“For a car lover like me, the prestige of working for the world’s most luxurious car brand was a once in a lifetime opportunity. After studying a Business BTEC and unsure what to do next, I started looking online at apprentice schemes. I’d heard amazing things about the scheme from previous apprentices and decided to apply for Rolls-Royce. My first week at Rolls-Royce was quite an experience. I was blown away by the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood and how friendly and supportive everyone is. The opportunity to go through different placements within the Leathershop was a great opportunity to learn something new every day. The experience of working with the finest quality materials and textiles was a great draw for me. The materials used at Rolls-Royce are unlike anything I have seen before. The apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce has taught me lessons such as how to be independent, working in a team and improving my confidence. The support from management has been key in this, they have always been there to help me. I’m looking forward to continuing to develop my skills in a variety of locations in the Leathershop and expanding my knowledge.”

“I came across the apprenticeship in maintenance engineering when I was looking at different opportunities after school. The apprenticeship stood out most to me, because it offers qualifications and workplace experience which directly relates to the job type that I want. I found the apprenticeship really good because I was able to get training and qualifications while getting experience, and also practice skills I was learning by rotating around the departments. After my apprenticeship I was offered a machine technician job on shift in assembly maintenance, which is where I spent my final year. Nine months on and I’ve moved into a maintenance associate job. I’m now learning the skills needed for all the different areas within assembly maintenance. The apprenticeship helped me get to this position by giving me the training and skills to develop.”
