Get your early career moving when you leave school
The Automotive Industry has a wide range of Apprenticeships available and it’s currently developing Traineeships to help you get ahead as soon as you like in life.
Apprenticeships include those working with repairing vehicles, providing customer service or administrative roles as well as parts and vehicle damage assessment. Behind the wheel, under the chassis, in the office, out in the field… it’s up to you.
From local work experience to global horizons
Automotive industry employers offer work experience through Schools & Colleges as well as providing weekend/holiday work for young people, to help give you a taste of what’s out there.
Maybe you want to live and work in the UK. Maybe you want to spread your wings and fly further afield. Either way, it’s fine – lots of early career opportunities in the UK can lead to you working in the global market, if that excites you.
