Lookers recognised in top 100

Lookers has become the only national motor retailer in the UK to be entered into a list of the country’s top 100 companies employing apprentices.

The list was announced at the National Apprenticeship Awards, which took place on 18 January at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, and recognises excellence in businesses that employ apprentices.

The inclusion of Lookers comes at a time when the group’s apprenticeship programme is attracting increased attention from those looking to forge a career in the motor industry, with its intake more than doubling from 78 to 162 last year.

Commenting on the company’s new title as a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer, Steve Maule, group head of qualifications at Lookers said, ‘We are very proud to be named in this prestigious list and to be rubbing shoulders with some of the best apprenticeship employers in the country. We’ve worked extremely hard to develop our programme into one that works both for our apprentices, as well as one that covers all of the essential skills that are so critical to the future of motor retail, repair and maintenance.’
