It doesn't matter if you've never worked in vehicle sales before. If you love meeting people, sharing your product or service knowledge and helping people make the right choices, then we'd love to hear from you.
Like many other sales and customer service positions, a role in vehicle sales is all about understanding the needs of customers and recommending specific products or services that match their requirements. At Hendy, we will help you become a true brand and product specialist, so you can guide customers along their journey to discovering their perfect vehicle, whether new or used.
We are offering much more flexible working hours to include 5 day working patterns, part-time opportunities and a maximum 8-hour working day. As for hard selling techniques these are also a thing of the past. Customers are now highly informed, creating a need for more personalised conversations. As a result, the role requires strong interpersonal skills and the ability to build relationships.
At Hendy Group we strive for 100% positive customer and colleague experience. As a member of one of our sales teams you are responsible for ensuring customers are given the best possible experience as soon as they walk into the showroom. Our Salespeople are professional and friendly with excellent people skills. They are an integral part of the sales process right from the initial enquiry through to test drives and handovers, all while surprising and delighting our customers.
Our industry is exciting and evolving and as we continue to pioneer into new technology, and new markets we can offer a unique experience for not only our customers, but our colleagues also. At Hendy, our people start with a job but have every opportunity to create a truly rewarding and progressive career, and if you would like to be part of this and you feel you have the tenacity, drive and commitment then we would like to hear from you.
We are proud of our learning and development hub in Portsmouth. The purpose-built Hendy Academy meets your development needs through workshops, coaching, online learning and on the job experience. Within the Academy, our advanced facilities and highly experienced training team support you every step of the way from your Induction programme through to programmes designed to set you up for success in your role at Hendy.
We recognise our investment in training enables skills development for everyone in order that we can be the very best at what we do. All our programmes are underpinned by our values and created in an environment that encourages shared learning and building strong relationships across the Group.
Having never worked in car sales before, Hendy has been absolutely fantastic in welcoming me into the business and giving me all the support and training I have needed to start and progress my career with them.
We have a range of benefits on offer to our colleagues, including annual leave that increases with service, company pension scheme, group life insurance and private health care. We have recently enhanced our maternity and paternity benefits and support our colleagues to ensure they can effectively balance their work and home life commitments. All colleagues have the opportunity to lease a new vehicle through our all-employee car scheme and for those eligible to a company car we partner with CBS solutions to provide a flexible car leasing scheme. We also offer a competitive finance rate on the purchase of a used car from Group stock, in addition to providing competitive rates on parts, tyres and servicing of vehicles for our colleagues.
As a Hendy colleague, you also have access to over 200 perks through Perkbox with hundreds of big brand discounts, a wellness hub packed with expert lifestyle and fitness classes, and premium rewards - all free for you to use.
Always on the lookout for talent, our colleagues can recommend a friend for employment at Hendy and receive up to £750... and if they recommend a friend to purchase a vehicle, they also receive a financial incentive.
Celebrating success and rewarding loyalty is underpinned by our Hendy values. Each month, we recognise excellence in customer service by awarding a member of the service advisor team for their great work. Our sales teams are incentivised and are eligible to take part in an incentive scheme that for the winners provides well deserved colleagues and their family an escape to an exotic luxury hide-away.
As testament to the loyalty of our colleagues, we are proud to say that we have over 5% of our colleagues who have worked with Hendy Group for over 25 years. Each year, we take our 25 year 'club' members and their partners on a day out. In recent years, this has included a day trip to the Isle of Wight, overnight accommodation, activities at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire, and a party at Hever Castle.
