Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions is launching a sales recruitment scheme to encourage more graduates to join the business and acquire industry skills on-the-job.
The Newbury-based leasing firm will recruit six graduates per year onto the two-year programme.
In year one, graduates will have the opportunity to work in company departments such as customer services, giving them time to absorb and understand the culture of the business. Candidates will then be assessed on a series of competencies and if successful, will make the transition into the sales team.
Year two develops graduates further into the sales role, ensuring they have the right skill set and attitude to become a fully fledged member of the team. In addition to basic salary and a company car, they will also benefit from the sales’ commission structure.
Hitachi Capital is advertising the scheme to local universities and surrounding areas over the next three months with the aim to recruit the first round of graduates in April/May.
