Rolls-Royce Motor Cars welcomed this year's successful intake of apprentices and graduates to the company's headquarters and manufacturing plant at Goodwood. Eleven new apprentices and 13 graduates toured the home of Rolls-Royce Motor

Every Rolls-Royce is hand-built to exacting standards that customers expect. The highly-bespoke vocational skills and technical expertise that we require are best developed in the workplace, coupled with academic study and support from industry-leading professionals," said Frank Ludwig, Director of Manufacturing, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars .

"Our successful Apprenticeship and Graduate Programmes deliver future talent for Rolls-Royce and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the development and training of young people in the UK manufacturing industry," he further added.

Rolls-Royce has recruited more than 200 new permanent jobs in the last 18 months, with more than half based at the home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, primarily in the manufacturing areas. More than 1,500 people are now employed on site.
