Automotive management and leadership apprenticeship

Automotive management and leadership apprenticeship

Reliable transport keeps people, goods, services and the economy running smoothly. Across the Automotive Retail Sector, managers are needed to recruit and retain skilled staff, increase customer loyalty, and help businesses to remain competitive.

Managers and leaders work in sales, after-sales, vehicle parts, fleet control, vehicle body and repair workshops, and vehicle maintenance and repair workshops.

If you are interested in managing and motivating staff, enjoy devising strategies and are keen to manage budgets as well as being responsible for a team of people, the Automotive Management and Leadership apprenticeship could be for you.

Experience of working in a managerial role will help and you will need to have a good head for numbers as you will be responsible for devising budgets, ensuring sales targets are met and controlling costs and stock levels. Good interpersonal skills are important too – you will be liaising with customers, advising them on technical issues and dealing with customer complaints.
