Callum originally started his career as a service advisor working at the group’s Ford branch in Middlesbrough in November 2014, but after he passed his theory and practical driving test, he was keen to work in sales, and in 2016 he transferred to the company’s SEAT dealership.

In addition to selling the SEAT range and quality used cars to customers, Callum’s additional role will also see him being responsible for advising customers who are eligible to lease a new car through the Motability programme, arranging test drives, generating sales, and delivering cars to customers.

Callum said; “This is a great opportunity for me to gain experience and knowledge in the Motability side of the business.

“I’m looking forward to helping and advising customers about the wide range of SEAT models available through the Motability programme, as well as assisting individuals on the road to mobility.”

To be eligible to lease a new car through the Motability programme at Jennings SEAT, customers need to be in receipt of the following benefits, including the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMC-DLA), Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP), Armed Forces Independent Payment (AFIP), or War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS).

Motability customers can choose from a wide range of models, including the Mii and Arona - which are both available with a Nil Advance Payment - as well as the Ibiza, Leon, Ateca and Alhambra also being available.

Motability customers are able to choose a new car every three years and can nominate up to two drivers.  They can also take advantage of insurance, servicing and maintenance, full RAC breakdown assistance, annual car tax, replacement tyres, a 60,000 mileage allowance over the three-year lease, and many adaptations at no extra cost.

Prior to securing full-time employment at Jennings Motor Group, Callum completed a two-year BTEC in Media Studies at Middlesbrough College.
