Burrows Search for a Star

The Burrows Search for a Star scheme is an apprenticeship programme for young individuals who are looking for an apprentice opportunity within the motor trade.

At the start of the new year we will be visiting schools across South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire to talk to students about the Burrows Search for a Star campaign and the working life as an apprentice at Burrows Motor Company. This will give you the chance to ask any questions that you may have.
