Bentley Motors is holding an apprentice open day on 19th March at its worldwide headquarters in Crewe, Cheshire. All enthusiastic students are welcome to attend, tickets are not required.
During the open day, which runs from 9am-1pm, anybody interested in joining the Bentley apprenticeship scheme will be able to meet with current apprentices who will be on hand to demonstrate some of the skills that they have acquired during their training during the open day. Bentley Academy staff will also be available to discuss the application process and explain how a Bentley apprenticeship scheme can be the start of a rewarding career in the industry.
The latest Bentley – the new Continental GT – will be on display and visitors will have the opportunity to visit a special design exhibition where they will get a glimpse inside the usually secret and closed world of the Bentley design studios and also a rare chance to view some of the finest Bentleys from over the past 90 years.
Bentley is looking to recruit 20 apprentices in the following fields: craft, technical, technician, junior engineer, and commercial and business, all of whom will follow a two, three or four year course depending on the subject.
The 2011 apprenticeship programme will start in September and will be run in conjunction with local colleges so that apprentices can gain the relevant academic qualifications via a day release scheme that will compliment their work-based learning. Applications are open until 16th May and candidates should apply online.
“Our apprenticeship scheme has been recognised as one of the best at a national level and we are looking for enthusiastic students who relish a challenge and who will seize this opportunity to display their potential,” says Christine Gaskell, member of the Board for Personnel.
