Bristol Street Motors Ford is on the look-out for school leavers

A Ford car dealership in Bromley is offering young people the chance to gain a degree while earning through an apprenticeship scheme.

In partnership with Northumbria University, Bristol Street Motors Ford has created the pathway and will pay £27,000-worth of tuition fees, plus a £18,000 basic salary, via the scheme.

The dealership is one of 12 locations across the UK searching for potential students.

Successful applicants will work towards a BS degree in Business Leadership and Management Practice, while working as a customer service advisor.

In addition to the degree, the programme of study will also offer the opportunity to achieve ‘chartered manager’ status from Nortumbria University.

Robert Forrester, chief executive of Vertu Motors plc - who own the Bromley dealership, said: “We’re very proud of our new programme, it’s the first apprenticeship of its kind in the motor retail sector and an amazing opportunity for enthusiastic school leavers across the country.

“We are always on the look-out for talented individuals who can help drive our business forward, and this programme will allow us to identify those school leavers and help them develop into the business leaders of the future.”
