Luxury car-maker Rolls-Royce has announced the introduction of its first graduate training program.
The new project will create the opportunity for up to 15 high-calibre graduates to join the iconic Goodwood-based brand on a two-year training scheme, and follows a recently launched apprenticeship program for 16-to-24 year olds. The company also already places around 40 university students each year on industrial placements of between six and twelve months.
The graduate training program will aim to give those selected a wide range of professional and practical insights, capabilities and qualifications and will then open to a variety of different career paths such as engineering, facilities management, sales and marketing, finance and IT.
"We are delighted to announce the launch of our graduate programme at an exciting time in our company's history," commented Ian Robertson, chairman and chief executive of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
"We anticipate several hundred new jobs being created at the manufacturing plant over the next few years and our graduates will be ideally positioned to take advantage of this unique opportunity."
Rolls-Royce has recently launched its Phantom Drophead Coupe and also announced the development of a new smaller car to be added to its range within the next three years.
