Our people-centred culture, combined with our tech and data expertise makes us one of the UK's leading companies and a great place to start your career as a Graduate Account Manager.
Our Account Managers create and nurture lasting partnerships with over 12,500 motor trader customers so they can succeed in the digital automotive marketplace. Our customer base is diverse and ranges from small independent garages to national dealers, who in turn sell new and used vehicles across the UK. Our Account Managers utilise data and industry insight combined with a consultative sales approach to offer the right digital products to drive growth and efficiencies in our customers' businesses. With a diverse customer base, our graduates gain exposure to all segments of our customers starting with our smallest retailers through to our largest.
All of our graduates start their journey at our in-house academy. You don't have to be a car enthusiast to work here so upon joining; we'll grow your knowledge of the automotive industry so you can truly understand our customers and what we do as a business. You will develop commercial skills and sales techniques to give your career a great foundation. You'll build your experience further by working alongside our talented community of Account Managers and Account Directors.
Join our virtual event on Monday 15 February to find out more about the role and what's involved in the assessment experience. Registration required via Eventbrite.
Benefits and more
Our graduate salaries start at £26,000, and we offer a flexible benefits package to support your health and well-being. You'll have 28 days holiday per year, and that's in addition to bank holidays and half day closures on Christmas and New Year's Eve. Our Aviva pension scheme offers between 5% to 7% employer contributions depending on the percentage you choose to contribute, and we provide Bupa healthcare cover for all of our employees.
Our employee assistance programme, share-save options and give as you earn schemes are just some of the other benefits on offer should you decide to join us.
Career development is something that we're passionate about at Auto Trader, and we all develop and learn things differently. Whether you attend an external conference, utilise a LinkedIn Learning license or choose one of our in-house masterclasses, there's something for everyone.
Our graduate programme starts in both June and October 2021, and you can state your preference on the start date as you move through the recruitment process.
What we are looking for
You'll have a passion for excellent customer service and be excited by our customer-first culture. An entrepreneurial approach and an interest in learning how a successful business is run will give you the right foundation for this role.
Given the level of interaction with our customers both over the phone and face to face, you'll enjoy building relationships, sharing best practice and shaping digital change. You will be a confident communicator, with the ability to influence based on insight. You'll be numerate and analytical with some experience in collecting, analysing and presenting data in a meaningful and engaging way. As you'll be joining a sales environment, you'll be motivated to meet the commercial targets in place, and excited by the challenge.

Although this is an office-based Account Manager role, the role does have a field-based element, so a UK Driving License, or motivation to obtain one is essential.
