Additional questions for candidates
During the application process you will be asked the following additional question(s) below. To prepare yourself, have a think about how you might answer them.
Why do you want to work for this sector and for Ferrari?
What experience, qualifications or achievements do you have that you feel are relevant to the role?
Did you know that Maranello Parts now has the exclusive global distribution rights for all factory-made parts for any pre-1995 Ferrari road car. That means that we have now expanded our stock holding to include spare parts for the 348 and Testarossa. So if you buy a genuine Ferrari part – and why would anyone want to buy remanufactured parts with no assurance of them being fit for purpose? – anywhere in the world, it will have come to you via Maranello Parts in Egham. So why buy from anywhere else when you can buy direct from the source?
