Vacancy description

Imagine spending all day buying cars from a state of the art dealership.

Our Jaguar Land Rover dealership in Melksham has now enjoyed 2 years of success and to continue our journey, we are now looking for a Used Car Controller to join our growing Sales team.

Working with our Sales Managers and wider dealership, you will be more than just a Buyer. As well as increasing our used car portfolio, you will manage the preparation process of the vehicles, as well as using your analytical skills to learn how to spot a deal. You will also learn about the correct prices for cars, how to appraise them and identify their value, while gaining knowledge about every model with in the range.

We’ll give you great training and support in all of these areas, but you will need a good level of decision making and negotiation skills and the ability to navigate round an excel spreadsheet are key. Relationship building and stakeholder management will also be a big part of the role. You will be self-driven in your desire to take the next step and feel a real sense of belonging. 

There will be plenty of opportunity to develop in to the position with the opportunity to grow into a Used Car Sales Manager role in the future.

Whilst we always welcome applications from experienced Used Car Controllers, we also love to hear from individuals who are currently working within an Automotive Sales role and looking to progress into their next role. We believe in our leadership and training, allowing us to recruit for attitude and train for skill. The key attributes we look for are:

  • Influencing skills with the ability and confidence to convert enquiries to sales
  • Excellent customer management skills to build long lasting relationships
  • Professionalism, with a commitment to adhering to process and procedure
  • Individuals who demonstrate the values of PRIDE

We look forward to hearing from you.

An early application is advised.
No agencies please unless otherwise arranged.

We’re fortunate to receive a large response to our adverts every week. You’ll never receive an automated response from us – it’s something that we find too impersonal – and whilst we try to respond to every email, the amount of applications we receive sometimes makes that difficult. Therefore, if you don’t hear from us within 14 days, this means that unfortunately your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion. Please be assured we read every single one and if we think you might be relevant for a future role, we’ll keep your details on our file, and will arrange to contact you should a suitable vacancy arise in the future. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any feedback. Thank you.
