There are a huge array of jobs within the motor industry that can appeal to a large number of people. If you are looking for a hands on job and have an interest in cars and engines then the job of a mechanic may be perfect for you. If you have great customer service skills and are able to sell then car sales will suit you to the ground. If you like working in an office environment and are good working with others and on your own then the sales administration department may have just what you are looking for.
Along with the wide variety of jobs in the car industry, the pay is also varied. Many jobs are performance based, meaning if you sell more cars or upsell on products or services then you may have the option to bulk up your wage.
Most garages offer their employees a very reasonable discount on parts and labour, often selling tyres etc. at cost price meaning you simply cannot find a better deal. This can save you hundreds of pounds over the year on serving and repairs and you can often get work done at short notice. If you are in a position to buy a car again you can often get a huge discount or even the opportunity to buy a car that has come in as a part exchange.
