Robert Forrester, Chief Executive of Vertu Motors PLC, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Anthea has taken the time to come and visit the dealership. It’s a great example of how a Worcester business is investing in the town and supporting people in the area in jobs.
“As a company, investing in our colleagues through career development and training is extremely important, as demonstrated by the creation of two new apprenticeships at the dealership. Jordan and William are both talented, hard-working young men who have made a fantastic start to their careers and we hope to support them through their training and beyond.”
Anthea McIntyre said: “Bristol Street Motors are showing that investing in modern facilities and, more importantly, skills’ training, is the way forward for modern businesses. I am delighted to have visited the Worcester dealership and to have met the new apprentices.”
