My client based in North Tyneside were one of the first companies to let people across the UK buy and sell a wide range of cars at auction, from budget runarounds to exotic imports.

At their first auction they sold 14 cars and generated proceeds of £2,300; today they sell more than one million vehicles annually and are Europe's largest vehicle remarketing company.

Their business is to handle the sale of vehicles on behalf of one group of customers - the vendors - and sell to another group - the buyers. Most of their customers are businesses: fleet operators; manufacturers; finance and leasing houses; rental companies; national authorities; and professionals from across the retail and wholesale motor industry.

The successful candidate will :

  • Have a strong administration background
  • Have proven experience in a relationship building role
  • Have strong communication skills
  • Some sales background/knowledge would be preferable but is not essential.
