West Way Nissan Apprentices begin motor industry career

November 20, 2015


Nissan’s biggest dealer group, West Way Nissan, has welcomed its salesmen and women of the future after launching a nationwide search for apprentices.

For the first time, the award-winning company has worked with national training provider, Retail Motor Industry Training (Remit), to recruit apprentices across its showrooms.

The chosen candidates will now work towards achieving a nationally recognised qualification while receiving an attractive remuneration package and fantastic job benefits.

The new apprentices recently met for the first time as they underwent training before starting at their respective dealerships.

Andy Buswell, HR Manager for West Way Nissan, said: “This is a great opportunity for these young people who have a dream of building a long career in the motor industry. Competition for an apprenticeship place at West Way Nissan was tough so they have already achieved a great deal by being accepted onto the programme.

“We were looking for enthusiastic and passionate young individuals with an appetite to grow and develop – and these are the qualities they all demonstrated. We want to help them reach their potential and achieve their ambitions. With a can-do attitude and the support of West Way Nissan’s nationally-recognised brand, we can help these apprentices build a successful career.”

The new recruits will work alongside qualified car sales executives to learn about the vehicles they are selling, develop sales techniques and enhance their customer service skills to enable them to provide outstanding service.

Each West Way Nissan dealership – in Aldershot, Altrincham, Basingstoke, Birmingham, Coventry, Hanwell, Manchester, Mill Hill, Oldham, Oxford, Rochdale, Southampton, Stockport, Stourbridge, and Wolverhampton –­ has taken on an apprentice.

Clare Green, Client Services and Marketing Director at Remit, said: “We were delighted to work with West Way Nissan to deliver its apprenticeship programme and help find the right candidates that can grow with the group.”
