Lookers Launches Recruitment Drive For 180 Apprentices

Car dealership Lookers has launched a recruitment drive for 180 new apprentices across the UK.

Lookers is recognised as a great place for young people to do an apprenticeship. It features in Centrica’s Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers list and is a winner of a regional Macro Apprentice Employer of the Year award.

Some of the apprenticeships on offer at Lookers include roles as body repairer technicians, customer service advisors, parts advisors and service technicians.

Speaking in North East England whilst launching the recruitment drive for young apprentices, Duncan McPhee, the Chief Retail Operations Officer for Lookers, said:

“Lookers is committed to apprenticeships as part of our continued investment to attract bright, young and ambitious talent into the business. We are delighted to offer 28 roles here in the North East, including Teesside Audi, as part of our national campaign to recruit 180 apprentices across the country, providing young people with the opportunity to build their confidence, skills and experience in a dynamic and continually evolving industry.”

“The Lookers Apprenticeship Programme has enabled Lookers to develop many high calibre, talented individuals, many of whom have gone on to receive industry and national recognition, but the investment also demonstrates our confidence and ambition for the future despite the difficult challenges of this year,” added Mr McPhee.

Offering her own perspective on life as an apprentice with Lookers, Jessica Brakenbury, said: “I’m really enjoying my apprenticeship. The level of support and training available has been brilliant and everyone in the Company has been really welcoming and supportive. Joining the Female Apprenticeship Network is a great opportunity to learn more about the future of the industry and inspire other young women apprentices.”

“This programme is an incredible opportunity to develop your skills and start your career in a fast-paced industry which is innovating every day and I would encourage everyone to apply,” added Ms Brakenbury.
