To encourage applications from a broad range of 18-24 year old candidates, with diverse skills, these iconic brands have partnered with a number of organisations, charities and academies to promote the scholarship including Access Aspiration, Brixton Finishing School, Lecture in Progress, The Dots and BYP Network.
"BMW has a long history of fostering emerging talent and driving inclusivity across all aspects of our business – from marketing disciplines to automotive design, bringing young people into fulfilling engineering and technology careers including our game changing “Girls Go Technical” work experience programme,” says Michelle Roberts. “Our ambition is to attract a much broader range of people to the automotive industry and this scholarship is another step on our journey to delivering this”.
British Vogue and BMW will coach and develop the successful candidate by providing mentors, projects to collaboratively work on, training to develop their true potential and introductions to key departments across both businesses.
A POSITIVE FUTURE.
The BMW UK/ British Vogue Scholarship Programme is part of British Vogue’s ‘Forces For Change’ initiative, which focuses on celebrating the people, organisations and ideas deemed to be forces of positive change. It aims to reach new audiences and celebrate the positive transformation as a result of important conversations around diversity and inclusivity.
Vanessa Kingori, Publishing Director of British Vogue says, “Our aim is to initiate new paths for potential future leaders… The ideal applicants will be interested in fields aligned to Marketing, Communications, Advertising and Media. We are looking for candidates who will work hard and harness this unique opportunity to transform their futures and become potential forces for change."
