Next week (Tuesday 3 February), JCT600, one of the UK’s largest privately owned motor retailers, is hosting a careers event at its BMW Bradford dealership to give potential employees an insight into the company and the 50 positions currently available at its dealerships around the Bradford, Leeds and York areas.
The Yorkshire-based family business is currently recruiting for a wide variety of roles from sales positions to service department personnel and technicians. Taking place from 6-9pm at JCT600’s BMW dealership on Sticker Lane, the informal recruitment evening will include a presentation giving an overview of JCT600 followed by a one-to-one chat with a line manager to explain more about the role and opportunities.
“We currently have a diverse choice of positions across our 47 dealerships and we’re keen to talk to both people with experience in the motor industry and also those who are thinking of a career change,” explains Katie Saunders, HR director of JCT600. “With almost 50 dealerships and a workforce of more than 2,000 people, there is a huge choice of roles on offer and we can provide fantastic opportunities for progression.
“In addition to well-known positions in sales, after sales and administration, we are also looking for the right people to fill our newer roles of showroom hosts and ‘product geniuses’. Rolling out across our dealerships, we are recruiting enthusiastic, customer-focussed people to act as showroom hosts, greeting customers and directing them to colleagues who can best help them. In addition, our ‘product geniuses’ are the first point of contact for customers needing in-depth advice about the right car for them.”
Ms Saunders adds: “Despite our size, JCT600 has retained its family values and prides itself on looking after colleagues. We are committed to being ‘the best place to work’ and have internal development programmes in place to enable every member of the team to grow with us.”
