Skoda offers trainee positions

Skoda Ireland is to take on 80 trainees in technician, parts, service and sales over the next four years, writes Brian Byrne.

Twenty of the positions will be filled before the end of the year in the programme, which represents a €400,000 investment by the company.

Skoda Ireland says there's particularly a shortage of suitably qualified technicians across the motor industry, as dealerships weren't able to invest in training during the recession.

The scheme trims from seven to four years the time it takes to be a fully trained Skoda technician.

Applications close on Wednesday 30 November. Further information from skoda.ie/careers.
