Do you know someone who is looking to start a career as a motorcycle technician? If so, let them know about this.

Suzuki’s GB arm has announced that it is looking for 16-19 year-olds with the right stuff to join its 2016 apprenticeship programme. Successful applicants will join a two or three-year course covering servicing, diagnostics and other practical skills split between Suzuki’s Doncaster training centre and work at one of Suzuki’s authorised dealerships. At the end, the apprentices will have a nationally recognised qualification.

Suzuki GB’s Training Manager for Aftersales Richard O’Brien said: “The apprentices are able to develop their skills while also earning a wage through their work at the dealerships, and after graduation go on to forge successful careers in those dealerships, supporting the wider motorcycle industry.

“The motorcycle industry plays a big part in our economy, and it’s important not only to demonstrate to young people that you can have a successful career in it, but also to help sustain it by passing on the skills to the next generation.”
