Job description


Retail Development Manager

One Group. Six brands. Unlimited possibilities.

We've noticed that ŠKODA cars are driven by a particular type of person. It's nothing to do with age, income or any other social demographic, but attitude. Our customers love driving something different because they're driven by something different. Just like us.

And right now we are at a pivotal moment as the focus is shifting massively towards CO2 free, connected cars. We are really only just at the beginning as ŠKODA is leading the charge for affordable, electrified mobility.

Great products, potential for a global career, limitless opportunities – you'll find all that here at Volkswagen Group UK.  What really sets us apart is how we work – not how many vehicles we sell. Volkswagen Group UK has a unique culture, built on diversity, difference and a friendly rivalry that inspires us all. Across our brands and group functions, we learn from each other, encourage each other and regularly challenge each other to think differently. Our people have a true passion for what they do, a genuine desire to go further for customers and to give their own careers real momentum at the same time.

We have an exciting new opportunity to join the ŠKODA team as a Retail Development Manager reporting into ŠKODA's Head of Fleet.  This is a truly transformational role when you can make a real difference.

In this role you'll be responsible for bringing clarity and detailed definition to the future Retailer sales journey. Scope will include development of our business model, supporting processes and responsibilities within the context of an omni-channel sales environment. You will also have responsibility for the development and management of relevant network sales processes, quality standards and ensuring future retail network viability.

You'll work with the wider team and have the ability to influence senior stakeholders on new, innovative concepts, therefore it is essential that you are a strategic thinker and have high energy levels with the tenacity to drive programmes forward even when faced with headwinds. You'll have a proven knowledge of Automotive sales and Retailer operations and track record of delivering results. 

So what can we offer you? We know people value different things, so along with a competitive salary, car, fuel card and discretionary bonus, we offer a wide range of flexible benefits to suit you and your lifestyle.

Sound like your type of challenge? We'd love to hear from you…
