Farnell Dealerships On Hunt For Apprentices
Farnell Jaguar Land Rover, part of Vertu Motors plc, is recruiting 27 apprentices across its six retailers.
The sites in Bradford, Leeds, Guiseley, Bolton, Nelson and Chesterfield are looking for talented individuals to train as technicians, service advisors and parts advisors.
Training is delivered through a successful combination of on-the-job and classroom-based training centred on five regionalised state-of-the-art Jaguar Land Rover Training Academies.
New apprentices are also enrolled onto the Jaguar Land Rover Learner Management System to guide them through their short-, medium- and long-term career paths.
Already started on his apprenticeship at Farnell Nelson is 18-year-old Adam Johnston. Adam said: “I have always been interested in vehicle mechanics and Land Rover as a brand, so I seized the opportunity when it came up.
“Farnell Nelson is a great place to work. Everyone is super helpful and have helped me settle in and answered all my questions. My manager is always on hand to support me and finds time for me every day. I’ve definitely made the right decision!”
Matthew Timmons, divisional aftersales director at Vertu Motors plc, said: “This is an amazing prospect for a significant number of young people like Adam in the motor industry.
“The Jaguar Land Rover training academy is second to none and the opportunity to learn from Farnell’s experienced professionals will ensure the best possible start to a career path that offers many opportunities.
“We have already identified four exceptional candidates who have joined the team and very much look forward to filling these coveted roles.”
