Working as part of an eight-strong sales team, the latest recruits will be responsible for selling the new Mazda model line-up, in addition to quality used cars to customers. Other duties include contributing towards monthly and quarterly sales objectives set out by the manufacturer, in addition to liaising with existing and prospective purchasers, delivering cars to customers, attending training courses to keep up-to-speed with new products and product knowledge and ensuring the company’s award-winning customer service is delivered at all times.

James Chorlton, franchise manager at the Jennings Mazda dealership, said; “We are delighted to welcome both Rachel and Christopher on board.  Their recruitment will play a pivotal role in securing new and used sales at the dealership.

“They are joining the business at a very exciting and busy time, with the official launch of the all-new CX-5 – Mazda’s latest mid-size SUV model - scheduled to take place at the end of this month.” 

Rachel brings with her five years of experience having previously worked in sales for a courier service and, prior to that, for a major mobile phone and internet provider.

At the age of 16, the former West Redcar Comprehensive School pupil completed a two-year GNVQ in Business Studies at Redcar and Cleveland College, prior to embarking on a three-year Apprenticeship in Business Administration/IT at the college, and later working as a college and library learning assistant.  Rachel has also gained experience as an administrator at Redcar & Cleveland Adult Learning Services.   

Rachel said; “I needed a new and fresh challenge.  To be given this excellent opportunity to learn new skills and product knowledge with the North East’s longest established and well respected motor dealer group, is fantastic.”

Meanwhile, Christopher a time-served chemical process operator, joins the car dealership after gaining experience as an energy consultant at a call centre in Hartlepool.

Christopher left Sacred Heart Secondary Catholic Voluntary Academy in Redcar after completing his GCSEs and later went on to study towards AS Levels in Business Economics and ICT at Prior Pursglove College in Guisborough.

The dedicated duo will receive in-house training, in addition to regularly attending training courses organised through the manufacturer in order to learn about new product launches, as well as keeping up-up-to-speed with the existing model range.

The Jennings Mazda dealership sells the entire new Mazda model line-up, with everything including the Mazda2, Mazda3, CX-3, MX-5, CX-5 and Mazda6.
