Description:

We are often asked how we get such nice staff in our dealerships, and the secret is that we employ nice people. Each of our dealerships enjoys a high degree of independence, so it is important that we recruit people who think like us and who enjoy the same things that we do.

In our business we currently employ over 100 full time staff. All of our staff are at different stages of development and experience. We also have a very strong belief in investing in future talent in fact over 10% of the work force are part of an apprentice scheme through Volkswagen Group.

One of the great things about working in our Dealerships is that you can follow a proper full-time professional career. We try to make the most of people's abilities, and our home-grown talent is invaluable in strengthening the values and culture we enjoy.

Fundamentally our customers are looking for an exceptional experience understanding this we have found that the right personality is more important than the right experience. Working in our dealerships is a multi-facetted career, and everyone has their individual strengths and weaknesses, but we imagine you’ll have a love of going the extra mile for customers and colleagues alike.

Most importantly, you’ll want to work together in a happy and effective team, and create a working environment where people enjoy coming to work. Of course, entrepreneurial business skills are useful as you’ll be negotiating with a multitude of different types of customers, and generally ensuring the business stacks up effectively – but we’re always on hand to help or advise as the need arises.

Most important of all of these, though, is that you’ll need to be a great personality who takes real pleasure in looking after people and making them happy.

We offer many benefits including, a contributory pension scheme, decent holidays, ongoing training and also up to 3 new cars per staff member that can be made available for family members that you can change every six months – and not forgetting the pleasure of working with some interesting and fun people in a dealership you can be proud of.

The recruitment process

 The first interaction you will have will be a short chat on the phone with someone from our management team. If that goes ok, you’ll be invited over to the office for a meeting. These are always a very relaxed, sharing-a-cup-of-coffee-on-the-sofa sort of affair, where we want to get to know the real you behind the interviewee.

The next step is to get you into one of our dealerships for a taster day, one of which will hopefully be a busy session, to see how you fit in with the crew, to ascertain your skill levels, and to see what you’re like in a busy environment. We’ll get feedback from those around you, and if it all goes well and you want to take things further (because after all this is as much about you appraising us, as us appraising you), you will be made an offer.

 

From there on, it all depends on individuals and applying for opportunities as they arise. This recruitment process may seem a tad drawn out, but we are very careful to keep our culture intact, and getting the right people in the first place is vital.

Enquire About This Job

Barlow Motors Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Barlow Motors Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.

You can check this on the FCA Register by visiting the www.fca.org.uk or by contacting the FCA direct on 0800 111 6768.
