Hockey Group Automotive started in a small garage at the side of the Hockey Household repairing mainly tractors, trailers and machinery for local farmers. Gareth Hockey, now the owner, came into the family business straight from school and has remained here ever since. Read more of the history of hockeys here:
What you probably didn’t know about us
Training opportunities for our staff
We provide our staff with valuable and consistent training. We allow them to expand their skill sets and gain knowledge about the industry. We also believe that it increases productivity and staff morale and also improves the quality of work.
We provide training through all areas of mechanics, our most recent course being a MOT manager.
We are aiming to become an eco friendly and sustainable garage.
There are many benefits to being an sustainable company such as:
- Less clutter- who doesn’t like having less clutter. We keep as, much data online as possible this means that your information will always be safe and at no risk of being lost or stolen.
- Having access to all the information at your fingertips is like a dream come true, no more digging around in folders and files is no longer, we like to keep it all organised on our database.
- We suggest to people that they receive their invoice through email (digitally) rather than printed out, however, we still offer that option.
- Our MOT reminders are sent via email to reduce the use of paper.
Work Experience and Working with Schools
We work with local schools and colleges to provide work placement opportunities for their students. We provide them with experience of a real-life job in their preferred profession. It also allows them to gain “softer” employability skills needed for the work environment.
If you are a School or College local to our garage and would like to discuss the potential of working with us for work placements please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
