JARDINE Motors Group has launched an innovative apprenticeship scheme for people looking to embark on a career as a technician.
The apprentice scheme is the latest recruitment drive from the group, which is one of the UK’s largest car dealership networks, representing 23 brands in more than 70 locations, and has more than 3,000 employees.
Those joining the scheme will not only be able to develop their skills on premium car brands, including Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, McLaren and Maserati, but they’ll also be given a toolkit worth £10,000.
In addition, apprentices will have a competitive starting salary that will increase each year, guaranteed for six years, and be part of a bonus scheme.
Group HR director Clare Martin, pictured, said: ‘The car industry is constantly evolving, which is why at Jardine Motors we are passionate about investing in future colleagues who want to join us in being part of a very exciting industry.
‘To us, that means recruiting bright and enthusiastic individuals who want to provide our customers with an outstanding customer experience.
‘We also recognise that the UK automotive industry is only as strong as the talent within it, so we must continue to invest in our teams if we want to reach our full potential, which is why our apprenticeship scheme also breaks the boundaries set out by traditional schemes.
‘Each new colleague can set the duration of their apprenticeship, allowing them to work at a pace to suit them, and will also be equipped with a toolkit worth £10,000, which they get to keep following successful completion of their apprenticeship course. All we ask is for individuals with passion, enthusiasm and a willingness to succeed.’
