The health of the automotive sector in the UK is clear from the fact that vehicle and parts manufacturing continues to grow and companies are investing in new dealerships. This shows that both the production and sales side of the industry is very healthy. Both also provide good reading in terms of job prospects with expansions typically creating new roles.
One business that is expanding and creating jobs is car dealers JCT600, the largest company of their type in the UK. They recently broke ground on their brand new Porsche Centre in Teesside. This new site will add to their existing Centres in Newcastle, Sheffield and Leeds.
The 2.6 acre site will see extensive redevelopment over the coming months. Two existing buildings will be adapted, creating a 15 car showroom, capacity for 40 additionally pre-owned vehicles, and an array of top of the line facilities for vehicle maintenance and customer use. The latter includes an executive lounge area and a ‘kid’s zone’.
Once up and running in the summer of 2018 the Teesside Porsche Centre will offer new and used vehicle sales, servicing, parts, and a fleet of loan vehicles too. For two years JCT600 has been looking for the ideal site for their latest dealership. The North Yorkshire location is easily accessible and the new Centre will cater for much of the region.
Another great piece of news about the project is that up to 30 new jobs are expected to be created. JCT600 will be undertaking a period of automotive recruitment over the coming months to find the right candidates to take up these new roles. It is vital they choose the right people to make the most of the investment that is being made and the new facilities that will be available once the work is completed.
