What will the apprentice be doing?

If you are computer literate and interested in how things work and what parts go where on machines and like the thought/satisfaction of working out the right parts for the customer and getting them going when they have a breakdown or parts for a routine service, then become a Parts Advisor with The Burdens Group.

We offer full training, including on the New Holland parts systems, EPC (electronic parts catalogue) use, stock control, how to build attractive displays, how to talk to customers at the counter and over the phone to get the right information to work out their needs, how to use our Parts management system to book parts into stock, check stock of parts through our group and book parts out to customers.

Lastly, if you like technology, the agricultural industry has a wide variety of tech being used, from GPS systems and steering tractors to robotics. As a group, we are involved with developing these technologies, so there is never the same day twice!

An average day will include,

  • Checking off deliveries to make sure the right items have come.
    Booking Items into stock as per the order on our parts management system
  • Looking parts up in the EPC electronic parts catalogues
  • Re-stocking the showroom
  • Packing orders ready for dispatch
  • Talking to customers with the aid of the parts team to work out the customers’ requirements
  • Making new displays to attract customers' attention when they come into the showroom
