SLM Vauxhall Hastings Welcomes New Apprentice Technician Sam Ide

SLM Vauxhall Hastings are Delighted to Welcome New Apprentice Technician, Sam Ide.

  • Sam joins as Apprentice Technician and his role will primarily involve learning how to repair and service cars. 

    This is the beginning of Sam's career in the motor industry. After studying motor mechanics at college, Sam is committing to his development and continuing his passion for motors by joining the SLM Vauxhall Hastings team. 

    Sam has always had a passion for cars. Although this is his first job, he studied motors at college and when he was able to, he also worked with his dad who has a home garage set up. "I have done some work experience with my dad, who has his own company, he'll fix cars, tractors, mowers - practically anything that has an engine!"

    Outside of work, Sam enjoys driving field cars and going to the gym. He's also pretty athletic - "I used to do quite a lot of trampolining when I was younger, so I can do a backflip on the floor!". Pretty cool, Sam!

    Sam hasn't yet had his first car, but he says he might opt for a VW Polo. "My sister has had a couple and they seem to make a good first car". Without having the chance yet to decide his favourite car from the Vauxhall range, we asked what Sam's all-time favourite car was. "For me, it's got to be the Ford Mustang Fastback 1969! I think I first saw it in a movie, and thought it was a really awesome car." Good choice, Sam.

    Finally, we asked Sam if there was anywhere in the world he could visit for just 24 hours, where it would be. "New Zealand looks nice, so I'd go there, especially to check out the beaches!"

    Sam and the rest of the SLM Vauxhall Hastings team look forward to meeting you in the dealership soon.

    Welcome to the team, Sam.
