The dealership, in London Road, Alvaston, has been open for two years, during which time it has seen a huge rise in sales.
To meet the increased demand, Chris Newnham and Brandon Thorpe have been hired as apprentice sales executives.
Sales Manager Kayley Bailey said: ‘I am thrilled to offer this opportunity to two local young men who have earned apprentice roles here at Holt Mitsubishi. The two of them will study while they are working, with a view to gaining full-time permanent employment here at the end of the 12 months.
‘We wanted to support young people and this is an opportunity for them to learn about a role they perhaps might not have been able to gain experience in elsewhere.’
Chris, 22, a former restaurant manager from Smalley, said: ‘I wanted a new challenge and I’m so excited to get this opportunity. Every day has been different so far and I have enjoyed every minute of it.’
Brandon, 17, from Mickleover, added: ‘This is something I have always wanted to do. I had struggled to find an apprenticeship in this area so I’m really pleased. It’s the perfect job for me.’
