BMW are recruiting!
BMW Group is recruiting 150 apprentices in 2015 to work in BMW and Mini dealerships.
The intake is a third more than last year as the group expands its UK operations.
On offer are programmes for service technicians, parts advisors, motorcycle technicians and body shop.
All apprentices complete the three-year Advanced Apprenticeship at Level 3, the Parts Advisor programme is two years, and individuals receive VRQ/VCQ qualifications from the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI).
Most training is carried out at the BMW Group Academy training centre near Reading. The body shop training is carried out at a facility in Milton Keynes.
Graeme Grieve, chief executive Officer of BMW Group UK, said: “Bringing new talent into our retailers is vital to ensure we provide the best possible service for our customers and I am delighted that we will welcome 150 new apprentices to our award-winning scheme in the UK.”
In its MINI UK production network, the business is looking for 47 new apprentices to take up places in August 2015.
