Thomas said; “This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I am delighted to have been appointed with one of the region’s longest established motor dealer groups.”

Prior to joining Jennings Mitsubishi, Thomas spent time gaining experience in both retail and car sales, in addition also taking time out to travel to Australia and the United States of America.

On his return to the UK, his search for full-time employment began and he logged onto the internet where he came across the vacancy in sales at Jennings Mitsubishi.

Having previously worked in car sales for another motor dealer in the region, Thomas was invited for an interview and later was offered the role. 

Despite being involved in an unfortunate road traffic accident at the age of 15 and spending months recovering in hospital at a crucial point in his education, Thomas pulled out all the stops and managed to pass five GCSE exams.

Thomas added; “Because of the amount of school time I missed, my teachers weren’t expecting me to pass any of my exams, but I was determined to do it and I did.

“The accident made me realise that when you work hard enough and put your mind to something, you really can achieve anything.”

Commenting on the latest recruit at the Jennings Mitsubishi dealership, franchise manager, Norman Shepherd, said; “Thomas is one very determined young man and a welcome addition and asset to the sales team at Mitsubishi.”

Jennings Mitsubishi sells the entire new car range, including the i-MiEV, Mirage, Outlander, Outlander PHEV, Shogun and the L200 model.

Customers purchasing a vehicle from the dealership can also take advantage of an on-site service, MOT, accident repair centre and parts department.
