Evie Spencer Parts Apprentice

Parts Advisor Apprenticeships

Is a Parts Advisor Apprenticeship right for you?

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, body shops 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.

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

“I spent lots of time in different departments learning about the business and seeing how everyone works together. This helped me to understand how my role in the parts department supported different areas of the business. My days often consist of helping customers and supporting the service team to ensure a smooth running of the workshop.”

“Swansway were really supportive throughout the apprenticeship, they organised training days away from the dealership which helped me to learn and their support kept me going through harder areas of the apprenticeship.”

“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.”

Recently Evie’s hard work finally paid off as she passed her apprenticeship, a moment she described as a great feeling of relief and pride.

Since completing the apprenticeship Evie has been passing her knowledge onto the new Apprentices at Stafford Land Rover helping them with to grow within her previous role.
