A top technician at Jennings Ford Direct in South Shields, has been rewarded for his loyalty to the company.

David Fletcher, 38, from Fellgate in Jarrow, has been celebrating after achieving 15 years’ loyalty at the group’s Newcastle Road dealership in South Shields.

Dedicated David, who was one of the group’s first employees to achieve the highly prestigious Automotive Technician Accreditation in 2006, was presented with his loyalty vouchers by service manager, Jeff Appleyard.

Jeff said; “David is a dedicated member and an asset to the service team at Shields and it was a pleasure presenting him with his loyalty vouchers.”

In order to achieve the highly prestigious Automotive Technician Accreditation in 2006, David signed a code of conduct and then went on to successfully pass a number of practical and theory tests, which took place over a period of six months at Ford’s Training Centre in Daventry.

There are three levels of accreditation; Service Maintenance Technician, Diagnostic Technician and Master Technician, all of which reflects an individual’s job role, experience and qualifications.

Since 2006, thanks to support and encouragement from his employer, David has successfully achieved Master Technician status, which is the highest achievable accreditation.

Working as part of a 10-strong service team, he is currently responsible for carrying out MOT tests and servicing customer’s cars at the South Shields branch.

“I’m delighted to receive the vouchers. It’s great to have your hard work recognised in such a rewarding way as this.”
