    To become a Petrol Station Attendant, you'll need:

    to be polite and helpful to customers
    to follow health and safety rules
    to pay attention to detail
    a clear speaking voice for serving through a hatch

    To work alone at a petrol station, you must be 18 or over to comply with petrol licensing regulations.

    You might be able to enter through an Intermediate Level Apprenticeship in retail.

    Training is mainly on the job. You might be able to work towards work-based qualifications.
    What will I be doing?

    Dealing with customers is a key part of this job. You watch a computer screen that logs the amount of fuel being taken from each petrol pump. You can stop the flow to any pump if you need to. You will need to be alert to any drivers who try to drive off without paying for their fuel, or those who try to use a mobile phone on the forecourt.

    Attendants deal with payments, offer any promotional vouchers (for things like gifts and discounts) and sell tokens for other services, such as a car wash. You take payments in cash as well as by debit or credit card, and you deal with loyalty cards. You stock shelves and keep outside display areas filled with things like newspapers, flowers, and de-icer or barbecue charcoal.

    In attended service stations, you go on to the forecourt to serve customers and to promote products such as screen wash. Petrol Station Attendants might also have to clean and tidy the pumps and the forecourt area. Some might carry out routine inspections of equipment such as the car wash and the air lines used to pump up car tyres.

    Safety and security are very important in this work. Fuel is highly flammable so strict safety rules must be followed. Attendants put sand on to petrol that has been spilt. Some deal with fuel deliveries by putting traffic cones around the tanker and checking fuel meters for the underground tanks.

    Attendants are responsible for the security of money on the premises and can be involved in cashing up at the end of the shift.

    Some duties, especially for those working at attended service stations, mean that you could be outside in all types of weather.

    If the petrol station is open at night, you might have to serve customers through a hatch for security reasons. In smaller petrol stations, you might work alone at night. Some wear a uniform.
