Join our Tweed Heads Nissan franchise and create a real career within one of area’s most respected auto groups, SouthCoast Automotive!
Whether you are looking for a career change or product change this is the opportunity you have been waiting for. We are currently looking to expand our sales team for the Nissan franchise and also welcome applications across our entire product offering.
Join a company that operates many dynamic automotive businesses in the centre of Tweed Heads and give yourself career opportunities with product variety and promotion potential unmatched in the entire South Coast region.
This is your opportunity to remodel your sales career and be working in the automotive environment you have always wanted to be in!
Maybe you’re tired – dead tired – of selling widgets or washing machines or standing in a superstore but love the consumer interaction. Or perhaps you’ve got other skills, understand technology but your knowledge isn’t valued and your day dull and repetitive. Or you want to get off the tools and do something with more variety and challenge?
The answer is join the high value consumer market of new car sales, which is imbedded in the latest in technology and can give you the sort of financial future you’ve dreamed of.
However, without training and support selling is far from easy; the survival rate of people starting in high value sales roles is less than 10% within two years. Whilst for those that are suited to selling and are nurtured from the outset the rewards are spectacular.
Why is this?
Think about it, you’re new to high value selling and you’re trying to convince a customer that what may be the largest transaction this year and will impact their daily existence for years to come should be handed over to a rookie with nothing more than your bubbly personality. These customers are understandably wary and attuned to any wrong signal.
Too often rookies are thrown in the deep end; given little more than product specifications and an old contact list and left to get on with it ALONE. Without any training they struggle through the work watching buyers walk out without a glimmer of engagement or spend hours prospecting continuously hearing:”you’re who?”
SO WHAT ARE WE OFFERING TO ENSURE YOUR SUCCESS?
High Quality Personalised and Market Specific Training
We have been successful as a group because of our multi-levelled and structured approach to training and professional development. Dealing as we are with technologically innovative brands we have access to the manufacturers’ brilliant product knowledge and resources so that you will really understand these beautiful cars and be a real product ambassador.
Then to hone your people skills, we conduct regular in-house training sessions supplemented by bringing in specialist trainers for advanced sales development. All the while you will report to, and be mentored by, one of the new car franchise sales managers. We don’t just make it up as we go – we have a plan for success.
Nissan and Mazda cars hold a great market position: they represent leading technology, consistency and performance while still being within reach of most people. They both offer a complete range of vehicles ranging from sub-small fuel misers to performance saloons, people movers and four wheel drive adventure vehicles; all of this with edgy and contemporary styling.
SouthCoast Automotive are able to offer a one stop service: in-house we have new cars, used cars, service, parts and finance. This means that you never have to risk a customer walking away because of finance or their trade in. Our excellent service centre means that we offer a genuine comprehensive after sales service which builds customer relationships into the future.
Our businesses are sharp and strategically located in the bustling heart of the Tweed Heads business district. Our sales presence is supported by a modern, well organised and easy to navigate website which showcases our leading deals to best effect, and an extensive presence in social media.
Our Mazda showroom has recently been transformed with the latest modern design to the demanding standards of a high profile dealership. This transformation is due to start shortly for the Nissan facilities to give us a state of the art facility across both of our product ranges.
If you know a Nismo from a gismo you will already be aware that Nissan is returning to V8 Supercar racing. This will add a lot of excitement to the brand locally and combined with Nissan’s announced expansion to their passenger product range will make Nissan an even greater brand to work with.
Within the SouthCoast Automotive group we have our own personal connection with the racing V8 Super Cars fraternity with a race team that competes in Dunlop Development Series. We are also looking forward to some close quarters interactions doing promotions and socials days with the Nissan racing PR machine – it’s a tough business!
Is there a better way to build a sales career than this? We don’t think so!
Having been established as a local back in 1998 SouthCoast Automotive believe in giving back to the local community – after all our team are all a part of it and share the benefits of the lifestyle and market on offer here.
We are proud sponsors of the Cudgen Rugby League, Tweed Valley Equestrian Club and Kingscliff Swim Club as well as Crime Stoppers. We were also privileged to be able to provide a food distribution van for “You Have A Friend” – a local support group for homeless people.
We love being involved in these community groups and Tweed Heads and Gold Coast people know who we are.
