has announced plans to recruit 38 new apprentices this year, and the positions are now open for applications. To mark National Apprenticeship Week
, Bentley is inviting passionate individuals to join the prestigious brand to help drive forward its ambitious Beyond100
strategy. The successful candidates will join more than 4,000 workers based at the carbon neutral ‘Dream Factory’ in Crewe, which is working towards becoming ‘end-to-end carbon neutral’ and produce only electric vehicles (EVs) by 2030.
The new apprenticeships on offer will have a strong focus on electrical engineering, digital software and project management. Opportunities range from Level 2 to Level 6, across manufacturing, engineering, quality, purchasing, HR, IT and finance. The programmes are designed to encourage growth, enabling apprentices to develop their skills, work towards an externally recognised qualification and learn from industry experts across Bentley in their day-to-day roles.
Dr Karen Lange, Member of the Board for Human Resources, said: “The Bentley apprenticeship programme represents our commitment to nurturing talent and empowering the next generation of visionaries. Fresh ideas, diverse perspectives and innovative capabilities are vital as we transform the entire business with our Beyond100
strategy and these recruits have the opportunity to help underline our ambitions and shape our future, keeping us at the forefront of innovation and sustainable luxury mobility.”
Emily Ruscoe, a degree apprentice in Body and Trim Engineering, said: “Not only is Bentley a very respected and reputable company, but of all the apprenticeships I looked at, the ones Bentley offered sounded the most exciting and beneficial to my development.
“You are respected, trusted and given responsibilities from the beginning. The support I have received from my manager and the Early Careers Team have both encouraged me and helped me to grow my confidence, whether that be in helping me recognise my achievements, or pushing me outside my comfort zone.”
Earlier this year the luxury British marque was awarded with the Top Employer title for the 13th consecutive year. Bentley is the only UK-based automotive manufacturer to be recognised this way.
The vacancies, now live, are welcomed from school or college leavers or those looking for a change of career. For more information on the available apprenticeship opportunities and how to apply, please visit the website here
