has launched its 2022 apprentice recruitment campaign with 95 places available across the UK, in a wide range of roles including engineering, maintenance, human resources, purchasing and communications, with a start date of September 2022.
This includes around 80 apprentices in the production network, including Mini Plant Oxford, the home of the Mini Electric; Plant Swindon, which produces steel pressings and sub-assemblies for both Mini and BMW; Plant Hams Hall which manufactures highly efficient Mini and BMW engines; and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars at Goodwood. There are also over 15 apprenticeships in Farnborough at the National Sales Company for Mini and BMW and also at Alphabet, the Group’s fleet management subsidiary.
Simon Farrall, BMW Group UK head of apprentice and associate training, 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. 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.”
The apprenticeships last between two and four years and cover a wide range of areas to help equip successful applicants with the skills they need for a successful career in the automotive sector.
