BMW triples UK apprentice intake!

Car manufacturing giant BMW is looking to increase its apprenticeship intake by more than a third across its BMW and Mini UK production network and retailer operations. 

The Mini plant in Oxford has 30 places available across finance, logistics, engineering and IT. Twelve apprenticeships will be on offer at the Hams Hall engine plant near Birmingham, while five places will be up for grabs at the pressings plant in Swindon.

The posts last up to four years and lead to a NVQ level three qualification.

For the 150 apprentices to be recruited to Mini and BMW retailers, the disciplines include service technician, parts advisor, motorcycle technician and body panel/paint.

Successful individuals would receive VRQ/VCQ qualifications from the Institute of the Motor Industry.

Skills minister Nick Boles said: "Apprentices make total business sense while giving people the chance of a high-quality and respected route into employment.

"That's why it's so encouraging to see firms like BMW leading the way in 2015 by committing to employ more apprentices."
