Toyota Computer Services is a subsidiary of Toyota GB – the sales and marketing arm of Toyota and Lexus in the UK. A profit centre in its own right, it provides sophisticated IT solutions to the Toyota and Lexus Centre network. Now we need someone with a high level of commercial acumen who will relish this chance to effectively run their own business with the backing of the world’s second largest vehicle manufacturer.
Reporting to the Director of Finance & Systems at Toyota, you’ll lead a 50-strong team to deliver a quality service to the network. Your objectives will be to exploit commercial opportunities, respond to changes in the marketplace and implement strategies to generate income through our products, training and support. This will entail managing a range of supplier relationships, and interfacing with Centre Principals and senior figures at Toyota.
To make the impact we seek, you’ll need a proven track record of managing a customer-focused business working in the field of IT systems. You will have excellent influencing and negotiation skills, and be an inspirational people manager with experience of leading a large and diverse team. Knowledge of dealer management systems would be an asset, as would experience of operating in a franchised environment.
In return for driving the business forward, you’ll be rewarded with a comprehensive package that includes contributory pension, BUPA healthcare, 25 days’ holiday and a choice of car schemes.
