It is only with the most highly trained new recruits that we can safeguard our excellent quality standards in the long term,” said Dieter Esser, head of vocational training.Those in highest demand are industrial mechanics that can be turned into car manufacturers, but Porsche is also after those with technology skills. Porsche also says that it wants high-school graduates who are willing to work abroad for an extended period of time after completing the apprenticeship, to set up service centres in the growth markets of Russia or China.“At Porsche, grades are not the be all and end all,” said Esser. “We want young people who have petrol in their veins, team spirit, and technical aptitude.”If you’d like to apply, and we know we would, visit www.porsche.com.
