"Younger people are switched on to the technology side of things"
Steve Richardson has had a fruitful relationship with Mantra. His company, Richardsons Motors are specialist mechanics for Heavy Motor Vehicles. The currently have one apprentice from Mantra and also do a number of skills course with us. Here is what he had to say what he wants to see in his apprentices?
"When we invest in apprentices we get good LGV mechanics down the line, working to the high standards we work to and the industry requires."
"Young people are keen to learn... and they quite switched on to the technology side of thing, whereas older people can be a bit stale with it."
"Within the Heavy Good Industry, you can progress onto a number of roles, whether it be foreman, managerial roles. Wherever they want to end up really in the industry, not just in mechanic roles."
"I look for an apprentice to be punctual, polite and willing to learn."
