Arnold Clark is gearing up to recruit 300 new apprentices this summer in a broader range of roles.
The dealer group is looking apprenticeships in traditional motor trade roles such as technicians, spray painters, body repairers and parts advisors and also in roles such as IT, engineering, customer service and business administration.
All apprentices will receive training at an Arnold Clark site and some will attend a number of week-long visits at one of the Group’s GTG training centres.
After gaining their qualifications, apprentices have the opportunity to grow their skills further and develop their career within the Group.
Suzanne Sherry, apprentice recruitment manager at Arnold Clark said: “This year’s recruitment drive demonstrates our continued commitment to the apprenticeship scheme and to creating new jobs throughout the UK. It’s important for us to introduce a younger and more diverse workforce to the Arnold Clark team.
‘We know that there are still some gaps in understanding; from the age at which the apprenticeship journey can begin, to the benefits it can bring. Little by little, we hope to eradicate any misconceptions about apprenticeships, and to raise awareness of them as a viable and hugely rewarding career path.”
