  • Parts and accessories – this role really gets stuck into producing complex reports for senior managers to help make business decisions for our vehicle parts and accessories stockholding.
  • Sales operations – this role requires excellent analytical skills to explore Mitsubishi’s sales and provide information to help make important business decisions.

With a passion for developing those skills you do have and having a genuine interest in automotive, you will gain valuable experience whilst working for us. We’re looking for candidates who have a flexible outlook, up for a challenge, confident and keen to provide excellent service to our customers and suppliers.
