Description

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Goodwood – Level 2 Sewing Machinist – 2 Year Apprenticeship (August 2024)


Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is part of the BMW Group and its Goodwood manufacturing plant sits in the heart of the West Sussex countryside.

As the epitome of exclusive super luxury, a Rolls-Royce delivers unmatched quality, style and performance. Behind the legendary brand is a team of passionate and highly talented people who do their utmost to satisfy the wishes of clients who commission a Rolls-Royce.

The maxim of Sir Henry Royce, ‘take the best that exists and make it better’, permeates in everything we do at Rolls-Royce. As an apprentice, you will gain practical insights into the corporate operations of a world-class automotive manufacturer while developing yourself and your career.


As a Rolls-Royce Industrial Sewing apprentice, you will gain a general appreciation of leather and other materials manufacturing through on-the-job training coupled with a Level 2 Sewing Machinist qualification from Chichester College. There are multiple vacancies available for this role commencing end of August 2024.

You'll spend two years developing your skills by learning everything about the sewing department including the basic maintenance of the machines. Sewing apprentices will have one day per week studying Lean theory and one day per week engaged in sewing practical.

Your final year will be in a specific area of expertise in preparation for your post-apprenticeship role in the area you choose to specialise in.

A Rolls-Royce Apprenticeship can offer many career options and enable you to make the most of your potential. To date, 100% of production apprentices successfully completing the programme have been offered full time employment.


Why choose us?

Great Pay – A competitive salary enhanced every six months depending on individual progress and performance starting at £18,900 rising to over £25,300 at the end of the programme. You will also receive 27 days holiday (pro rata to your contract) and have access to an attractive pension scheme.

Rewarding Work-Life Balance – You will have a 40 hour working week. Start and finish times will vary to meet the needs of your work-based placements and college hours.

Exciting Additional Benefits – Throughout your apprenticeship, you will be supported by our experts and many fellow apprentices. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy other employee benefits including access to our discounts scheme and a subsidised on-site restaurant. If aged 18 and over, you will also have the opportunity to purchase or lease a BMW or MINI vehicle of your choice at a very special and reduced rate as part of your benefits package.

Development Potential – In the UK, we invest around £3 million per year in vocational and professional training for our employees. This means we invest in you, giving you the relevant BMW specific training that you will require to be an active member of our team.

Networking Opportunities – With around 8,000 employees and all three of the BMW Groups brands being represented in the UK, there are an abundance of networking opportunities allowing you to create meaningful working relationships.
