Why did you choose a Prima Ardelle Recruitment Business?
It was the perfect opportunity for me to stay in the Automotive industry and still be involved in a structured environment, but allow me the time I needed with my family.
What industry were you in before?
Automotive management within a main dealership
What made you take the plunge and change career?
It was a viable option for me as it still encompasses the same principles of a sales environment but without the long hours, I also like the fact you are rewarded by finding the perfect job for someone.
What initial training and support is there?
The initial training consisted of a week at the head office with classroom based learning and role play and then 1 week at your office setting up the IT systems and putting into practice what you had been taught the previous week. I found this to be very valuable as it gave a very good insight into all of the business.
What other benefits have transferred from your previous role?
People skills, computer skills, daily planning and target setting, understanding the use of processes, time management, closing and negotiating.
How much vacancy opportunity numbers and poundage have you picked up since opening?
