New apprentice steers towards success at Jennings Kia

Jennings Kia, part of the Jennings Motor Group, has recruited a new Apprentice at its dealership in Stockton.

Young and ambitious, Olivia Jeal, 19, from Middlesbrough, is steering towards a successful career with the motor dealer group after being appointed as an Apprentice sales administrator at the company’s Concorde Way dealership in Stockton.

The one-year Apprenticeship programme will see Olivia gaining valuable hands-on experience through on-the-job training, in addition to working towards nationally recognised qualifications in sales administration.

Olivia said; “I am delighted to have been given this excellent opportunity and looking forward to learning new skills in sales administration.

“The Apprenticeship programme is great because it is allowing me to gain valuable experience, in addition to being given the opportunity to work towards additional qualifications and earn a wage at the same time.”

Working within the sales administration department at the Stockton dealership, Olivia is learning all aspects of the job, including taxing new and used vehicles, checking vehicle stock, invoicing and filing.

Steven Flack, franchise manager at Jennings Kia in Stockton, said; “We are delighted to welcome Olivia on board, she is one of many Apprentices being taken on within various departments across the group and who will be given the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with trained professionals in their field.”
