Bentley is looking to to employ up to 60 new people throughout its ranks.
Bentley has been named ‘Top Employer’ this year, thanks to its focus on training.
The successful marque is building on its reputation as a Top Employer for five consecutive years with the announcement of no fewer than 60 new vacancies.
Bentley’s Top Employer accolade is for its future talent and skills development programmes, an area it is continuing to build on with a huge recruitment drive this year.
The 60 vacancies – ranging from apprentice level to graduate level – cover sales and marketing, human resources, finance and purchasing, as well as the more traditional and hands-on engineering and manufacturing roles.
Marlies Rogait, a member of the Board for Human Resources at Bentley, said: ‘Each of our schemes offer a solid foundation upon which to build the skills and knowledge required to become experts and professionals in their chosen field.
‘We continue to demonstrate our commitment to future talent by recruiting in significant numbers and 2017 is no exception. We are looking to attract extraordinary candidates – Bentley experts of tomorrow – who can add to our already highly-skilled and passionate workforce.’
Bentley’s apprenticeship programme, with 22 positions available, offers an invaluable way of gaining recognised qualifications while undertaking key training at Bentley, for three or four years, dependent on which area the apprentice is working in.
The majority of apprentices will be undertaking the manufacturing programme, learning skills within areas such as wood, paint and mechatronics. The first year of their programme will include theoretical learning at South Cheshire College, before working in practical areas of manufacturing at Bentley.
The graduate scheme, offering 13 vacancies, is a two-year development programme where recruits are given the opportunity to work on business projects, working in a specific department, or across a number of functions.
The undergraduate scheme, of which there are 25 places, is a 12-month development programme focused on undergraduate degree students looking to complete a year out in industry as part of their studies.
