Bristol Street Motors Ford Bromley is offering talented young people the chance to gain a degree while earning a base salary of £18,000 after creating one of the first motor retail industry’s degree-level apprenticeships in a brand new trailblazing scheme.

In partnership with Northumbria University, Vertu Motors plc, the UK’s sixth largest motor retailer, which owns Bristol Street Motors, has created a unique apprenticeship pathway and will pay £27,000-worth of tuition fees so that the apprentices leave University debt-free.

Bristol Street Motors Ford Bromley and 11 other locations across the UK are searching for passionate, determined and hard-working future leaders to join the Vertu Motors team, with the prospect of quickly progressing into managerial roles.

Successful applicants will work towards a BA degree in Business Leadership & Management Practice, while also earning a salary of £18,000 as a Customer Service Advisor and gaining invaluable experience in the workplace, as well as supplementary in-house training.

In addition to receiving a BA Honours degree, the programme of study will also offer the opportunity to achieve ‘Chartered Manager’ status from Northumbria University, one of the top 50 universities in the UK.

Enthusiastic, ambitious school leavers will be given the opportunity to gain a respected degree debt-free and to forge a career with one of the most successful businesses in the UK.

Robert Forrester, chief executive of Vertu Motors plc, said: “We’re very proud of our new programme, it’s the first apprenticeship of its kind in the motor retail sector and an amazing opportunity for enthusiastic school leavers across the country.

“We are always on the look-out for talented individuals who can help drive our business forward, and this programme will allow us to identify those school leavers and help them develop into the business leaders of the future.”
