South Tyneside car dealership, Jennings Ford Direct, part of the Jennings Motor Group, has expanded its sales team with a new member of staff.

James Adams, 30, from South Shields, is no stranger to the company having worked in sales at the group’s Washington site and former Mazda Sunderland branch.

Last year he took time out to complete a welding course at South Tyneside College, but when he heard about the sales vacancy the group’s Shields dealership, he got back in touch.

James said; “I am delighted to be back at Jennings and I am particularly looking forward to working as part of a sales team again.”

In his new role as sales executive at the busy Newcastle Road branch in South Shields, James will work as part of an eight-strong sales team where he will be responsible for selling nearly-new, quality approved Ford cars, which are sourced and delivered direct from the manufacturer, to customers from across the region. All Ford Direct vehicles come with a highly competitive peace of mind warranty package.

In addition to selling approved Ford vehicles, James will also be responsible for selling used vehicles from the group’s ‘Deals on Wheels’ operation which is located on the same premises.

Prior to embarking on a career in the motor industry, James worked for four years as a full-time waiter at The Sea Hotel in South Shields and also sacrificed a Leisure and Tourism course he was studying at Hebburn College, in order to pursue his ambition to work in motors.

Welcoming James on board, David Walker, general sales manager at Jennings Ford Direct in South Shields, said; “James will be an asset to the sales team. His knowledge and experience will contribute towards continued sales success.”
