Job Description

Selling prestigious Jaguar Land Rover vehicles requires extensive product knowledge and a passion for the brand. On our Apprentice Programme you will learn how to quickly identify a customer’s needs and interests, promote the features and benefits of vehicles and negotiate sales. The skills attained on the programme will last a lifetime.

Responsibilities

What will the apprentice be doing?

The Vehicle Sales Assistant Apprenticeship Programme is geared toward training the right candidate to become a qualified Vehicle Sales Assistant. But what does a Vehicle Sales Assistant actually do?

Vehicle Sales Assistants or vehicle salespeople are responsible for selling new and used vehicles.

Duties commonly include:

·       Greeting customers, discussing their needs and advising them on the most suitable vehicle

·       Arranging test drives

·       Negotiating sale and trade-in prices

·       Working out finance arrangements and packages, which may include organising registration plates, road tax and delivery of vehicles

·       Highlighting any additional products relevant to the customer

·       Processing orders and completing relevant paperwork, which may include carrying out stock checks using manufacturers’ databases

·       Updating customers on the progress of orders and contacting potential customers to update them about new vehicles and deals

·       Updating stock lists

·       Managing advertising and updating the website

·       Keeping the forecourt and cars clean and tidy

·       Providing potential customers with relevant literature and information

·       Inspecting vehicles pre- and post- sale

·       Attending auctions

We are looking for an enthusiastic, hardworking individual to join our team and embark on a long-term career, with excellent earning and progression opportunities once you complete your apprenticeship.

In larger organisations you may work as part of a team, specialising in one aspect of selling. In smaller organisations you may be responsible for all aspects of vehicle sales.

 

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

As well as employment in our retailer, you will be given the training and support you need to develop both personally and professionally.

Using a combination of classroom-based training, e-learning, practical training and application of learning, you will be guided by your trainers and personal mentor along to the road to success.

This apprenticeship combines off-the-job training with on-the-job learning, and you will be supported every step of the way.

On successful completion of the one-year programme you will receive the following:

·       Level 2 Customer Service Practitioner Standard

·       Jaguar Land Rover specific certifications

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

There are lots of opportunities to develop your career within our expanding Retailer Network. Once qualified, the earning potential for a Sales Assistant is commission based, so it is well worth considering the future opportunities that lay beyond the apprenticeship. Your early development is carefully mapped through your Apprenticeship journey with your learning focused toward achieving an industry recognised qualification. Embedded within your training are the Jaguar Land Rover global training materials. This is the grounding for your future development within the network and our Learner Management System, Excellence will guide you through your short, medium and long term career path.
