Responsibilities

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

Vehicle Sales Executives or vehicle sales people 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

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.
