Job Details

The role

Kwik Fit apprenticeships are the most sought-after in the sector. And it's not just us saying that - Ofsted have graded our apprenticeships as 'outstanding' in every area... you literally can't get better!

Based at one of our fully-equipped centres you'll slot into the team, working a regular 39 hour week with two consecutive days off. You'll pair up the best in the business to learn new auto care skills and all about the special brand of team-building and customer service that makes us everyday heroes in the communities we serve. To reinforce your new skills you'll have access to our online learning facility and make regular visits to our state-of-the-art learning centres where you'll be supported by dedicated technical training staff.

At the end of the 30-month program, you'll emerge a fully fledged Kwik Fit technician with a guaranteed role within the team that, by which time, you'll be a valued member of. If you're looking for an 'in' to start your career in auto care, you can't get better than a Kwik Fit Apprenticeship.

Key accountabilities

First and foremost, you're here to learn. Kwik Fit isn't a place for know-it-alls and you won't find any in our team - despite the fact that many of our technicians are some of the most knowledgeable in the business! Chipping in with day-to-day business at the centre, your main duty will be to learn from the expertise that surrounds you and apply it in your own work. And not just on the technical side. We want you to take onboard the things that make our team special - our attentive customer service and our unique team spirit. Making it as a Kwik Fit technician isn't easy, but with the right attitude and respect for the work we do here, you'll quickly find yourself on track for a great career.
Learning not just what we do by the particular way we do it at Kwik Fit is the key to success on our Apprenticeship.

Ideally, you will:
* Have a passion for cars and the auto care sector of the motor industry
* Be self-motivated and willing to take responsibility for your own learning and study
* Be a team player who will always go the extra mile for customers
* Have the focus and resilience to stick with a task even when things are not going to plan
* Be honest, punctual and reliable
* Be looking for a career, not just a job
* Have (ideally) grade A*-C or 4-9 (or equivalent) in GCSE English and Maths
Heard the one about hard work being its own reward? That's true here. Our centres aren't just places to work, they're places where people pull together and get the best from each other. And they're places where life-long friendships are made. We've got state of the art training academies, online learning and all the support you need to reach your full potential.

What's more, being the UK leader for tyres and auto care means you'll be part of the team that is shaping the future. We've been working in partnership with the Government to tweak innovations like digital MOTs and other to-be-revealed initiatives. Plus, we're constantly developing new resources, from state-of-the-art equipment, to help with the most modern of vehicles, like hybrids, to creating a market leading website and having partnerships with some of the best premium tyre and part brands on the planet.

That's what we mean by 'you can't get better
