Yorkshire business JCT600, one of the UK’s largest privately owned motor retailers, is inviting potential employees to come along to a careers event in Leeds to find out more about working for the company which is currently recruiting for 50 positions.
JCT600 which has its head office in Bradford and now has 47 dealerships, is hosting two informal careers evenings on both Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 November from 5- 9pm at one of its Leeds dealerships.
As well as a presentation about the company, members of staff will be available for one-to-one chats about the many opportunities available across a wide range of roles within the group
Graham Clark, HR director of JCT600, said:
“While JCT600 is extremely well known in the region, many people only seem to think of us as a potential employer if they are already working in the motor industry.
“Obviously, some of our roles do require specific motor-related experience, but we offer many that do not.
“From sales, after sales and administration staff to technicians and service advisers, there are literally hundreds of opportunities within the business.
“The main skills we are looking for are enthusiasm, a commitment to providing excellent customer service and the potential to learn and work hard; we will provide all of the necessary training to fill in any gaps.”
Mr Clark added:
“Having acquired the Gilder Group earlier this year, our workforce grew from 1,350 to more than 1,800 people, meaning that we can now offer even more opportunities for progression.
“As well as the benefits you would expect from one of Yorkshire’s leading companies, JCT600 still retains a very strong family ethos with many of our team having 35 years of service.
“We place a huge emphasis on enabling staff to grow with us by taking advantage of our robust internal development programme which offers clearly defined career paths – our aim is to attract the best staff and keep them.”
One of JCT600’s recent success stories is Akeel Ahmed who joined as a sales executive at JCT600 Mazda Bradford and is now working towards a management role.
Akeel will be one of the staff available to chat to prospective employees at the careers evenings.
