Apprenticeships with Morgan Motor Company
The Morgan Motor Apprenticeship programme offers a range of traditional apprenticeships at their head office and factory in Malvern. Morgan is the only remaining family-owned and independent British car manufacturer with an unparalleled heritage and ethos of craftsmanship. Therefore, a Morgan Motor Apprenticeship is a very special opportunity for those interested in a rewarding career with the brand.
The iconic Morgan three-wheeler was the company’s first car, launched in 1909. A four-wheeled model began production in 1936 and the design is still recognisable even today. Morgan cars have always been famous for their unique blend of charisma, quality materials, craftsmanship and performance. The company’s respect for traditional craftsmanship remains consistent even in the 21st Century.
Morgan cars have always been coach-built to order. However, the cars are continually refined to meet the latest safety standards and to incorporate new technology. This ensures the company’s products continue to offer the responsive thoroughbred performance with which Morgan is associated. The company now hand-builds more than 1300 cars per year. Still based in the original home where the brand was born more than 100 years ago, the company now builds in excess of 1300 cars per year.
In 2000, Morgan Motor Company launched the innovative and distinctive Aero 8. Launching such a ground-breaking new car was a major achievement for such a small Company. Continual evolution of the Aero Range has seen the Aero 8 joined by the dramatic Aero SuperSports and its fixed-head sibling, the Aero Coupe. In 2011, Morgan re-launched the Morgan 3 Wheeler, a modern interpretation of H.F.S. Morgan’s classic design. In 2015, the company even revealed an all-electric concept of the three-wheeler in 2015. Morgan Motor Company now offers a fully road-legal production version that weighs less than 500kg and has a range of 150 miles.
Morgan’s ‘Classic’ range continues to be the mainstay of the product range, and the company’s flagship vehicle – with models including the 4/4, the world’s longest-running production vehicle, and engine sizes ranging from 1600cc to 4800cc, these famous icons are the models perhaps most associated with Morgan.
Morgan retains a highly skilled workforce of around 180 people, most of whom learnt their trade at the factory. The average length of service at the factory is an incredible 25 years. Consequently, employment opportunities are rare, and often only as a result of retirements. Therefore, a Morgan Motor Apprenticeship could be just the beginning of a lifelong career with this iconic brand.
