The Sheehy Motors Volkswagen showroom in Naas
Are you fed-up of the long commute to Dublin? Are you tired of being stuck in traffic and dreading another winter of long road journeys to get to and from work? Do you fancy a career in the booming motor industry with an exciting local dealer?
Then Sheehy Motors in Naas might have just the job for you!
The long-established group, which has been trading in Kildare and Carlow for some 40 years, is currently advertising to fill six Naas-based roles, ranging from sales to business management to front-facing service advisor. They also have some maternity cover contracts on offer.
The company operates two separate dealerships at its Newbridge Road showrooms - Sheehy Motors and Naas Audi - along with Sheehy Motors Carlow. It handles three key franchises in Naas, Audi, Skoda and Volkswagen, offering recruits the chance to work across a wide variety of motor industry sectors, from the fun and sporty Skoda to the family-friendly Volkswagen and the sleek and stylish Audi.
According to Frank Kelly, dealer principal for Sheehy Motors Naas, the organisation is expanding and growing, and aims to register just under 1,500 new vehicles from its Kildare dealerships in 2018.
Sheehy Motor Group (Naas) is a bustling and busy place to work as it employs around 85 staff in Kildare alone.
It has also established its own marketing internship programme, unique in the motoring industry, which is now in its third year, with its sixth intern due to start in January.
“This is beneficial to both ourselves and the intern as the wide variety of experience they get with us really helps them to further their careers,” says Gordon Geraghty, marketing manager. In fact, several of the interns who started out with Sheehy Motors went on to work for other departments in the business.
