Trust is the glue of life. It's the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It's the foundational principle that holds all relationships.* Stephen Covey
As a Manager at Vertu you will be expected to build trust. Trust from your team in you. Trust from your customer in your team.
You will see from our website and from our recent results that we are a rapidly becoming one of the Country's leading automotive retailers. Employing over 5,500 colleagues we are now the 5th largest retail motor group in the UK and we will continue to expand as we drive our business forward. Our growth to date has been achieved through a combination of acquisition and business improvement in our current operations. We are very well placed in the market and are able to take advantage of the current economic backdrop to achieve our growth and performance objectives. Our success to date has been built on the ability for Trust to glue our business together – it enables you to move fast.
The role of our managers and their leadership abilities are critical in driving our Group forward. Yes, our managers are required to generate impressive results, they are responsible for the growth and development of the business and will be challenged to exceed profit targets, grow the business and achieve high customer satisfaction levels, however, they are expected to deliver this through their team by setting the vision, maintain their focus, driving the result, and developing their people in an atmosphere of Trust .
Our Managers are expected to be the best in the industry and as a successful and growing business we make no apologies for being highly selective in the calibre of new Managers joining our business.
The “non-negotiables” for any of our managers are drive, character, attitude, energy and talent. Relevant experience is obviously important but is not sufficient on its own as you will also need to demonstrate that you have used those attributes to achieve your goals in the past through your team.
