Jennings Ford Direct, part of the Jennings Motor Group, has recruited a new member of staff at its Newcastle Road dealership.

Joanne Cook, 34, from Heworth in Gateshead, has been appointed as a part-time receptionist at the dealership.

Working as part of a team, Joanne’s role involves being responsible for incoming calls, filtering individual calls to relevant departments, distributing and communicating messages electronically and assisting with any administration duties, in addition to being the first point of contact for customers visiting the dealership.

Prior to joining the busy Jennings Ford Direct dealership, Joanne, who originally started her career as a hairdresser and dance instructor, spent a year working in a similar role for another motor dealer in the region and prior to that, took time out to bring up her family.

Joanne found out about the vacancy via Jennings Motor Group’s website which advertises jobs available across the company’s Ford, Mazda, SEAT and Kia branch network.

Joanne said; “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to embark on a career with one of the region’s longest established motor dealer groups.”

Welcoming Joanne on board, David Walker, general sales manager at Jennings Ford Direct, said; “Joanne is already proving to be an asset to the team.

“We are delighted to welcome such a keen and committed individual on board.”
