Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Goodwood – Level 6 Digital and Technology Solutions (Interior Surface Finishing) – 4 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.

Our department designs and produces interior surface components using a variety of materials and finishes. Throughout the process we combine craftmanship with technology to exacting standards.

We are seeking one apprentice to join our team commencing end of August 2024.

As an apprentice you will quickly learn the fundamentals of automotive planning and manufacturing from a programming and systems support perspective. The principal role is to construct robust computer programmes using cutting edge skills.

Excellent communication skills are essential, as is the ability to think logically and to work both independently and as part of a team.

What will you be doing?

Supporting the detailed computer programming activities of the Interior Surface Centre.

Being part of the team working on exciting future Rolls-Royce products.

Developing knowledge in sound programming.

Being self-motivated to bring about change for the better.

Why choose us?

Great Pay – A competitive salary enhanced every six months depending on individual progress and performance starting at circa £17,600 per annum, rising to over £34,000 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.
