Sales Team Leader

At Hippo Motor Group we have a close team of driven, enthusiastic, and committed Sales executives who develop and maintain excellent relationships with all our customers. Whether it is a small city car or a luxury prestige car, our team’s aim is to ensure each and every customer achieves first-class service. We can achieve this because our staff genuinely care about the company and our customers. We specialise in offering tailor-made finance options to suit customer needs. Continual business growth provides opportunities for our employees to develop and exceed within each department.

Due to Hippo expanding so quickly, we have achieved the success and image of a main dealership with the atmosphere of a family-run business. We are serious about what we do and being the best, but we always ensure we have fun as we do it. This is reflected in our extremely low staff turnover rate.

As a result of our success, Hippo is constantly developing and expanding which is why we are recruiting for a Sales Team Leader to effectively manage one of our online sales teams.
