Saltire Motorcycles Apprentice Opportunity

We will be recruiting for our next Workshop apprentice to be starting in March 2017.

Targeting 16-19-year-olds, the Suzuki Advanced Apprenticeship Programme provides apprentices with the skills and knowledge required to work as technicians in the motorcycle industry.

Successful applicants to Suzuki’s Advanced Apprenticeship Programme can enrol on a three-year course, and will split their time between learning at Suzuki’s state-of-the-art training centre in Doncaster, and working within the workshop at Saltire Motorcycles.

Apprentices will study modules that cover subjects from basic servicing to diagnostics and suspension setup, and at the end of the course they will graduate with a government-recognised qualification.

Suzuki GB’s Aftersales Training Manager, Richard O’Brien, said: “We launched our Apprenticeship Programme back in 2003, and since then it has helped countless young people achieve a national qualification and also get into work with Suzuki dealerships up and down the country. The apprentices are able to develop their skills while also earning a wage through their work at the dealerships, and after graduation go on to forge successful careers in those dealerships, supporting the wider motorcycle industry. The motorcycle industry plays a big part in our economy, and it’s important not only to demonstrate to young people that you can have a successful career in it, but also to help sustain it by passing on the skills to the next generation.”
