Sales

Buying a car is one of the largest purchases someone will make in their lifetime so our Sales Advisors are specifically trained to make the experience and process as easy and enjoyable as possible

As a Sales Advisor you will guide each customer through their purchase from picking the most suitable model, arranging test drives and setting up finance options to the all important handover once the car has been delivered to the showroom.

Full training will be given through our bespoke sales induction programme so you don’t have to have prior experience in the motor industry. We welcome applications from people who have proved their sales ability in another industry and demonstrate a determination to succeed. If you have a passion for cars, have great people skills and are looking for a long and rewarding career, we’d love to talk to you.
