BMW is hiring young unemployed Spaniards to ‘give something back’ to its customer countries.
A group of 25 workers aged 18 to 25 will be trained for a year at the car firm’s headquarters in Munich, Germany.
“They should be immersed in German culture, possibly live with a BMW host family and work in development, sales, marketing or another area. After that, these young people can go back home or stay here,” said BMW personnel chief, Milagros Caina-Andree.
“We want to give something back to these countries, in which we sell our cars, after all,” she added.
Caina-Andree, who joined BMW’s management board last year, said the programme may be expanded to other countries such as Italy or Greece in the future.
