A Day in the life on the Boland Group Graduate Programme: Jack Brophy

This week, Jack takes us through a day in his life in T&C where he is currently working as a Sales Executive.

“Every Morning, the Sales team meet to discuss our enquires and plans for the day. This is made up of myself, our General Manager, our Business Manager and the Senior Sales Executive. I suppose this is the one constant I have – the great thing about working here is that no two days are the same!

After our morning meeting, I will carry out any tasks that have been delegated to me such as updating stock information on our website, taking pictures of new stock & booking in trade ins for service/bodywork etc.

Of course, being in sales means I get to interact with the public also. Its great to have the opportunity to talk with customers who are interested in buying vehicles and taking them through the process – right from appraising their own vehicle to sealing the deal for their new car!

A lot of my works ultimate goal is lead generation – that is engaging with the public/our customer base to encourage them to buy a car. This means I post content on social media to engage with our customers as well as helping with newspaper/radio ads. I work closely with our Business Manager in reviewing current customers finance agreements – this is very interesting as it’s a big part of the motor industry now, we will analyse agreements where we feel a customer can get a better deal.

So far I have had an input in our branding, design plans for upgrading our showroom and developing our new website.

As I said the role I have is varied – I really enjoy it because of this. You are exposed to almost every facet of a business that you are shown in college. There is elements of sales, finance, marketing and management in my role. Over the next year I hope to continue on this path; being involved in many areas and growing our customer base – this ultimately means more success for both myself and T&C Motors

Thank you to Jack for sharing his experience with us. If you would like to apply for our 2021 Graduate Programme follow our LinkedIn page for application updates. https://bit.ly/3mh0gZL
