Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that applying for a new job is a significant and sometimes nerve wracking process! So we have listed below some frequently asked questions which we hope you will find helpful.

Can I get help with my application?

If you require any assistance completing your application, please contact

The original closing date for a role has changed, can I still apply?

Based on business needs, we reserve the rights to extend a closing date for applications or to remove an advert earlier than the original date.

While the role is still live, you are able to apply through the careers website directly, however if a role has been removed earlier than the original closing date, it will be at the hiring managers discretion if they still accept these applications.

What if I do not have the facility to send you my CV or complete the application process online?

Please contact the dealership at which the position you are interested in is based or email

After I’ve submitted my application what happens next?

If you have applied for a specific role your application will be sent to the sponsor of that position.

If you have sent us your CV speculatively, your application will be kept in our system and sent to Managers when they advertise a new role that matches your experience and qualifications. However, your CV will be removed from our system after 6 months, so if you are still actively seeking employment at that time, please resubmit your CV to us.

We are an equal opportunities employer and thus we treat every application fairly and equally.

When will I be contacted and by whom?

If you have applied online you will receive an automated e-mail to confirm that your application has been submitted successfully.

After this, if you have been successful in matching the experience and/or qualifications needed for the position, you may be contacted by a member of our team to arrange an interview.

Please note, that due to the often high volume of applications we receive, we cannot always respond to every unsuccessful application.

I have looked at your current vacancies and there is nothing of interest to me at the moment, what can I do next?

We are always searching for new talent to join our team! So even if we don’t have a position for you at the moment, it doesn’t mean we might not in the future.

Please send us your CV as a speculative application by clicking here. Your application will be kept in our system and sent to Managers when they advertise a new role in the future that matches your experience and qualifications.

I’ve been asked to attend an interview, what can I expect from it?

At Sytner we see an interview with a potential employee very much as a ‘two way street’. It’s as much about what we can do to impress you, in order for you to want to come and join us, as how you can impress us with your skills and experience!

We understand that interviews can make some people nervous, but we aim to make your time with us as relaxed and comfortable as possible. We want you to enjoy your interview, so you can confidently tell us about your strengths and attributes and more importantly, feel comfortable to ask us any questions you may have.

Our interview process can vary from business to business. However, the most typical process is that you will firstly attend an initial interview and then if you succeed at this stage you will then be invited to attend another, sometimes with additional interviewers.

You may also be asked to undertake a psychometric test for some positions, but please do not be at all concerned about this. The test requires no specific automotive knowledge and simply helps us understand better your unique personality and working style.

What if I think I may need help accessing the building where my interview is being held?

If you feel that we may need to consider specific access requirements to enable you to attend your interview, please simply let your interviewer know in good time and they will gladly ensure that the appropriate arrangements are made.

What do I need to do to prepare for my interview?

This will depend on the nature of the role you are applying for, so it is worth clarifying this when you are called for interview. However in general we would advise you to make sure you have a good understanding of what Sytner Group do and most importantly be able to tell us what skills you have that make you the perfect candidate for the job!

I’ve attended an interview, what will happen next?

The Sytner team member who conducted your interview will contact you to let you know their decision. We aim to contact all applicants after an interview.

Do you offer internships and work experience placements?

Whilst we welcome applications for work experience across all of our businesses, our ability to offer placements is entirely dependant on the demands of each individual dealership. Please contact your local dealership for more information.

I want to apply for an Apprenticeship programme with Sytner. How does my application get processed?

Your application will be processed in the same manner as described above, although as our Apprentice programmes are managed alongside our Manufacturer partners, you may be required to apply directly to the Manufacturer also.

We will inform you of this if a suitable position becomes available.
