Motor dealer group rewards Master technician with third promotion
Posted on 29 Jul 2015
One of Jennings Motor Group’s top technicians is celebrating after receiving a third promotion within 10 years’ service.
Paul Eltringham, 37, from County Durham, has taken over as workshop foreman at Jennings Motor Group’s Ford and Kia service department based on Parsons Road in Washington.
Paul said: “I am delighted with the promotion, which is another excellent opportunity for me to progress my career within the group.”
Paul’s career with Jennings Motor Group started in 2005 when he was appointed as a motor vehicle technician. Within a few years, he passed the relevant theory and practical courses and received his first promotion to senior motor vehicle technician. In 2014, following additional rigorous training and assessments, he became a fully-fledged master technician - the highest level that can be achieved within the industry.
Paul added; “Since joining the company 10 years ago, I have been given the opportunity to work my way up the ranks to the highest level of master technician status.”
In his new role as workshop foreman, Paul will now be responsible for the day-to-day running of the workshop, overseeing a team of 17 members of staff, in addition to organising, prioritising and allocating specific jobs on a daily basis to members of the service and MOT team and ensuring the highest quality of workmanship is carried out at all times.
June Appleyard, service manager at Jennings Motor Group’s service department in Washington, said; “As a company committed to continuously training and developing staff, Paul is a perfect example of what can be achieved as a result of hard work, dedication and commitment, in addition to the many opportunities available to staff.
“He is an asset to the service team and truly deserved the promotion.”
Prior to joining Jennings Motor Group, Paul gained valuable experience and knowledge working as a motor vehicle technician for another motor dealer in the region.
In addition to the MOT, service and parts department on site at the Parsons Road dealership, customers can also take advantage of a Jennings Kia showroom, which sells the full new Kia car model line-up, in addition to a variety of quality used vehicles.
