Bentley MotorsUK – The manufacturer announced that 42 places are available for its 2016 intake, starting this September. Twenty of them will join the recently developed manufacturing apprenticeship programme, designed and delivered by Bentley Master Trainers.

“As our business continues to grow, we continue to invest – in our people, our products and our network,” said Marlies Rogait, member of the board for Human Resources. “We want to attract extraordinary candidates – the Bentley experts of tomorrow – who aren’t afraid to challenge and can add to our highly-skilled and passionate workforce.”

Bentley has been running an apprenticeship scheme for more than 40 years, and has created 100 opportunities in the past two years. The 20 individuals who gain a place on the manufacturing programme will develop skills in leather, wood, paint, mechatronics and production maintenance. The other 22 recruits will be based at the headquarters in Crewe, working in Engineering, Sales and Marketing, Purchasing and Human Resources.

The vehicle-maker is holding an apprenticeship open day on March 12, when this year’s scheme launches. Applications can be made in the following six weeks via
