Following the announcement of their highest ever market share – 7.2% for the first half of 2018 – ŠKODA Ireland’s dealer network is seeking to recruit 24 apprentice technicians, across 17 dealerships.
This recruitment campaign is the result of continued growth and strong performance from the Czech brand. In a year when overall car sales are down over 4%, ŠKODA Ireland has grown its sales volume by 4.3%.
The volume of ŠKODA vehicles on Irish roads, coupled with the brand’s objective of becoming a top five brand in Ireland, has led to greater staffing needs.
Commenting on the announcement, William Lee, Head of After Sales at ŠKODA Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be in a position to create 24 new apprentice positions – particularly at a time when young, talented and driven Leaving Certificate students are making important decisions about their future and their career prospects.
Our customers are at the heart of our business and we always strive to deliver the best service in the motor industry. We are looking to recruit ambitious people, who will contribute to our continued brand growth and who will help us to continue to provide the excellent level of service that we have built our reputation on. For those successful candidates, we can ensure an innovative, dynamic and rewarding career, for years to come.”
