A rare opportunity to join a very well established and recognised specialist car Retail Group, as Sales Manager at a key location in Cornwall. Overseeing a team selling circa 300 new and 300 used cars per annum, the sales consultants are highly rated but need strong and experienced leadership and direction. As the vast majority of customers in this area are private retail individuals, rather than corporate companies or SME’s, coaching the sales team to spend time with individuals to help them make the correct considered decisions, is vitally important.


We require well honed skills gained in a structure volume or specialist car business, with an emphasis on used car sales and marketing. Using a Kerridge based DMS system, both the Brand and the Dealership require impeccable interpersonal and presentation skills, together with entrepreneurial flair and influential leadership ability.


This role is open to applicants who already have Sales Management expertise, and would not be the correct move for an inexperienced people manager. Therefore, maturity, track record of Sales Management and a real ability to take productivity to the next level is critically important.


Locally based individuals or applicants living further afield are welcome to apply for this role, and shortlisting will take place before the Christmas period.





1. Are you an experienced and well rounded Sales Manager, looking for a career move in the South West area?

2.Can you lead, inspire and motivate a medium sized sales team to sell more units, retaining customer satisfaction and profitability?

3.Are you the correct cultural fit for a highly professional luxury brand and privately owned Retail Group?

4.Can you work in the South West of England, or easily relocate to Cornwall for your next career move?

5.Are you particularly experienced in Used Vehicle marketing, buying and sales?
