The successful candidate;

They will be target orientated and take pride in achieving results not just for themselves, but for the department and dealership too. A true team player is needed in this role as the sales team is relatively small, so an ability to work together and help each other out will be necessary. Above all, the successful candidate will have a positive attitude towards car sales and customer service, and have a burning desire to work within the motor trade and start a career that can flourish.

The remuneration for your hard work will be a trainee’s wage initially – a basic salary of circa £10,000 per annum plus a commission structure to work to with a realistic trainee on target earning of around £25,000. Full training and support will be given and time to learn and grow ability and potential too. The reality of this role is that the reward for hard work and commitment is the opportunity to progress into a full sales role in future. There is also a company car supplied after a qualifying period too.
