Arnold Clark announces 300 new apprenticeships

Arnold Clark apprentices

Arnold Clark is opening its doors to 300 new apprentices, this summer, across a variety of roles.

Positions cover a vast array of motor trade roles such as technicians, spray painters, body repairers and parts advisors. There are also opportunities for apprentices in roles such as IT, engineering, customer service and business admin.

The apprenticeship programme is open to anyone over the age of 16 and provides a recognised qualification and a chance of a career within the dealer group.

Suzanne Sherry, apprentice recruitment manager at Arnold Clark, said: “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.”

Training is carried out at an Arnold Clark site and some will also 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. 

Candidates should have, or should be currently studying for, Standard Grades (1–4), National Grade (4/5) or GSCE (A–C) in subjects relating to the apprenticeship.

The deadline for applications is March 9 2018. Further information is available here.
