Sales Negotiator - 100% Remote
You are a personable outgoing vehicle consignor with a passion for classic cars and proven track record in an automotive sales environment. You have no issues picking up the phone to call potential clients, asking people to part with their vehicles at auction, or simply gathering feedback on our services. You are detail oriented in your work and able to follow a process and record interactions within a CRM. If you have some experience consigning vehicles from trade customers that would be a bonus.
About the role
You will start by reaching out to your existing contacts and prospecting new leads from customers who have classified ads on our site and trying to get them to list their vehicle on our auction platform. You will manage your vehicles through all stages of the pipeline and ensure customers receive the best possible service. Whilst previous classic car auction experience is highly desirable, full training will be given to candidates who demonstrate strong sales skills and are hungry to succeed.
About us www.carandclassic.com
Car & Classic is one of the largest automotive marketplaces in the world. We’re lucky to have thousands of user generated listings submitted monthly with content gems from James Bond’s Aston DB5 to Elvis Presley’s Cadillac. The site is old, launched in 2005 but under new, VC-backed ownership since 2018 and on an exciting triple-digit growth journey to bring classic vehicle transactions online.
Our culture is incredibly important to us. We’re lucky enough to have built the team from scratch with a focus on enjoying the day-to-day, diversity, inclusion and high performance. Despite being an entirely distributed business we build strong connections as colleagues and have created a fun and high-performing culture.
Whilst the team is only 95 people now we expect to double over the next 12-months. We’re looking for a Sales Negotiator that has good, relevant experience and wants to make their mark in a rapid growth business where they can make a real difference, whilst enjoying the environment and culture.
Finally, you don’t have to love cars to work here (and lots of our team don’t) but for those who do this is an incredible opportunity to combine your passion and professional lives – we look forward to hearing from you.
