During the past 7 months, we have been working on a campaign for young individuals who are looking for an apprentice opportunity with Burrows Toyota. We have been holding events across our Toyota dealerships in Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster and Sheffield where they have been given the chance to tour the dealership and speak and ask members of staff about apprenticeships and working at Burrows.
Burrows Toyota staff were invited to local schools to do a presentation explaining the working life at Burrows and the Search for a Star campaign we would be launching in the new year.
The fun open evenings were held at our Burrows Toyota dealerships which was the start of the launch of the Search for a Star campaign. The young individuals had access to insights to the different areas of Burrows which included a tour of the workshop, speeches from staff, meeting some of the Burrows Toyota team members and Toyota Academy.
We held a 1 day workshop event at one of our dealerships - this was an employability skills training and selection day. The candidates took part in an interactive day learning “life at work” and “what skill employers look for”. During the afternoon, the candidates did a 2-minute presentation pitching to managers all about themselves and why Burrows should hire them. Burrows have gone through a selection process to invite the best candidates to a 1 week work placement anywhere within the business.
1 week work placements are due to commence and the successful applicants will become stars of Burrows and will be offered an apprenticeship programme with us. Good luck!
