Parts Advisor Apprenticeships

Are you good at multitasking?

A team player who likes to get stuck in?

Do you enjoy helping customers and giving advice?

Then a role as an Apprentice Parts Advisor could be just the job for you. When you think of a Parts Department you may just think of over the counter sales of accessories and parts to customers wanting say car mats or roof rails, but this is just a tiny part of what the Parts team does.

They not only service individual retail customers but also small and large repairers, bodyshops and accident repair centres. In the dealership they are responsible for keeping the Technicians in the workshop supplied with all the parts they need to complete services, repairs and maintenance on customer and fleet vehicles.

Molly Ellis, an Apprentice Parts Advisor at Stafford Land Rover, told us what the role is like, day to day;

“I was doing a food science and technology course at college, but decided it really wasn’t for me; to be honest I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, so I went on a “Not going to Uni” website for some inspiration. The Parts Advisor apprenticeship role was advertised on there, I applied and the rest is history as they say”!

“It may sound very corny but I love my job, I look forward to coming into work and I’m part of a really great team. We’re all different, but we get on so well together and work as team to make sure we get everything done”.

“I go away to study a week at a time, but I feel I’ve gained so much experience in my day to day work and that’s the part I really value”.

“For me this has been the right move, the best choice I’ve made and I’d say give an apprenticeship a go, you may, like me, just find the perfect job for.
