• Apprentice Technician (Renault) - Morpeth

    We currently have a vacancy for an Apprentice Vehicle Technician at our Morpeth dealership.  The successful candidate will be enrolled on a 3 year Renault Apprenticeship Programme and training will involve structured block release at Renault's state-of-the-art Training Centre which is equipped with all the latest diagnostic equipment, tools and apparatus to simulate a real working environment.  All training will run alongside practical work experience within Blackshaws' Morpeth workshop where our Apprentice will be under the guidance of a Senior Technician who will act as a mentor.  At the end of the 3 year period it is expected that full Renault Technician accreditation will be achieved equivalent to NVQ Level 3 in Maintenance and Repair of Light Vehicles.

    This is an excellent opportunity for a school leaver who is interested in pursuing a career as a Vehicle Technician within the motor industry.  In addition to a structured programme of learning within a team environment, the programme is also designed to improve communication skills and enhance personal development.  Although a permanent position at Blackshaws can't be guaranteed at the end of the apprenticeship it is hoped that an opening within the business will be found after the 3 year training programme has been completed.

    Any interested applicants should have 5 GCSEs at grades 5 to 9 and should send or email their CV and a covering letter to Adam Scott (Morpeth Workshop Controller) by 31st October 2021 [email protected]

    The Apprenticeship will commence in Autumn 2021.
