Close Brothers to 'auction off' account managers for charity

Dealers are being given the opportunity to put their Close Brothers Motor Finance account manager to work thanks to a charity auction for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Account managers in the north will be put to work cleaning cars or making tea for the dealership team after being auctioned off as part of a series of activities being held in a week-long charity event involving its 15 offices across the country.

Dealers are invited to submit bids and the highest bidder will be given the services of a Close Brothers account manager for a day.

Close Brothers chief executive James Broadhead said: “Our teams spend a lot of time with our dealers, working closely together throughout the year.

“Now our dealer partners get to show them who is boss and put them to work. 

“Whether it's cleaning the cars on the forecourt, completing the dreaded filing or even just making the tea for the team, our dealer partners are free to command – and all for a great cause.”

The charity auction is just one of a number of events being held between May 16th and May 20th.

Branches will compete against one another to raise the most money with a variety of activities planned including a Directors’ Tennis Match in Doncaster, a silent auction and a ‘Cycle to Work’ day where account managers will swap cars for pedal power as they visit their dealers.
