Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) is giving back to the local community by joining forces with Riverside College and launching its first ever apprentice scheme from its Liverpool headquarters – further demonstrating its devotion to the region.
BAC is the manufacturer of the Mono, the world’s only road-legal, single-seater supercar, and is incredibly proud of its British heritage. As such, 98% of its supply chain is based in Britain and 45% of the bill of materials sourced within Liverpool and the North West region.
And now, after achieving remarkable success around the globe, BAC has employed two talented apprentices from Riverside College to play a fundamental role in operations in the workshop.
Four impressive motorsport students made it through to the final stage of the apprenticeship programme and headed to BAC HQ to showcase their skills to staff.
Having been hand-picked by Riverside College Programme Area Leader, Pre Advanced Engineering & Motorsport, Andy James, the candidates more than proved their worth during their time in the workshop, and two candidates were successfully selected to be employed as apprentices with BAC.
One of the apprentices will now specialise in bodywork, while the other will work on sub-assembly and chassis dress and play a big part in BAC’s worldwide success going forward.
BAC Co-Founder and Director of Product Development, Neill Briggs, said: “We are incredibly proud of our Liverpool roots and are always trying to give back to the community – whether it be taking the Mono around the city for the public to enjoy or showing dedication to British suppliers. We’re very excited to take on our two newest recruits and give back to Riverside College and the local community even more. All four of our candidates showed fantastic skills during their three-day trials at BAC HQ, and it’s only fitting that we’ve employed two students during National Apprenticeship Week.”
