Hyundai Apprentice of the Year

Hyundai honours top apprentices

Hyundai has honoured its top apprentices in their Apprentic of the Year awards 2015, with T W White & Sons own apprentice, David Rutherford being awarded “Runner –Up” position.

Hyundai UK’s three-year Apprentice Programme has been designed by the company to improve customer service and the quality of Hyundai products, delivering a first class package to you.

Aftersales Director for Hyundai UK, Nick Tunnell: “The awards aim to recognise the hard work and endeavour of our trainees but also to encourage top class servicing standards from the technicians of the future. “As our business grows, so do the demands of our customers and it is imperative that we develop the skills, knowledge and pride of our dealer network from the ground up.” Awards were handed out across all three years, with accolades in the Best Apprentice and Most Improved Apprentice categories up for grabs.

David Rutherford of T W White & Sons proved why our dealer group offers the level of service our customers have come to expect from us, highlighting our attention to detail, professional attitude and quality of workmanship that can be found at all levels throughout the company.

There are approximately 30 apprentices training with Hyundai UK over its three-year programme at any one time- proving that only the most hardworking, skillful and conscientious of students make the grade.

Throughout the year apprentices get assessed in a number of different areas – including theory-based tests, practical ability and delivery through close contact with their tutors, and overall attitude and participation. It’s this painstaking attention to detail in the education of Hyundai service operators that ensure the precision and quality of workmanship you receive when your vehicle goes for service and when dealing with our vehicle technicians.

Patrick Dwyer, Aftersales Manager said “I am delighted that one of our Apprentices, David, has been recognized for his hard work and commitment in the prestigious awards. Hyundai are a company which has high customer satisfaction at the core of their focus, and as such, demand an incredibly high level of professionalism from their staff at all times. David is incredibly keen to learn and always works with a smile on his face. We are all very proud of him”
