The application period for the apprenticeship positions at the locations starts in July and started in May for the dual study programs. The BMW Group offers young talents a variety of employment prospects in exciting future skills under the roof of a reliable and attractive employer.
“Young talent plays a key role at the BMW Group. With them we are shaping the digital, electric and sustainable mobility of the future. Our junior staff learn in a practical way, in flexible working environments and diverse teams. Right from the start, they have the opportunity to think outside the box, to develop projects and to contribute their individual strengths,” says Ilka Horstmeier, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Human Resources and Real Estate, Labor Director.
Assuming social responsibility and offering young people prospects in the form of vocational training is part of the BMW Group’s self-image. That is why the number of places in training and dual courses of study throughout Germany will remain constant at 1,200 in the 2023 training year, despite volatile conditions. With the comprehensive training program, the BMW Group also secures its own junior staff. Because the transition to electromobility and the need for innovative mobility solutions require highly qualified specialists. At 19 BMW Group training locations and 20 branches around the world, young people prepare for their future fields of activity in around 30 apprenticeships and 20 dual courses of study.
The BMW Group qualifies trainees in the areas of technology & production, IT and business administration & service. In addition to the classic technical apprenticeships for mechatronics or production mechanics, the future topics of electrification, automation technology and digitization as well as sustainability have also created completely new job profiles, such as the job of IT specialist for data and process analysis. The dual course of study in sustainability and environmental management in combination with the clerk for digitization management is also a novelty. Young professionals in the field of electronics for automation technology or IT system electronics are currently particularly in demand. The training is constantly being developed in all professional fields.
Learning has to be fun and inspiring. This is why trainees at the BMW Group can acquire knowledge and skills via a wide variety of learning formats. For example, virtual reality glasses or 3D printing technologies are used to make the learning material tangible. In order to train creativity and innovative strength, the junior staff act in interdisciplinary teams from the very beginning. In the “Talent Factory” at the Munich location, for example, young people develop practical and independent products and services for internal and external customers in their first year of training, just like a start-up.
The Circular Economy Challenge also generates enthusiasm. The future junior employees experience and shape sustainability and the circular economy together: They develop a concept for a circular product in which raw materials can be reused for as long as possible and which fits into the entire value chain of the BMW Group. Such learning content is in line with the company’s sustainability goals and promotes entrepreneurial thinking among the next generation. On top of that, the team spirit is strengthened and there is no shortage of fun.
