Motofix Group have created what they believe to be a totally unique traineeship for their vehicle repair business – the Automotive Business Trainee

The group are recruiting motivated young people to join them as Automotive Business Trainees who will develop skills and knowledge in Parts, VDA and Customer Service.

“We looked at various apprenticeships, both in our industry and general ones, but couldn’t find anything that met our specific needs” explains Richard Tutt, Motofix Group Chairman. “We already invest in developing our teams technical skills through apprenticeships and further learning for qualified technicians but there was a gap for this particular type of role so we decided to create our own programme”

Motofix are looking for candidates across our nine locations to enter in to the two-year traineeship. The ideal candidate profile is someone possibly looking for their second job and shows a strong aptitude for business administration, customer service and information technology.

The Automotive Business Trainee will be empowered to create and book their own training journey, chosen from a pre-designed curriculum and using an up-front budget allocated by the business. Richard adds “We are looking for our trainees to demonstrate organisational and self-motivational skills as well as developing their technical and sales knowledge. Each candidate will be allocated a training budget to plot and book their own learning journey, using our existing training partners and the Thatcham Ecademy. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for our organisation and a great place for motivated young people to build a career at the business end of the vehicle repair industry”.
