New jobs and investment at Leeds car retailer
Vertu Leeds Jaguar Land Rover has undergone a significant refurbishment and relocation of its service centre, creating three service trainee roles and an apprenticeship.
The retailer has also introduced a night shift for technicians, to give customer’s complete flexibility and help attract new technicians.
The service centre has been moved upstairs on its Gemini Business Park site, allowing an even more spacious and comfortable place for customers to discuss their vehicle’s maintenance and servicing.
Rik Shield, Head of Business at Vertu Leeds Jaguar Land Rover said: “Customer facing colleagues had outgrown the original service centre but with some investment and reconfiguration, we have created a larger working space to accommodate the growing team.
“Demand for servicing has led us to establish a night shift, which allows customers to drop off their vehicles during the evening, or perhaps on the way home from work and have them delivered back next morning.
“We also hope that by offering night shift roles we can continue to attract the very best technicians.”
