Working as part of the busy sales team, Bradley is gaining valuable hands-on experience through on-the-job training, in addition to working towards nationally recognised qualifications through Learning Skills Partnership.

Bradley said; “I’m thoroughly enjoying working as part of the sales team at Jennings Mazda.

“The two-year Apprenticeship programme is ideal as it is allowing me to gain valuable knowledge and experience in a sales environment, as well as working towards achieving national vocational qualifications, which is great.”

During his first year, Bradley has successfully completed a series of in-house training programmes, in addition to attending various courses in relation to the product range, which has been organised through the manufacturer.
