This summer 270 new apprentices will be given the opportunity to join the Arnold Clark Group.
The apprenticeship programme offers anyone aged 16–19 years old the opportunity to learn skills and gain a recognised qualification in the motor industry.
Suzanne Sherry, the dealer group’s apprentice recruitment manager, said: “As Scotland’s largest privately owned company, this move demonstrates our continued commitment to the apprenticeship scheme and to creating new jobs for Scotland and the UK.
“We are very keen to introduce a younger workforce to the Arnold Clark family of already over 11,000 staff.’
The apprentices will receive both on-the-job training at an Arnold Clark branch, as well as attend a number of weeklong training blocks at one of Arnold Clark’s GTG training centres.
Each apprentice is assigned a mentor who guides them through the three-year training programme.
