Trainee Sales Executive Role

Based at our Burnley branch

Have you ever thought you’d like to work in car sales but didn’t know where to start? Do you have sales experience from another area, or think you could really excel in a sales environment? If yes to any of these, then this opportunity should be right up your street.

We are looking for a Trainee Sales Executive to join the team at our Burnley dealership. You will be working alongside experienced colleagues and trained in selling a combination of new and used vehicles, with a wide range of finance and insurance products.

You must have held a full clean driving licence for a minimum of 12 months to be able to apply for this role. But if you do and you have drive, energy, personality and a can-do attitude, please read further.

Who are we:

Chorley Group is the proud holder of UK Best Dealerships to Work For, and a family run business with the ethos of treating everyone with the respect they deserve.

Our Burnley dealership is home to both Nissan & MG showrooms, as well as an impressive used-car forecourt. You will have ample opportunity here to learn from a well-established team, with some previous graduates of our training programme setting fabulous examples of sales and earning potential.

The job:

Working in a dealership sales environment can be challenging – its a target-driven industry and regulated by the FCA so process is very important – but it is also very rewarding in both job satisfaction and take-home pay. As a trainee you’ll start on a basic of between £15,000 and £20,000 per year with no targets to work to, but once you complete the training you could be on target to earning £25,000 to £30,000, and experienced Execs can easily exceed £60,000 per year.

We are open 7 days a week, and our sales team work 5 days on a rota covering both weekdays where we close at 7pm and weekends where end of day is 5pm. You’ll work between 40 and 45 hours per week, which will be the same when you complete the training and become a fully-fledged Executive.

We have standards, processes and expectations which must be achieved during your training, and moving on in your career we expect you will be:

  • Following the Company sales process 100% of the time, from enquiry through to delivery and beyond.
  • Achieving a variety of monthly and quarterly targets.
  • Keeping company paperwork 100% up to date and accurate.
  • Maintaining excellent customer relations and building rapport and lasting relationships.
  • Managing and developing your customer follow-up and prospecting systems.
  • Complying fully with industry and FCA standards and processes,
  • Ensuring your manufacturer training is fully up to date and
  • Demonstrating the Chorley Group family ethos of 'Big Enough to Cope, Small Enough to Care'

What you'll get:

We’ve already talked money and let’s be honest, it’s a short term hit for a long-term gain. Training will last between 4 and 8 months on average and once you start getting and hitting your targets the £30,000 to £60,000 per year is very realistic.

In addition, you get the usual holidays and pension plus life assurance and a range of staff discounts and incentive schemes, and the Annual Awards.

As a Sales Executive you’ll be able to join the cost-effective car lease scheme, win with sales incentives and be the master of your own destiny in terms of earnings potential and progression through the company. We love to see a person do well, and if you put in 100% you will get easily 110% back from us.

If you’re ready to put your future into overdrive send an email to or drop us your CV, telling us why you’d be our Next Top Trainee.
