Our parent company, Pendragon PLC, has launched what we believe to be an industry-leading graduate scheme for 2014.
As the UK's biggest motor retailer, Pendragon are looking for exceptional graduates with the right attitude. People who are determined to drive their own success.
The graduate scheme is different to most in that it is completely linear. While you will experience different roles during the programme, there is only one clear goal: to become a Leader in our business, and the dedicated Group Learning and Development team will support you from day one.
The 3 core stages:
Stage 1: This involves meeting people from around the business, understanding our processes and getting to know the company. The aim is to get you started as a sales executive in one of our dealerships as soon as possible.
Stage 2: You'll have learned everything you need to know about selling cars, and you will move up to a Business Manager position. Finance and Insurance training will be provided, with an online training portal available to you as well.
Stage 3: This stage is all about shaping you into a leader. Shadowing senior team members will be important, and by taking part in advanced assessments you will complete a Leadership and Management qualification; at which point you will then be ready to take on the role of Sales Leader.
The rewards package is simply fantastic. There is a £21k salary, a potential 3k bonus and a car allowance - and this is just the start! Once all 3 stages are complete, the potential is there for a £50k salary. Once the ultimate goal is achieved - to become a Dealer Principal - you could be earning between £70-120k within just a few years.
It is a nationwide scheme and there are dealership placements available in Glasgow, Yorkshire, Humberside and the Midlands. There is support available to candidates if relocation is necessary.
