Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

AU­TO­MO­TIVE RE­TAILER Pen­dragon is to launch a new ac­cel­er­a­tor pro­gramme for trainee ve­hi­cle tech­ni­cians, with an in­take in Leeds.

Trainees on the pro­gramme will work for top Evans Hal­shaw deal­er­ships, learn­ing from ex­pe­ri­enced col­leagues.

Aimed at those fresh out of col­lege or about to fin­ish an ap­pren­tice­ship, with a rel­e­vant for­mal qual­i­fi­ca­tion, the pro­gramme will take newly-qual­i­fied or semi­skilled tech­ni­cians on an ac­cel­er­ated pro­gramme to help jump­start their ca­reer.

An­drew Wag­got, af­ter­sales di­rec­tor at Pen­dragon, said: “We are ex­cited to be launch­ing our Tech­ni­cian Ac­cel­er­a­tor pro­gramme in Leeds.

“This new scheme is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for ju­nior tech­ni­cians to fast for­ward their ca­reer.

“They will have the op­por­tu­nity to learn from ex­pe­ri­enced team mem­bers in a fast-paced en­vi­ron­ment and be able to build on their skills and knowl­edge to get a head start in their ca­reers.

“Tech­ni­cians are a key part of the af­ter­sales func­tion, en­sur­ing cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion and the very best in qual­ity.

“The pro­gramme is a first for us, and will al­low us to re­cruit and re­tain the most tal­ented tech­ni­cians.”
