Your Career Development

As a Rolls-Royce Apprentice in the Interior Surface Centre, you will gain an appreciation of the many wood, lacquer and other technical finishes we apply to meet the ever growing portfolio of interior surface options available to our Customers. Coupled with on-the-job training and 2 days a week studying at Chichester College, you’ll learn from some of the finest craftspeople in the business and apply your skills to work on a number of projects.

This program will give you an in-depth introduction to the full range of operations / processes involved in production of interior surface components from selecting materials, applying finishes and assembly ready for fitting in to a new Customer car.

You'll spend three years developing your skills by working your way around the departments, as well as earning a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Modern Manufacturing from Chichester College.

Your final year will be in a specific area of expertise in preparation for your post-apprenticeship role. So all in all, this opportunity gives you hands-on work experience with one of the most prestige automotive brands, plus a Level 3 qualification: the perfect combination.

And this is just the start of your journey with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. An apprenticeship can offer many career options and enable you to make the most of your potential.
