Are you as driven as we are?

The Car People is a market leading, mould-breaking car supermarket with huge retail locations in Yorkshire and Lancashire. In just seven years, we have grown to become one of the largest car retailers in the UK. This year, we will sell over 16,000. To complement our growth, we’re looking to enhance our team with individuals who have the drive to succeed with us.

We are looking for an experienced, confident and determined manager who is thoroughly sales-focussed and committed to achieving results, to manage the team at our Manchester site. Experience in leading a large team in a high volume environment is essential.

In 2007, our 100-strong Ashton based team delivered 4,000 cars, and we’re now ready for our next phase of growth. To do this, we need someone who fully understands the mechanics of car sales, as well as people motivation and leadership. Our way of selling is unique, so you’ll need to be open minded whilst very customer-focussed in your approach. Reporting directly to the board of directors, you will share their passion and enthusiasm for car retailing. We are looking for the best of the best and will provide a competitive package in line with that individual’s experience.

To help develop our already successful customer-facing teams, we are looking to add a forward-thinking and proactive Sales Trainer to our team. A background in the motor trade is essential, as well as a full understanding of customer handling, sales skills and effective training delivery.

Whilst this role covers our whole business, the majority of training will take place at our Wakefield site.
