Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 is an innovative online car buying company, based in Nottingham and we are now looking to recruit a Sales and Purcahsing Controller / Manager.
We could tell you that we are one of the fastest growing car buying companies in the UK, but that would be a cliche, wouldn't it? But we are a very unique organisation. We present our employees with unparallelled opportunities for personal growth and success. We are an entrepreneurial business, so words like "fast-paced", "uncompromising", "ambitious" and "outperform the competition" are not uncommon in team meetings. We mean business keeping our eyes open to things that really matter - the small victories that go unnoticed at most organisations. If there's one thing we hate, it's mediocrity. Our company epitomises pro-activity, excellence, passion, innovation, accountability and unyielding integrity.


We are looking for a skilled motor trade professional to join our growing business and management team. Managing a team of 4 buyers / brokers, you will be responsible for the following:
1. Recruiting, developing, driving, coaching and training a Team of 4 to achieve their volume and profitability objectives
2. Ensuring that the relevant activity KPI's are achieved
3. Developing a portfolio of effective trade partnerships to maximise profitability and stock turnover
4. Developing a sector-leading and effective Team ethos - we might not ever be the biggest but we can certainly be the best
5. Ensuring customer satisfaction throughout


This is a very hands-on role, tactical with some involvement in strategy as well. The right candidate will be able to demonstrate a proven track record of exceeding objectives, experience of people coaching / development / management; an ability to value cars accurately and to accurately identify and maximise dealing opportunities; a broad and in-depth experience and understanding of the use car market; high business and personal expectations and standards; a "success is not an option" work ethic. Would suit either a hands-on General Manager who has had enough of corporate politics or a hands-on Sales Manager or a Sales controller / Business Manager. We do not work Sundays and you would only be required to work every other Saturday. But we make up for the time off during the week!

To be considered for this position, please email your CV and Covering Letter to or by post to: Mark Rogers, Managing Director, c4-uk ltd T/A, Innovation House, Daleside Road, Nottingham, NG2 4DH.
