A great brand needs great people

To achieve our ambitions we need outstanding individuals who can take pride in bringing our brand values to life, and make people feel special while maximising our business opportunities.

Following a final assessment you will achieve a nationally recognised sales qualification awarded by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI).
