Luxury sports car brand Aston Martin is searching for the very best of tomorrow’s automotive design talent as it is recruiting two clay sculpting apprentices for its Gaydon site.
The apprenticeships on offer present the opportunity to enter the Aston Martin design department and help shape the future of the British brand.
Would-be clay sculptors are invited to apply for a four-year apprenticeship programme that begins in January 2015.
The aim of the scheme is to offer individuals the chance to develop the practical skills required to mould forthcoming generations of the sports cars, with the opportunity to progress to a higher apprenticeship.
Design director Marek Reichman said: “Clay sculpting remains an integral part of our design process and is vital in helping the design team visualise future models.
“We’re looking for creative young people with a keen interest in the motor industry and a passion for all things Aston Martin. This is an incredible opportunity for talented and ambitious individuals to join one of the world’s most respected automotive design teams and work on new cars that, I’m sure, will be admired around the world.”
Qualification requirements for applicants include five GCSEs at grade C and above. These must include maths, English, science and a related subject such as art.
By the end of the programme the apprentices will be able to take a design from initial concept to an accurate full-size model of the final car for both the exterior and interior.
The company is aiming to add the two new apprentices to the 12 already recruited across the business and due to start work next month.
