Young people with a passion for manufacturing and business have the chance to apply for an apprenticeship at MINI Plant Swindon.
The business is looking for 23 new recruits to take up places across the MINI production plants at Oxford, Hams Hall near Birmingham and includes four for Swindon in September.
Apprenticeships last between three and four years and cover a wide range of skills from human resources and business to electrical maintenance and engineering.
The training leads to an NVQ level three qualification and some apprentices will have the opportunity to progress right through to degree level.
All apprentices attend college on a part-time basis and the Swindon plant will be working alongside a local college to help deliver the programme – the North Star Campus of Swindon College.
Laura Lyne, head of training for the UK, said: “Investment in skilled young people is a key part of our development strategy for the plant. It is vital that we attract the very best young talent to ensure the business has the right skills for the future, and we are delighted to be able to continue to offer young people a chance to join our modern apprenticeship programme.”
The 23 new apprentices will join 145 existing apprentices across the company’s production plants at Oxford, Swindon, Hams Hall, and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited in Goodwood.
