An ambitious youngster from Sunderland, has embarked on a career in car sales at JenningsFord.

The Riverside Road dealership, just off Wessington Way, has expanded its sales force following the recent recruitment of 19-year-old, Matthew Hardy, from East Herrington as sales executive.

In his new role, Matthew will work as part of an eight-strong team responsible for selling new and used cars to customers across Wearside, contributing towards achieving monthly and quarterly sales objectives set out by Ford Motor Company, liaising with existing and potential customers, organising test drives, ensuring vehicles are delivered to allocated time schedules and processing paperwork.

Prior to embarking on a career in sales at the Jennings Ford dealership, Matthew has spent the last three months travelling the East Coast of Australia.

Prior to that, he spent a year as a trainee business development manager at Distinctive Training in Gateshead after completing his ‘A’ Levels at St Aidan’s School in Sunderland.

“I have always been interested in cars and working in sales, so when I saw the job advertised on the internet, I submitted my cv and after two interviews, I was offered the job,” said Matthew.

Looking forward to completing a number of internal sales training courses in the near future, Matthew went on to say;

“This is an absolutely fantastic opportunity for me and a challenge I am very much looking forward to.”

The full Ford range, readily available to test drive at Jennings Ford, offers something for everyone’s taste and budget, with everything from the young and funky Ford Ka through to the versatile nature of the spacious S-MAX.
