We like to think that we have an eye for talent and unbridled determination when recruiting staff at SLM Toyota, which we believe translates to the high levels of customer satisfaction that we enjoy. Recently, our Attleborough Toyota Centre spotted a superb opportunity in someone, right at the start of their career, and offered a position to sheer determination that is rarely witnessed.
Meet Riley Aldridge, who joins the Toyota Attleborough aftersales team as a technician. Riley has recently completed his level 3 diploma in vehicle maintenance, which he initially followed with a short-term position at a local repair & service centre to gain some essential front-line knowledge and experience.
However, it wasn’t just that Riley was qualified for the position, or that at the start of his career he joins us with a ‘clean slate’ to build on. It was the initiative and determination that Riley was showing in his spare time to further hone his craft that made him a unique, and unmissable appointment for us.
Ian MacDonald, SLM Toyota Attleborough Centre Principal said: “Riley was selected for the role after demonstrating his determination to secure a position with SLM – He had found himself a position volunteering at the Norwich Airport Museum to feed his love of engineering and attention to detail, a couple of traits which will fit in well with our current technical staff. Good luck Riley and welcome aboard.”
Riley is looking forward to progressing with his new role, learning all he can from his colleagues, and embracing all that the future has to hold.
Welcome to the team Riley, we know you’ll do well!
