A major motoring company is creating 30 new jobs as part of significant expansion.

Well-known Frank Keane BMW is rolling out a substantial recruitment campaign in line with plans to expand its BMW and MINI operations at its Naas Road outlet.

The business is investing in facilities and staff to meet anticipated customer demand for electric, hybrid and e-mobility services.

A new facility will allow for further servicing capacity, vehicle storage, customer car parking and electric charging facilities.

The “extensive recruitment drive” already under way, and those lucky enough to be chosen will be given comprehensive training.

Hand-in-hand with that goes the opportunity to progress their careers in positions in sales, after-sales, management, marketing, administration and more.

All levels of motor technicians (from apprentices to qualified technicians), service advisers and warranty administrators are being sought as part of the campaign.
