Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as a Service Technician Apprentice, working with vehicles that use some of the most advanced technology in the world. As a team member in our prestigious retailer you will be involved in all aspects of vehicle maintenance from routine services to complex diagnostics and repairs.

Responsibilities

Our apprenticeship is geared toward training the next generation of fully-fledged Service Technicians. But what does a Service Technician actually do?

Service Technicians service and repair light vehicles such as cars up to 3.5 tonnes. Technicians are trained in all areas of vehicle mechanics and electronics, from engine and exhaust systems to air conditioning and security features. The duties of a Service Technician may include:

  • Servicing vehicles – carrying out checks and maintenance according to the manufacturers’ guidelines
  • Repairing and replacing faulty parts and components
  • Advising the Service Receptionists about required repairs
  • Producing time estimates
  • Maintaining repair and service records

Please note, the Service Technician role varies slightly by employer based upon the specific needs within the location.

Future Prospects

There are lots of opportunities to develop your career within our expanding Retailer Network. Your early development is carefully mapped through your Apprenticeship journey with your learning focussed toward achieving an industry recognised qualification.

Embedded within your training are the Jaguar Land Rover global training materials.

At the end of your Apprenticeship Programme you'll undertake the Jaguar Land Rover Level 2 Assessment, the first step on the Jaguar Land Rover (internal) Learner Journey.

This is the grounding for your future development within the network and our Learner Management System, Excellence will guide you through your short, medium- and long-term career path.

Reality Check

The National Minimum Wage for Apprentices is £4.15 per hour as of April 2020. This applies to 16 -18-years old Apprentices and those aged 19 and over in the first year of their apprenticeship. For all other apprentices the Apprentice National Minimum wage appropriate to their age applies.

Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that's part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
