Job description

BMW/MINI Trainee Service Advisor

Once in a while an opportunity appears….Would you like to set your career on the right path by joining the best training programme in the industry?

This is a customer facing role, managing the relationship with BMW/MINI customers who have their vehicles serviced and repaired by us, however you will spend the first half of the training programme learning all of the back-of-house administrative processes that will equip you with a thorough understanding of every element of the customer journey.  This work will require a high degree of accuracy, so you must have excellent attention to detail.  You must be educated to A level standard or equivalent, have GCSE Maths, English and one other subject at grades A* to C/9-4, with an appetite for learning and a commitment to being a positive team player.

Once trained, your role will be focused on dealing with customers, who have high expectations and a varied range of needs and demands, therefore you need to have exceptional interpersonal skills and be able to build rapport, as well as a desire to provide the highest level of customer service.

You’ll learn, grow and develop with us, building a fascinating, challenging and exciting career from the ground-up.

All Service Advisor Trainees attend the BMW Group Academy in Berkshire for some of their off-the-job training. The programme will have a strong focus on the retail environment and the high customer service expectations of BMW & MINI customers, as well as Service Advisor role-specific training. The training takes place over a 12 month period and on successful completion of the programme, you will be a qualified Service Advisor. You will also have a Level 2 Customer Service Practitioner and an exceedingly bright future!

As the UK’s largest prestige motor retail group we provide an outstanding working environment and exciting career opportunities. We are incredibly committed to being the best company to work for.

Our customers are very important to us and we want only the very best people looking after them and their vehicles. Have you got what it takes?
