A feature on Vittoria Cavarero, UK & Western Europe Communications at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

We recently caught up with Vittoria Cavarero, UK & Western Europe Communications at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars to hear more about her first role in automotive.

Vittoria studies International Business at The University of Liverpool, but we first met her back in 2019, at our Inspiring Automotive Women Day, at Volkswagen Group UK. Vittoria then came to talk at our conference in November 2019, at Auto Trader UK, with her F1 in Schools Team and she told us more about the impact that our Automotive 30% Club outreach activities had on her, at our Collaborating to Change The Game Conference in May 2022. Today, we hear more from Vittoria, as she tells us more about her automotive career so far.

Can you share with us how the Automotive 30% Club Outreach programmes helped to raise your awareness of careers in the automotive industry?

Being invited to attend several events and conferences was what truly enabled me to deepen my understanding of the industry. Not only was I given the chance to put myself forward in such stimulating environments, but I was also encouraged to network with several individuals from the sector and appreciate the details and wide variety of careers the automotive sector presents.

Congratulations on securing a role in UK and Western Europe Communications at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, can you tell us more about your role?

Thank you! As an intern in the Communications department, my main responsibilities include liaison with external stakeholders such as journalists, clients, influencers, and luxury publications. I am also involved in internal projects such as organising charity events and coordinating the internal intranet
of the company to communicate any news and updates to the whole workforce at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

What are you enjoying most about working in the automotive industry, so far?

Luxury automotive is an incredibly fascinating industry to work in. What I love the most about it is that it is extremely dynamic, and you can never get bored of it. So far, I have really enjoyed observing how different departments work, and realising how crucial teamwork is to achieve the ultimate goal. But what is most exciting for me now is the idea of contributing and being involved in the creation of revolutionary models that will reshape the future of luxury automotive.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in automotive?

Since my journey in the F1 in Schools competition, my passion for the automotive industry has grown, in particular for luxury automotive. Ever since then, it has been a dream of mine to be able to experience first-hand the dynamics of it and learn the phases behind the development of a car on all levels. Being involved in such a fast paced and constantly evolving sector is what truly intrigued me from the beginning!

What advice would you give to young people, like yourself, who are thinking of joining the automotive sector?

Get involved in events, conferences, online webinars and network with as many people from this sector as possible. What better way is there to gain a true understanding of what it really feels like to work in this industry other than speaking to those who are already in it? To all the young ladies, don’t limit yourself to any negative rumours you hear about gender imbalance, strive to be the change you want to see, and believe in yourself!
