Graduates and Apprentices

There are over 800,000 people employed in the UK either directly or indirectly within the trade with around 5,000 franchised dealerships selling New and Used cars in the UK. The car industry is the largest private sector employer in the country and it therefore makes an invaluable contribution to the UK economy. The retail Motor Industry is very diverse and allows for people with many different skill sets to carve out successful careers. As well as Sales & Aftersales there are many further opportunities within a dealership environment which you might move into such as Accounts, Administration, Marketing or Finance.

We have a strong ‘One Team’ ethos within our business. With this in mind, we encourage all our managers to have an open door policy so they are ready to listen and welcome all contributions and suggestions from our team members. This ‘One Team’ culture goes beyond getting the day to day job done; it means that we also fully encourage our businesses to have fun! This can mean anything from our charity fundraising commitments, to helping out in our local communities or even just having fun within our teams. Our dealerships have been known to get up to a variety of antics such as summer BBQ’s cooked by the Directors, fancy dress days and even baked bean tasting! It’s all part of creating a fun atmosphere and making Sytner the Best Company to Work for. Not only are our businesses enjoyable places to work, we are also proud of achieving a very low turnover of employees, creating a stable workforce. This means that not only will you develop good working relationships with your colleagues; many of our team members tell us that they develop long lasting friendships during their career with Sytner.
