The Rio Ferdinand Foundation (RFF) works to provide a pathway for youth development by inspiring young people and providing the tools they need to tap into their natural talents and reach their potential. For the next three years, the RFF will select one person per year to join the Aston Martin Apprenticeship Programme.

Rio says, “I have always been a fan of Aston Martin so it’s an honour for me to become a Brand Ambassador, but it is even more of an honour to be able to use the association to help the RFF inspire the next generation.”

Earlier this month, 30 new Apprentices started work at the Aston Martin Headquarters in Gaydon, hoping to follow in the footsteps of their alumni, many of whom have gone onto fantastic careers within Aston Martin and the wider automotive industry. Apprentices are given a full grounding across a range of Aston Martin’s business areas including Manufacturing, CAD Engineering and Design, learning all the time from expert engineers and technicians.

Dan Balmer, President of Aston Martin Lagonda UK & South Africa said: “We’re delighted to welcome Rio as an Aston Martin Brand Ambassador and look forward to working with the Rio Ferdinand Foundation. Both Aston Martin and the RFF realise the importance of investing in people and I’m excited to see how the young people put forward by the RFF develop within Aston Martin.”
