Our client is the sole importer of a top Japanese brand and has the focus and vision to continually introduce new and innovative ideas to lead the market in every aspect of the retail motor business.

General Manager:
The position will suit a forward thinking General Manager with a proven track record gained in a Japanese or volume car dealership. You will take full control of a business currently selling over 2000 new vehicles per year and providing the highest levels of Customer Care and After Sales practices, all supported by a team of some 180 motivated professionals.

Financial competence is essential. You will have full responsibility for P & L particularly in the areas of advising the Board on future Investment, and associated projected return. Plus the control of all day-to-day operating budgets and bottom-line objectives for the franchises and developing facilities.

A thorough knowledge of motor trade daily operating controls, computerised systems, financial objectives and CSI is essential, combined with ‘Hands-On’ leadership, strong communication skills and an analytical mind to negotiate sales and performance targets, strategies and procedures with the franchise principals.

Service Manager:
With volumes increasing, there is an opportunity for a highly capable leader with strong people managing skills and the knowledge and credibility demanded to manage a busy volume car Service Centre. This is a hands-on position, enabling you to take full responsibility for actions in all day- to- day activities of the Service Workshop and Customer Reception area.

You will control the P & L Budgets, Daily Operational Controls and the achievement of workshop targets, so you will need to have proven leadership, sound organisational, man-management and technical skills.

The company is investing heavily to continually improve Service facilities along with a never-ending drive to exceed their own stringent policy of Customer Care Excellence.

Decision-making interviews are planned in London, first week of January.
If you have the drive and enthusiasm to start 2007 with a really exciting challenge, please call me right now and send full career details to.
