Picture the scene: you’re 21 years old, half way through your university degree and need to find a work placement role. But how do you go about it and what business should you choose? That was the dilemma facing Millie Frith from Tarporley in her second year of a marketing and events degree at Chester University.
Porsche Centre Chester, based at Cheshire Oaks, has long provided school and college leavers with a career path through its apprenticeship programme. The programme is so successful that more than half of the six technicians working at the Centre have joined following their apprenticeship. Carl Hazelton, Centre Principal at Porsche Centre Chester, said: “As a business we’re always open to work experience and supporting the careers of local people, young and old. When I received Millie’s letter I was immediately drawn to her enthusiasm for the industry and was more than happy to help facilitate the placement."
Millie’s placement involved supporting Marketing Executive, Kat Smith, and included research on how best to support the sales and service teams to provide an exceptional service to Porsche Centre Chester customers.
“I greatly respect all the staff for being so welcoming. Some places aren’t really interested in helping students on work experience, but everyone at Porsche Centre wanted to help me. Carl and his team went above and beyond for me and made sure the work I did directly helped the business."
At Porsche Centre Chester, it is important to us to build a platform to help as many local young people as possible. To enquire about potential apprenticeships, work experience, or to speak to a member of our sales, service or parts team, please ring the Centre on 0845 845 4911 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
