Supporting the next generation

Porsche Centre Chester supports the next generation


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.
