Bentley Motors opens 2018 recruitment
Earlier this week, Bentley Motors launched its 2018 trainee recruitment campaign with 86 new positions available for apprentices, undergraduates and graduates to start in the autumn of 2018.
Apprentice applications will open from 10th February at www.bentleycareers.com with undergraduate and graduate opportunities added throughout the month.
Vacancies cover commercial areas such as sales and marketing, communications, human resources, finance and purchasing, as well as the traditional engineering and manufacturing opportunities.
For prospective apprentice candidates wishing to find out more, an open day will be held at Bentley’s headquarters in Crewe on Saturday 10th February.
Dr Astrid Fontaine, from Bentley Motors, commented: “Bentley continues to demonstrate its commitment to future talent.
“There are many opportunities available, in all areas of the business, at different ages and stages of education.
“We are looking for extraordinary candidates, our experts of tomorrow, who can add to our already highly-skilled and passionate workforce.”
Bentley’s apprenticeship programme, with 40 positions available, offers an invaluable way of gaining recognised qualifications while undertaking key training at Bentley - for three or four years, dependent on which area the apprentice is working in.
Approximately half of the apprentices will be undertaking the manufacturing programme, learning skills within areas such as wood, paint and mechatronics.
Bentley was recently announced as the Best Employer in the Automotive Sector by the School Leavers Awards, voted for solely by apprentices.
