This is the job
As part of our continued investment into the next generation of AA employees, we’re pleased to be offering a 3-year apprenticeship programme, in partnership with our training provider Bosch.
If you’re hard-working and self-motivated, with a passion for mechanics and helping others, this could be the perfect place to start your career!
What will I be doing?
Following a short AA induction at our Oldbury site, you’ll be welcomed into your local garage to begin your new career. We’ll give you all the support and resources you need; with a line manager, an experienced buddy and a dedicated development coach from Bosch, to help you work towards your Level 3 Motor Vehicle Service and Maintenance (Light Vehicle) qualification.
Once you complete the scheme, you’ll be ready to join our Full Time Patrol team, putting your diagnostic skills to the test when our members’ vehicles are having a bad day. You’ll call on all your knowledge and training from the apprenticeship to help you fix all kinds of customer vehicles.
As a Full-Time Patrol member, your shifts will include some evenings, weekends, and Bank Holidays, so you’ll need to be comfortable driving to all kinds of locations, in all weathers and working independently and efficiently.
What you’ll love
There’s so much variety to enjoy in the Patrol team. You’ll manage your own work, with options to meet additional targets and boost your earnings too, with the support of the wider team only ever a phone call away.
You’ll get to work with the latest diagnostic technology and repairs equipment, as you represent a trusted brand at the forefront of the industry and help customers in need.
What do I need?
To apply for this Apprenticeship, you’ll need:
* Grade 4 or above in Maths & English (C grade GCSE), or a level 2 in Functional Skills Maths and English
* To have a UK driving license, or be working towards one
* To be passionate about helping others, and learning all about car mechanics
What do our Apprentices think of the scheme?
We asked one of our current Apprentices, Tamsin, to share her thoughts. She said:
I’ve found the apprenticeship really useful, learning new skills and working towards a qualification.
The AA let me be pretty independent, but I have support from my manager when I needed it, so I know I can make a call at any time to get guidance or advice.
Lee, Tamsin's Performance Leader says:
It's been fantastic to watch Tamsin grow and develop throughout her apprenticeship, and I feel honoured to be part of her journey into the AA patrol. Tamsin will be a great addition to my patrol team, and I'm looking forward to handing over the keys to her yellow van and formally welcoming her in December.
What else should I know?
As a valued member of our team, you'll have access to a range of great benefits from paid holiday through to free AA Breakdown membership.
Good conduct matters to us. Our teams are motivated by doing the right thing for both customers and colleagues. We ask all our employees to act with honesty & integrity and respect for others at all times.
We're an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from anyone regardless of race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
