Allied Vehicles are fully committed to offering a complete range of motor trade career opportunities. At our Glasgow Head Office premises, we currently employ vehicle technicians (trainee and time-served), auto electricians, panel beaters, vehicle fabricators, vehicle assemblers and spray painters.
Alongside the traditional motor trade positions, we also have the Cab Direct Sales Centre. The Sales Centre consists of six teams, each containing five sales executives and are responsible for all vehicle sales, including the Peugeot E7™ and our extensive list of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAV’s). Our Head office sales teams are backed up by Area Sales Managers and Field Sales Executives who are based throughout the UK and in most cases work from home.
Potential candidates for the Sales Centre are carefully selected using a rigorous process of assessment. Once you have managed to satisfy all the necessary requirements to work in Cab Direct sales, you will be placed on an intensive three week induction programme, which covers basic telesales to advanced techniques in selling vehicles over the phone. Our new recruits are professionally trained and encouraged to become top earners. Continued support and assistance is provided through a network of team leaders and managers.
We recognise that our sales people enjoy selling and we allow them as much time as possible to maximise their sales opportunities. There is an administration support team who are there to ensure that all sales are completed and that the customer is pleased with their purchase and willing to come back to us. Promotion from within is encouraged and there are plenty of opportunities for talented individuals to make a real impression and gain the recognition they deserve. With Cab Direct being such an innovative and forward thinking company, we are always looking at ways of improving the employee experience. This creative thinking makes for a fun and enjoyable working environment where success is always rewarded.
A privately owned company, established in 1994, Allied Vehicles is principally made up of two distinct trading divisions, Allied Vehicles and Cab Direct. Through these divisions we are involved in all areas of the motor trade, specialising in wheelchair accessible vehicles, taxis and after-sales services.
Allied Recruitment & Training
Allied Recruitment & Training work with local companies who need telesales operators and can match applicants to suitable positions. A full telesales training programme is provided to ensure the applicants have the necessary skills.
Career Development at Allied Vehicles
Like all successful organisations, we recognise that our people are our most important asset. Our commitment to employee development is unstinting and this was demonstrated in January 2004 with the introduction of our Management Development Programme (MDP). It is available to all areas of the business and continues for a period of 12 months. It has been designed initially for managers, supervisors and team leaders, however, it is available for anyone who wishes to develop into management at some stage during their career. We have teamed up with local enterprise company Glasgow North and Anniesland College, to put together a comprehensive programme relevant to our people’s needs. Employee development is an essential tool in modern business and we believe that the MDP designed for our staff, is a great step in the right direction.
