What is Vardy Training Academy?

Opportunities like this don’t come around every day. For those wanting to put their foot down and get their career into the fast lane; the Vardy Academy scheme from fast-growing motoring group, Peter Vardy, is a chance to shape your future. 

If you would love to be a part of the Peter Vardy family, please follow the steps on the APPLY NOW section below.

Where other salespeople want hard-nosed, Always Be Closing speeches, Peter Vardy firmly believes that it is teamwork that makes every day extraordinary, and the Vardy Academy is designed to help motivated people make each and every dealership world-class.

That’s where our Vardy Training Academy comes in.  We’re inviting people who are new to the automotive industry, or new to the sales environment to come along and show us their drive and passion to succeed and their natural rapport with people from all walks of life.  We’ll use our knowledge and expertise to identify the people we believe are most likely to succeed and if you fall within that category, we’ll invite you to be part of our Rookie Training Academy.

For 12 weeks, you’ll join us for a full programme where we’ll focus on giving you everything you need to become a highly successful sales advisor in our award winning organisation.

The programme will be a mixture of classroom training at our head office and ‘hands on’ activities at your designated dealership (as well as a few more unusual days that we’ll keep a surprise for now).  We’ll work closely with you to build your confidence and knowledge and make sure you know exactly what it takes to create delighted customers who always come back to us. 

On top of all this, you’ll have a dedicated trainer and mentor throughout the entire programme who will continue to support you once you’re out in the job for real.

We need great people with great attitudes to come and join us on the next phase in our journey.  It’s going to be hard work, great fun and we’re going to keep getting better and better.  That’s why you’ll love it so about the experience from one of our sales advisors who graduated from the Vardy Academy this year:

"As someone who had no previous sales experience I am incredibly grateful of the training Peter Vardy provides through the Vardy Academy. It really sets you up for a career in the motor trade. Everything is broken down with the 'Peter Vardy Sales Process' - this allows you to gain a better understanding of what goes in to the job and what is expected of you. You will be paired up with a Sales Advisor at your dealership who will help to expand your knowledge of the motor trade and allow you to witness the sales process in action. Seeing someone with experience doing it really puts it in to perspective. If you are lucky enough to be a part of the Vardy Academy, you should grab the opportunity with both hands as the level of training provided is second to none.”

Use a mobile device, tablet, Go-pro, video camera or even a cine-camera

And could change it
