Motor Technician Apprenticeship

Coastal Cars
Passionate about working with cars? Coastal Cars are looking to employ an enthusiastic, outgoing apprentice to join their busy and expanding garage for their motor technician apprenticeship. You’ll learn all aspects of vehicle diagnostics & repair.

Coastal Cars - Employer

Coastal Cars has been providing customers with a warm welcome, friendly and informed service, and an excellent selection of used vehicles since 2005. Initially operating from one premises in Ringwood Road, Poole, the success of Coastal Cars and our ever expanding stock of quality used vehicles saw us later add our Ferndown branch with 5-bay service workshop. We now buy and sell all makes and models at both branches and cater for all vehicle servicing needs including MOT’s and Air Conditioning servicing at Ferndown. Our Ferndown site also offers fixed price servicing, repairs and MOTs at main dealer standards so you can have complete confidence in the quality of our work and for added peace of mind. We as a company are now looking to expand by looking for a young apprentice to take up the reins and develop their skills within our workshop. With the varying types of vehicles we have at our disposal there is a vast range of experience and knowledge that can be passed onto and develop into a successful member of the team. Being new to taking on apprentices we are aware that this will be a learning curve for both of us and that we are able to develop and grow within the company.
