14/06 * - Car Buyer    Location: Ealing Greater London Jobs

Key points: Do you love cars? Do you know cars? As a candidate, are you a good negotiator and excellent communicator? Then this could be the right job for you The prospective employer are new and used car finders. Car resourcers. They are not a dealership. They work for their clients to source whatever vehicle they are seeking to employ whether it be a FIat or Ferrari, Peugeot or Pontiac, Volkswagen or Volvo, Aston Martin or Audi, Mitsubushi or McLaren, BMW, Bugatti or Bentley. They managethe hassle of the traders, dealers, private sellers and make sure that the cars their clients end up driving away are in good order, and at a great price. They charge fees for their service and often save their clients more than the fees in great savings through their industry knowledge, trade agreements and contacts. Based in Ealing, west London, they were established 10 years ago with one goal - to allow ANYBODY to get a fair deal on buying a new or used car. Everything they do revolves around this principle and their clients are typically people who do not feel comfortable buying a car themselves because they fear they will either end up with a bad car, a bad deal… or both. Additionally, some of their clients are busy professionals who just do not have the time to source a car for themselves. Their goal is always to secure the best possible car at the best possible price without the client doing ANY of the work. They are seeking to employ a passionate person to join their team as a permanent car resourcer / car buyer for the company. They need someone who can complete a very comprehensive car search given the specific criteria set by their clients. The right candidate will need to search out every car available in the UK ask with the dealers or sellers of these cars to ensure that they are of the best possible quality and negotiate on the price. After that the employee will need to pick the best 3 to 4 cars, and put them into an easily-readable shortlist. Don’t worry, they’ve been doing this for a while and have processes in place to help you through and can even offer some tips on how best to negotiate. But it’s important to be aware that around 50% of your time will be spent on the telephone to car dealers and sellers and so you have to know that the employee will enjoy this. In addition some of your time will involve the less exciting, but crucial administration work. This will involve a variety of tasks such as car data checks, organising supplemental work on the cars you find, invoicing and more basic office management tasks. The person we are seeking to employ should have the following skills… in this order too: 1) The Candidate must be a car nut The whole team is car-obsessed. But as well as being happy to talk about Ferraris, Bentleys and classic Mustangs, you need to have a genuine love for all cars… even the Volkswagen Polo (of which they source quite a few). 2) Great communicati ..........
