What are we looking for?
To help with your application, whether you are applying for an entry level job, or a management position, we have put together a list of our top tips to help you send in an application that will make sure you stand out from the crowd.
Get a great cover letter together to stand out from the crowd.
If you don’t have the most exact experience, tell us why you think we should give you the opportunity to be interviewed.
If you have a love of cars, engines, or even motorsport, we will love to hear it!
For our customers, their car is their pride and joy, so we want to make sure we hire people who are enthusiastic and caring when it comes to looking after someone’s car and giving them a fantastic experience.
The brands we represent were carefully chosen by the Lovett family, so we also enjoy reading applications which let us know how much working for your favourite brand would mean to you.
When sending over your CV and cover letter, remember to use the spell check tool on your computer.
If you are applying for a job where you need to communicate with customers, we will use your application as an example of how you communicate in writing.
If you want to be a Sales Executive but have no sales experience, look out for entry level roles such as Sales Support or Trainee Sales Executive.
Watch Issy’s video to find out about what a General Sales Support gets up to. If you don’t have the relevant experience or key skills, is this job right for you? Do you need to gain some more relevant experience in a similar field before you apply?
Ensure you do plenty of research on both the brand you are applying to work for and the Dick Lovett company. Our values are what make us stand out from other automotive companies, so make sure you understand our principle of P.R.I.D.E (Personal Role In Delivering Excellence).
Try to pick up the key things we are looking for in our job adverts and showcase when you have had experience of this in your work history.
For example, if we are looking for someone who has fantastic customer service skills, highlight that communication was an important part of your job as a football coach or listening to your customers’ needs was imperative in your job as a Guest Services Manager at a hotel.
