Don’t just take our word for it; here are some words from staff members

"I started with Nicholson’s as a Service Advisor in 2016. I moved into sales and later got promoted to Sales Manager. I recently had my first child and Nicholson's were really accommodating with my transition back into the workforce. As a working mum this can be intimidating, and they made the process as seamless as possible."

Abi Webb

"I've been working with Nicholson Nissan since we opened in 2018. There is a strong sense of belonging and being part of a team, something that is fostered here at all levels. I enjoy watching new staff that join us, realise they are working for a special place and special people. The mutual respect and comradeship for one another soon becomes infectious. "

Bruce Macfarlane

"I started with Nicholson's in July 2019 after a break away from the industry. By December I was offered the role as Parts Manager. I’ve been given the training and tools I need to be successful in my role as Parts Manager. I really enjoy our communication and that we work as a collective. That’s quite different to places I've worked in the past. "

Mark Mountfort

"I started working with Nicholson's as an apprentice in 2015. Since then, I have become a qualified technician, and recently became a qualified WOF inspector too. Not long ago I moved to a new Nicholson location. This allowed me to develop more knowledge and better myself and my skills as a technician. I enjoy working at Nicholson's because it’s a friendly work environment and everyone works as a team. "

Caitlin Eastgate

"I started my journey with Nicholson's in 2003 as an apprentice mechanic. 18 years later, I'm now General Manager. The best thing about working for Nicholson's is the family feel and knowing that someone will always be there to help when needed. I’m proud to work for Nicholson Autos and enjoy the involvement we have with our community including local charities, sports clubs and helping with local projects. "
