National Fleet Manager
Working with You is the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand promise to our customers. Because for more than 60 years, we've been working closely with, learning from and delivering for, organisations large and small throughout the UK. It means that we've become the wheels that keep organisations going in the right direction – creating business partnerships that last by providing vehicles that perform.
With a rich heritage, we have a huge following of enthusiasts from around the world. It's all thanks to our ability to punch above our weight as a team. As part of our team, you'll go to work enhancing our long-standing reputation, rolling your sleeves up and building close relationships in the world of B2B and B2C vehicle sales, which will ensure our sustained success for the next 60 years.
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is about to enter a transformational period as we bring highly anticipated new models to market.
We have an exciting opportunity for you to join our Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles team as the National Fleet Manager on a permanent basis. Reporting into the Head of Fleet, you'll be responsible for leading a high performing team of Area Fleet Managers to deliver fleet sales across the UK. This role is the face of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles fleet where you'll build on existing relationships and have the drive and tenacity to develop new ones. We work with leading organisations to provide premium fleet solutions. You'll develop and implement customer and sales channel strategies across key fleet channels, including corporate, SME and public sector.
This is a key leadership role in the brand, a role that will be pivotal in achieving success over the next few years. You'll have experience managing large projects and driving a team through exciting periods of transformation and change. You'll know how a corporate organisation works and have experience managing multiple stakeholders groups, as well as your own team. You'll have a successful track record in B2B sales within a large corporate organisation (not necessarily Automotive!) and enjoy working in a busy and fast paced environment.
You'll be a skilled communicator, facing out to our network and building key relationships with senior stakeholders. You'll have strong influencing and negotiating skills and enjoy leading and developing people.
In this role you'll have the opportunity to make a real difference to the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand and to support the business to succeed with its ambitions for the future.
