Samantha Anscombe, a Parts Advisor at Sytner and one of the winners at the Autocar’s Great Women Rising Stars awards has become the first Ambassador for Drive My Career, the employment initiative developed by the NFDA to help dealers attract and retain candidates.
Samantha started as an apprentice with Sytner in 2017 and won Mercedes-Benz’s apprentice of the year in 2020. She has also just started a university degree course in psychology and counselling.

Commenting on her new Ambassador role, Samantha said: “I am beyond grateful for the opportunity Drive My Career has offered me. Being an Ambassador of something I am so passionate about is very exciting, I cannot wait to learn more about how the other side of this industry works and I look forward to starting to collaborate with the team”.

NFDA Chief Executive Sue Robinson added: “Our success stories have been instrumental in promoting the automotive industry to young people and we look forward to developing our new Ambassador Scheme to give further exposure to our colleagues’ inspiring careers. A huge welcome to Samantha as our first Ambassador and thanks to Sytner for their continued support”.

Other young people who have previously collaborated with Drive My Career and their line managers or HR colleagues will be approached to also join as Ambassadors.
