  • Process vehicles entered for sale so that service level agreements are correctly applied.

Additional Information:

  • The role of Account Controller requires a high degree of relationship building with customers - hence the job holder must be able to gain the trust and confidence of the customer by detailed account management, industry knowledge and interpersonal skills. A high level of administration and organisational skills is also required.

    The role is the customer’s representative on site and so, of equal importance, is the ability to influence other BCA staff so that they act on the customer’s behalf, without loosing sight of the fact that BCA is the employer and ultimately loyalty must, therefore, lie with the Company.

  • The working hours of the position will vary according to auction times, sale days and other requirements of the business. A flexible approach to hours of work is therefore needed.
