Head of Business
Chelmsford and Colchester

Taking full leadership and management responsibility for these highly successful and well established dealerships, your key objective will be to drive the performance of each department in order to ensure that excellent customer service is provided and all financial targets are achieved.

We are seeking a dynamic leader with a proven track record in developing Sales and/or Aftersales departments. The Chelmsford dealership is planning a relocation and renovation in the next couple of years, so ideally we are looking for someone to lead the dealership team and develop the management team in readiness for a bigger, more illustrious centre.

You will be hands on in nature, financially aware, have effective communication skills, a keen eye for detail and the ability to negotiate at all levels. You will be looking to further your career within a financially secure and progressive organisation which values and rewards talented people who are highly engaged and dedicated. You will relish achieving results through your entrepreneurial spirit and your ability to create a high performing team and a great working environment. You might even feel restricted with your current organisation and dream of working for an organisation that will give you the space to achieve your full potential. If you recognise yourself in the description above, we want to meet you to discuss how you can help Group1 achieve our exciting objectives in the UK and how we can help you achieve complete job satisfaction and career development.

Whilst prestige experience will be a benefit, attitude and character are of more importance to us. So if you have ever wanted to lead a business which represents the best automotive manufacturer today, this is your opportunity.

We offer a highly competitive remuneration package that is designed to attract and retain the best applicant together with significant career development opportunities.
