LSH Auto hosts apprenticeship evenings

LSH Auto is launching a recruitment drive to find its next generation of apprentices this week. On Wednesday and Thursday, the business will host two apprenticeship evenings as part of National Apprenticeship Week.

Young people interested in finding out more about becoming a Mercedes-Benz apprentice are invited to Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham on Wednesday 8th February and Mercedes-Benz of Stockport on Thursday 9th February at 5.30pm.

Becky Pitt, Talent Acquisition Specialist at LSH Auto, said: “We’re looking forward to recruiting as many apprentices as possible to join us in September 2023 and would urge anybody considering a career in the automotive industry to come along to one of our events this week. Our apprenticeship evenings provide the perfect opportunity to meet some of our existing apprentices and colleagues and chat to them to get a real insight into the various roles that are available. Visitors will also have a ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour of our state-of-the art facilities to see where they could be working.

“Becoming an apprentice is a great way to earn money and a qualification whilst gaining invaluable real-life experience of the career you’re interested in. We currently have 65 apprentices working at our Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Birmingham, Solihull, Tamworth, Stockport, Macclesfield and Whitefield. We offer three courses, all with NVQ Level 3 qualifications as Apprentice Customer Experience Partners, Apprentice Parts Specialists and Apprentice Technicians.”

Anybody wishing to attend the events should contact Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham or Mercedes-Benz of Manchester.

Chris Birch, parts supervisor at Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham, began his career with LSH Auto as an apprentice back in 2009. Chris said: “I started as an apprentice at Mercedes-Benz of Tamworth. After a year there, an opportunity came up to join the team at Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham. I completed my apprenticeship there, was nominated for Apprentice of the Year and became a qualified parts specialist. In 2017, I was promoted to parts supervisor and took charge of my own team.”

Attendees to the events this week will receive a tour of the facilities and learn more about the Mercedes-Benz apprentice scheme, the roles available, how to apply and what to expect if their application is successful.

Scarlett Darby, who enrolled as an apprentice in September 2020, said: “Originally, I went to college to do a beauty course, but I quickly realised that wasn’t for me. I joined the Mercedes-Benz apprentice scheme and now work in the parts team for LSH Auto, at Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham. I really enjoy being an apprentice here and I’d definitely recommend it.”
