Jon’s a ŠKODA Service Challenge finals champion!

ŠKODA has named the 25 finalists of its Service Challenge competition and among them is JCB Euro ŠKODA Worthing’s very own Technician, Jon Smith!

The ŠKODA Service Challenge – now in its seventh year – is open to all ŠKODA servicing staff up and down the country and is designed to find the best service advisor, parts advisor, service technician and diagnostic technician in the UK.

This year, the Service Challenge saw record levels of interest with over 450 entrants. Technician Jon passed several selection stages which demonstrated his passion, drive, knowledge and skills to reach the national semi-finals this November.

Taking place at the Volkswagen Group National Learning Centre in Milton Keynes, competitors went through a series of practical and written challenges to test knowledge, ability and skills.

As a finalist, Jon will now go head-to-head in the national final in Milton Keynes on 1st December, with the aim of winning a coveted UK winners title. If he succeeds, he will join ŠKODA service and technical staff from all over the world in Barcelona next year, where they will compete for international titles and up to £2,500 in vouchers.

JCB Group Managing Director, Jonathan Bischoff said: “As a group, we are extremely passionate about providing the best value, help and customer service across the board”.

“We are very proud of Jon’s achievement; we wish him the best of luck in the head-to-head and look forward to hearing about the experience.”

Our reputation in the UK motor industry is outstanding and we are always looking for outstanding people to join our team.
