Working as a Parts Apprentice


A parts apprenticeship with MAN can lead to much bigger things. Get involved, study for qualifications, learn from your colleagues and get an insight into what makes us an industry leader here, in the UK, and beyond. 

  • What is this apprenticeship?

    Over three years, this Parts apprenticeship will give you hands-on experience as a Parts Advisor and invaluable, career-building insight into the automotive industry with a leading company.


    You’ll learn from experienced, expert colleagues who are open and supportive, and gain qualifications that can form the foundation of a progressive career. 

  • What is the team like?

    Friendly, helpful and always willing to listen to both questions and ideas, you’ll find our team are willing to share their knowledge of the business, daily tasks and the industry at large.

    You can learn from and call on their experience at every stage of your apprenticeship, as well as being supported and supporting your fellow apprentices as you learn and grow together.  

  • Life as an apprentice

    Every day is different here with many opportunities to learn. You might be developing your customer service skills by selling parts to customers on the front counter, via email or over the phone. You might also be supplying your technician colleagues with parts that they fit in the workshop. We also deal with old units, processing returned parts, warranties and R&M. There are also van deliveries, stock control and warehouse maintenance to manage.  

    There’s much to learn and always opportunities to get involved with a variety of local, regional and national projects.

  • Our approach to learning

    This is very much a hands-on apprenticeship, with in-house learning supported and enabled by your experienced colleagues. Learning at your own pace, you’ll also be challenged to improve and reach your potential as you progress.


    You’ll also benefit from online and classroom-based training courses that help you to learn about specific subjects such as MAN, our products, your job description and role types. 

  • Career pathways

    Once you apply for one of our apprenticeship programmes, your application will be reviewed and you could be invited to an assessment that will consider your suitability using a number of tasks. 

    This might be summarising the main points of a promotional leaflet, or making a presentation on your strengths and potential for a role with MAN.
