We are currently expanding our business and are now offering an exciting opportunity to join the team as a General Manager in the Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire area, as well as other role opportunities along the M1 corridor. If you are an experienced General Manager looking for a new opportunity then we want to hear from you!

Reporting to the Divisional Director, this role offers the right candidate the opportunity to join a highly retailer group.

In addition to remuneration of £100-125k OTE, which is uncapped, we can offer a fantastic range of benefits in an environment that offers career development where you will be given autonomy, support, and a platform to succeed. These include:

  • Company car + fuel

As a General Manager, you will have overall accountability for people and financial performance for the dealership. With support from your Divisional Director and corporate support functions, you will:

  • Lead, manage and motivate a team of automotive professionals, ensuring the dealership is adequately resourced
  • Drive a high performance culture, ensuring performance is rewarded and underperformance is managed
