Owen, a toolmaker technician apprentice at BMW smiling at the camera

I’m driven to develop my career.

I’m really passionate about cars and so to work for what I consider to be the best car manufacturer in the UK makes me really happy. The setup and machinery is so impressive and academically and practically, I’m exposed to so much. Every day is different, with something new to learn or a new problem to solve.

We’re a close-knit team and there’s a real sense of passion and achievement that we share -we all enjoy rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck in. Last year I had the opportunity to spend six weeks at a Plant in Germany. It was amazing. I made new friends, built my network and learnt a lot of new skills too. I also got to sample the German culture and learn a bit of the language. I really enjoyed it and I came back feeling more confident. I know my future at BMW Group has a clear career path. There are lots of branches and other opportunities open to me that I know I can explore. I’m going further than I ever imagined.
