STUDENTS dreaming to work in a racing competition are in luck as the famous Williams F1 team in Oxfordshire is advertising for apprentices.

One of the most successful teams in Formula One history that is based in Grove revealed it is searching for an apprentice with a passion for engineering.

The role of apprentice pattern shop machinist/ programmer will involve three disciplines, which are basic pattern making, machining and programming.

The four-year apprenticeship is also an opportunity to see how the new owners of Williams F1 will take the team 'to the next level'.

The Formula 1 team was sold to American investment firm, Dorilton Capital, in August after losing £13m in profits last year.

Sir Frank Williams and his daughter Claire also left their roles at the Williams team in an 'emotional' move that marked the end of an era.

The company is interested in applicants from a variety of backgrounds, who are committed to pursuing vocational qualifications in engineering.

The lucky candidate will attend Oxfordshire Advanced Skills in Culham where they will graduate as an engineering technician.

They can apply by Monday via the careers page at the Williams F1 website.
