In order to be successful, you must have a proven track record of sales and performance, within a similar role. What you also need is unlimited confidence, resilience, drive, energy and talent. You will be well presented with a desire, character and attitude to succeed. You will have the ability to quickly establish and build rapport. You will also possess a clean driving licence and either be FCA approved or willing to be trained.
