Great career opportunity! Not just another sales job. Room to build a successful sales career selling Holden, Hyundai, Subaru, Mitsubishi & Suzuki.

Join our Quayside Motors dealership in Lismore or Ballina and create a great career within one of the area’s most respected auto companies, the Crompton Automotive Group.

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 across our entire product range including Holden, Hyundai, Subaru, Mitsubishi and Suzuki; both new and used, at our Lismore and Ballina dealerships.

This is your opportunity to remodel your sales career, while working in the automotive environment you have always wanted to be in!


Afraid of getting stuck in the retail rut others are talking about? If you are over selling whitegoods or hum-drum consumer products and seeing your good efforts smashed by desperation sales, but you still love the consumer interaction, then coming to vehicle sales is perfect.

This is the answer for several reasons: it is a high value market, it embraces the latest technology, it’s global, almost everyone needs the product, and success in automotive sales 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 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.


Corporate strength, local commitment

The Quayside Motors dealerships in Lismore and Ballina, have a proud and incredibly successful local history dating back to the 1980’s, before becoming a member of Crompton Auto Group over ten years ago.

Crompton Automotive Group operates seven dealerships throughout the southern QLD and northern NSW region. This has allowed us to diversify across 13 brands giving us incredible buying power and financial stability.

2014 saw a new dealer principal join the group, an automotive sales professional with over 25 years’ experience. This gives us local decision-making flexibility within the strength of the bigger group. It will also give you the personal attention of a Dealer Principal, who is a seasoned professional, to ensure your sales career is revving right from the start.

High quality, personalised and market specific training

We have been successful as a group because of our multi-levelled and structured approach to training, as we are genuinely focused on the professional development of all staff. There are no tired, old sales tricks here. We have a strong ‘customer first’ culture that focuses on delivering to the customers’ needs first and foremost. We have always dealt with our clients with respect and integrity and they have rewarded us with their return business.

Dealing with technologically innovative brands, we have access to manufacturer’s extensive product knowledge and resources. This ensures your understanding of all these fantastic cars and that you become a real product ambassador.

Then, to strengthen 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, both the Sales Manager and Dealer Principal to help develop your skills.

We don’t just make it up as we go – we have a plan for your success.

Exciting products with a great Future

You will be offering over 30 models across 5 great brands. This includes everything from sub-small to family cars, performance saloons, people movers and four-wheel drives through to utilities and work vehicles. A huge range of product offerings, all unquestionably reliable, competitively priced and technologically advanced, that gives you the ability to connect with all generations of consumers.

With so many product options, you will never need to watch customers walk away because the car is ‘not quite what we were looking for’. What fabulous variety this gives you. No need to pigeon-hole yourself with us.

Add to this the fact that Holden is going through a fabulously exciting stage, repositioning itself in the world car market. While it is sad they are withdrawing local manufacturing, this will give us a fuller international product range with the best models from around the world. Establishing yourself as a successful sales person during 2014, will put you in a great position to benefit from the new Holden product profile in the future.

We are proud sponsors of several local sporting groups in both Lismore and Ballina, as well as providing a vehicle for the Westpac Rescue Lifesaver Helicopter service. We love being involved in these community groups.Is there a better way to build a sales career than this? We don’t think so!
