Just take Nathan Solomon for example, who after graduating from the University of Northampton with a degree in journalism, went to work for an independent phone retailer. Within four months, he’d been appointed as manager of a struggling branch, where he turned the fortune of the shop around through “advertising in the local press and bringing my own style”.
Following this, Nathan was moved to a flagship store in Norwich as an assistant store manager, before moving across to Phones 4u as a sales consultant; at one time being 4th out of 550 employees. He then became the deputy manager at one of the busiest stores in Norwich.
Made the move
But when Nathan found out CarShop Norwich was opening nearby, he applied for a position: “I applied and was installed as Business Specialist, in the first month I found the role challenging, but very rewarding and then it all clicked and I consistently finished in the top two for the store”.
Following a solid start, the commitment to personal development CarShop provide helped Nathan get to grips with his job, despite it being new for him; eventually helping him progress within the role.
“In May this year I was promoted to become Consultant Manager; the company has given me all the relevant tools to progress, with the support of my Operations and Retail Manager.
“The environment can be a lot of fun, especially when it’s busy; there's a real buzz around the place and we try to provide a family environment for not just staff, but also our customers as well.”
Working for CarShop
As Nathan has demonstrated, not only do we provide a sufficient support network for our colleagues at every level, but also help them progress within CarShop.
Alongside an amazing environment, it doesn’t matter what your background is or where you’ve worked previously; CarShop could be the next step on your personal career ladder.
So if you see yourself working for us, check out the latest opportunities we have and get in touch. It’d be great to hear from you, and who knows where it could lead.
