Employed as an Apprentice Vehicle Parts Advisor at Brayley Kia on Luton Road, 18 year-old Jack comes from a motor industry family, as his parents own vehicle service and repair business, Seacott Motor Company in Luton.

Keen to carve out his own career within the automotive sector, Jack was thrilled to earn a place on the Kia Advanced Apprenticeship scheme, which involves a number of 5-day training sessions over two years, at the state-of-the-art Kia Academy in Nottingham. Working towards his Level 3 Diploma in Vehicle Parts, Jack’s responsibilities include managing stock control, ordering and selling parts, as well as handling customer enquiries.

Commenting on his new appointment at Brayley Kia, Jack said:

“I’ve always been interested in cars and motor racing so I’m very pleased to have the chance to start my career at a great company like Brayley Kia in Harpenden. Doing an apprenticeship will give me a good foundation for the future and I’m really looking forward to visiting Kia’s new training centre. Maybe one day I’ll get a chance to work on a Formula 1 car, which would be a dream come true.”

Having started his own career as an apprentice, Paul Brayley, Managing Director of Brayleys, has helped a number of young people onto the career ladder, many who now hold senior positions within his business. He said:

“We’re very pleased to welcome Jack into our busy dealership in Harpenden, which has grown by over 30% in the past year. An Apprenticeship provides an excellent foothold in the motor industry and the training provided by the Kia Academy is second to none, so we look forward to seeing him learn new skills and develop as a valuable member of the team at Harpenden.”
