Young people with a passion for a career in the automotive industry are being encouraged to apply for an apprenticeship place at BMW Group’s manufacturing operations across the UK.

The news comes at an important and exciting time for BMW Group, as it leads the way in the electro-mobility sphere and gears up for the debut of the first fully electric MINI later this year.

More than 40 places are available to start in August 2019 at the company’s Oxford, Swindon and Hams Hall sites, in a wide-range of roles including maintenance, engineering, IT and business.

Places are at MINI Plant Oxford, the heart and home of MINI production; Plant Swindon, which produces pressings and sub-assemblies for both MINI and BMW; and Plant Hams Hall which manufactures highly-efficient MINI and BMW engines.

Apprenticeships last between three and four years and cover a wide range of areas to help equip young people with the skills needed for a successful career in the automotive sector.

Simon Farrall, Head of Apprentice and Associate Training for BMW Group UK, said: “An apprenticeship is a great way to start a career in the automotive industry during a new and exciting era of electro-mobility. We see apprentices as the future leaders of our business and many of our most experienced people started out this way. If you have a passion to solve problems, like working in a team and can rise to a challenge, then we want to hear from you.”

As part of BMW Group’s commitment to attracting more young females into engineering, applications are also now open for the ‘Girls Go Technical’ programme, which will run during the Easter holidays. This programme, which gives a fascinating insight into BMW Group’s three UK production sites, is aimed at females aged between 15 to 24 who are considering a technical apprenticeship in manufacturing.

Second year maintenance apprentice, Tabitha Steel, from Oxford, said: "So far I’ve found my apprenticeship hugely rewarding. It’s given me practical, hands on experience, as well as the opportunity to earn while I learn. The chance to work with so many experienced and talented people across the business has been absolutely invaluable. To anyone who is even remotely thinking about whether the car industry might be right for them I’d say definitely give it a go – every day there’s a new challenge to get to grips with and solve."

Year 11-13 students, as well as parents and teachers, can find out more about the opportunities available by attending a special BMW Group apprenticeship open evening in Oxford on 17th January 2019.

Guests will have the opportunity to talk to current and former apprentices, as well as training managers to find out more about the programmes’ content, its benefits and how to apply.

Depending on the programme, apprentice training leads to a Level Three Competency Qualification, while some young people will have the opportunity to progress right through to degree level in the course of their career depending on their performance.

Applicants will need a minimum of five GCSEs at Grade 5 (old Grade C) or above, including Maths and English. For engineering, business and IT degree apprenticeships, applicants will also need relevant higher qualifications, which will be outlined in each job advert.

Entries are open until 13th March 2019 but early applications are advised. Apprenticeships start in August 2019.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
