As an approved Ford motor vehicle technician, David will be working as part of a 12-strong service team where he will be responsible for carrying out service and MOTs to customer’s vehicles, in addition to identifying and fixing any mechanical problems using the latest diagnostic equipment at the dealership.

Welcoming David on board, service manager, Duncan Oliver, said; “David’s appointment is as a result of an increase in the number of service and MOT bookings at the dealership.

“Already he is proving to be an asset and welcome addition to the hard-working service team at Shields.”

Originally, David started his career as a car valeter for an independent company in Sheffield, but he soon realised that fixing cars was what he really wanted to do.

After successfully completing a Level 2 Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair at Olive Grove College in Sheffield, David started working for a motor dealer group where he embarked on a training programme and became a Ford approved technician, prior to relocating to the North East and securing his current role with Jennings.

David said; “Jennings Motor Group has an excellent reputation within the motor industry, not only for having such a long history, but also for the company’s award-winning customer service – and I am delighted to now be part of it.” 

As well as offering a number of aftersales facilities, including service, MOT and parts, the South Shields-based dealership is also responsible for selling quality approved used vehicles delivered direct from the manufacturer.
