    Howards Citroen Young Apprentice Wins Trophy in National Awards

    Matt Staple, a vehicle technician at Howards Citroen Taunton, has been awarded second place in the national Peugeot and Citroen Apprentice of the Year Awards.

 

Matt Staple, a vehicle technician at Howards Citroen Taunton, has been awarded second place in the national Peugeot and Citroen Apprentice of the Year Awards, following an intensive nine hour assessment.

Matt, 21, has worked at Howards Citroen for three years and Steven Herbert, Service Manager at Howards Citroen Taunton said, “We are very proud of the progress Matt’s made and what he’s achieved in the short time he’s been with us.”


The nine hour, 8am-5pm assessment, included a series of practical assessments, interviews, an exam and workshop activities. Matt was joined by around 300 opponents providing stiff competition for him, but he still managed to grab second place! The former Ladymead Community School pupil commented: “I was delighted to come second out of hundreds of other apprentices. It was quite daunting being watched so closely during the assessment, but it was a great experience and I was honoured to have been selected to compete.”

Howards Motor Group first supported a young apprentice back in 1972 – Peter Coleman – who now heads up the company and employs around 240 people. It’s certainly a positive step for Matt to take and everyone at the Group congratulates him on his success!

Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only. Company Number: 1108986

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
