Olivia said; “It’s great to have been given this excellent opportunity to learn additional skills and gain experience.  Selling cars is what I’ve always wanted to do.”

Olivia’s career with Jennings began as an Apprentice and within one year she was taken on the books full-time. 

As a sales executive, her new responsibilities will include contributing towards achieving monthly and quarterly new and used car sales objectives set out by Kia Motors, liaising with existing and potential customers, delivering vehicles to customers and attending regular training courses to learn about and maintain product knowledge.

The recent job role change has created another full-time opportunity for 40-year-old, Louise Perry, from Stockton, who has stepped into Olivia’s previous role as sales administrator at the dealership.

Working within the busy sales administration department, Louise will be responsible for taxing new and used vehicles, checking vehicle stock, liaising with customers, as well as invoicing and filing.

Horse owner and equestrian sport enthusiast, Louise, who is also a qualified horse riding instructor, brings more than 12 years’ sales administration experience.  Prior to joining Jennings Kia, Louise worked as a receptionist at a local Veterinary Centre, as well as gaining experience at the group’s Leeds-based Harley-Davidson dealership, and prior to that, at the former Newcastle Harley-Davidson dealership.

Steven Flack, franchise manager at Jennings Kia in Stockton, said; “Olivia’s recent job role change is a perfect example of the many opportunities available to staff. 

“We’re also delighted to be welcoming Louise on board, who has a wealth of experience and knowledge in sales administration.”
