I have spent over 20 years as a car sales executive, I initially heard of LockFit through an internet search.
I joined LockFit in 2018 because I wanted to be own boss, set my own hours, I did not want somebody else telling me what I must do and when.
The initial training was brilliant a spent 1 week in the training centre with a locksmith that has over 25 years experience, all my training was hands on so I could learn and get a feel for every part.
I would say to someone looking to get started as a Locksmith to talk to the team at LockFit. If you want to be your own boss and you enjoy hands on practical jobs, then it’s a fantastic opportunity
