Sales Manager Hyundai @ Pickering’s Townsville

  • Manage sales team of 8 in flagship showroom completed 2016 + service team 2017
  • Drive the latest in sales systems technology with on-going training & support
  • Join a company large enough for real career growth to GSM then DP or diversify

Great career opportunity to join an innovative growing company, lead a very successful team, great brand & a brand new showroom and then grow to GSM.

Head up our great Pickering’s Auto Group Hyundai team of sales professionals at our brand new Hyundai showroom in the heart of Townsville.

If you have been managing a team for a while for a single brand dealer or in a family company where there is nowhere left to go but down this is your opportunity to join a company with unlimited career and financial growth potential. While most dealerships have struggled over the last ten years to maintain profitability Pickering’s have been on a steady growth path with many stages still ahead.

This is an opportunity to establish a position in a company small enough to know who are but large and experienced enough to offer real potential for growth and diversity in your career.

This role offers real management growth within the Hyundai team as well as growth in senior management opportunities within the Pickering’s group. On day one you will be managing a team of 5 sales people plus three post sales staff including Aftercare sales, Finance sales and a detailer. During 2017 your immediate team will expand to include a dedicated Hyundai service team on this site.

You will be driving all aspects of the sales planning and stock management systems. We pride ourselves on the quality and innovation of our systems that recognise and enforces concepts leading to customer loyalty and referrals. While we expect you to understand these processes from your current role we will provide you full training in the details of our systems.

In the role of sales mentor and trainer, you will be supporting the sales team on a daily basis to ensure they reach sales and profit targets as well as plan to evolve their skills through implementing sales training and providing one-on-one mentoring.  To keep your own product and sales skills current you will be required to attend Manufactures training both on the system and on location.


Pickering’s Auto Group is has grown from one location to thirteen across Northern QLD representing eight manufacturers because of our commitment to technology and innovation and our ability to nurture talented staff. Starting with a structured approach to sales and product training, every member of the team receives personalised mentoring from a General Sales Manager with over 30 years’ automotive sales experience.

Pickering’s Auto Group is that rare thing in the 21st Century automotive trade: a large private company. Being a dominant member of the Townsville motor industry since the 1990’s means having the comfort, security and confidence of a top of the range SUV while, being a private company, we can turn on a dime like a City micro spotting the fast track through the traffic. So we have the resources to seize emerging opportunities to ensure our corporate growth, yet focused enough within to ensure the good work of all team members is recognised.


Hyundai – a growth brand

Celebrating 30 years in Australia in 2016 Hyundai is now Australia’s fourth largest, by units sold, automotive brand. Uniquely it is a manufacturer with extensive growth plans including the recent launch of the luxury Genesis range and development of new cell technology. This gives you an impressive selling range from sub-small fuel misers to performance saloons, people movers and four-wheel drive adventure vehicles; all of this with edgy and contemporary styling.

State of the Art Showroom

Completed in September 2016 to the latest modern design to meet the demanding standards of a high-profile dealership. A beautiful space to work in equipped with the latest technology. This will have a dedicated Hyundai service facility completed early 2017 which will also be under your management.
