Applications are open between 11th March – 8th April 2024. Download our Application Form and submit it to the vacancy you would like to apply for.

For this year’s submission, we would like you to include a Small Project for us to review. The Project could be a selection of photos you have taken of a car project you have been working on, a 500-word essay, a video of you presenting, or even a PowerPoint presentation. You can choose the format!

In the project, we would like you to show us something you are passionate about. It could be a brand we represent, a specific car you love, or even a project you have been working on that you want to tell us about. We want to get to know the ‘you’ behind your CV, and find out what makes you excited about joining the automotive industry as an Apprentice.

If you are selected to progress to the next stage of the process, you will be invited to join us for a Group Interview. The Group Interviews are planned for the weeks commencing the 22nd April to Friday 3rd May. You can read more about what to expect from a group interview ahead of this stage of the process by clicking here.

Extended interviews are planned for the week commencing 13th May. Successful candidates from the group interviews will be invited to join us for a more in-depth look at their chosen environment. During this time, you will get a chance to experience what it would be like to come to work with us as an Apprentice. You will spend time in the environment you will be working in, meet the whole team, see the facilities, and the day-to-day life of an Apprentice.

Offers to our selected Apprentices will be made in June and July. The anticipated start date is September depending on candidate availability, enrolment onto the official brand programme, and results. You will need to have 4 GCSE Grades at Level 4 or above to join us as an Apprentice.

Please note that these dates are an outline only and are subject to change during the process. We will keep candidates informed as to the next stage of the process in relation to their application.

We will always let you know the outcome of your Apprentice application. Due to the high volume of Apprenticeship applications we receive, until you have joined us for a face-to-face interview, we will not be able to provide specific feedback on your application.
