Typically, the CV summary includes details such as: professional education, previous car sales sector employment, commercial achievements, contact details, references and a short list of your hobbies and leisure preferences. Most car sales people's CVs include an opening statement that helps the car showroom manager or owner understand who you are and how you will add value to their team.

Who are the Key Employers in the Car Sales industry?

Many UK car showrooms were badly affected by the global recession and new sales appointments were put on hold. The car industry responded by offering heavy discounts on new vehicles and specifically targeting owners of ten year old vehicles to encourage them to trade-up with up to £2,000 off their new car purchase.

It is typical for car sales negotiators to work for fairly low base salaries and for their total package to be made up of a large percentage of commission. Car sale negotiators will earn commission on the sale of the vehicle and on the lease agreement, or loan finance they arrange for you.

Some of the Key Employers in the Car Industry include easily Recognisable Brands such as:

  • BMW
  • Chevrolet
  • Chrysler
  • Fiat
  • Ford
  • Jeep
  • Mercedes
  • Skoda

What Skills would Car Sales Employers Look for on Your CV?

In the car industry you must be prepared to listen to your customers to find out if the vehicle they want to buy, or you are trying to sell them, meets their budget and lifestyle needs. Anyone can save, or borrow, the money they need to buy a flash car but there's no point in selling someone a car they cannot afford to run.

The key skills that are required for a person who is looking for a sales negotiator role in the car industry are as follows:

  • Genuine interest in cars
  • Capacity to learn facts about the vehicles and make comparisons against similar cars from competitors
  • Ability to build trust and rapport with potential buyers
  • Ability to engage with motor-heads and less knowledgeable consumers
  • Excellent communication skills both written and verbal
  • Ability to handle objections sensitively based on your buyer's budgets and lifestyle requirements
  • Willing to work late hours to demonstrate cars in the evenings or at weekends
  • Great attention to detail as the role requires paperwork to be completed that is legally binding.
