If you’re looking for a brand new and exciting opportunity on your career journey, and have a keen interest in engineering or the automotive industry, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) are looking to start 140 apprenticeships in September 2014.

From design and product development, to finance, modeling and maintenance, the JLR apprenticeships scheme could open a host of new doors and qualifications, all while working on some of the world’s most well known vehicles.

With the deadline for applications closing on January 31st, JLR, in conjunction with Solihull Council, will be hosting an information session for would-be applicants and their parents on Thursday January 16, from 4.30 - 6.00pm, at The Studio, Solihull Central Library.

Current apprentices and JLR colleagues will be on hand to share information on how the recruitment process works, offering advice about what to put in the application, as well as answering any questions about the programme.

The apprenticeship scheme is split across two levels, advanced and higher, with different trades and training available in each. Advanced apprentices can typically earn £210 a week, increasing to around £400 at the end of the training. For those on the higher scheme, an annual salary starts at £16,000, increasing to approximately £32,000 should applicants meet all the expectations.

The Advanced Scheme is designed for those who have completed GCSEs or achieved 60+ credits at BTEC Level 3, and runs for three to four years. The Higher Scheme runs for six years, and is appropriate for those who have completed A-Levels or have 90+ credits at BTEC Level 3.

Jlr AutomationSolihull Councill will also be on hand at the Library session to share what opportunities and support they have available for young people in the borough.

Cllr Ian Courts, cabinet member for Economic Development at Solihull Council, said: “This is a great opportunity for young people and their parents to find out what it’s like to be an apprentice at Jaguar land rover and the fantastic career prospects that an apprenticeship can offer. I would encourage anyone with an interest in engineering and automotive apprenticeships to come along and find out more.”
