, support, or commercial roles, or you’re a craft and manufacturing enthusiast, we’ve got a spot for you. We offer levels from 2 to 6, catering to a wide array of aspirations – from school leavers to those opting out of the traditional university path.”
The programme, part of the broader Rolls-Royce Future Talent initiative, which also encompasses Internships and Graduate Placements, has been a cornerstone of the company’s talent development strategy. Participants gain unparalleled practical training and professional growth opportunities, alongside the experts at the heart of Rolls-Royce. Moreover, apprentices enrich their learning through courses at further and higher education institutions nearby.
This year, the company is rolling out Level 2 Apprenticeships in areas like Interior Trim Centre, Technical Assembly, and more, suitable for those finishing their GCSEs. For A-level graduates, there are Level 3 opportunities and even Level 6 Degree Apprenticeships in various technical domains for those seeking an alternative to university education.
Rolls-Royce emphasizes the diversity of its Apprenticeship offerings, catering to a broad spectrum of interests and educational backgrounds. The aim is not only to nurture STEAM careers but also to open doors for those inclined towards commercial, administrative, and support roles. Notably, this year includes Level 3 opportunities in Logistics and Level 6 Degree Apprenticeships in fields like Marketing and Regional Sales.
The conclusion of the initial training could lead to more advanced studies at Goodwood, with top-performing apprentices potentially securing permanent positions within the company.
As the application window is now wide open, prospective candidates are encouraged to apply promptly due to the limited availability and high demand for these coveted roles. Application deadlines vary by role, with some closing as early as February 25th, and positions may be filled before the final deadline if a sufficient number of applications are received early.
