Ben’s Journey

Ben began his career with Listers Group in 2016. He wanted a career in sales but had no prior experience and at the time was working in a bar. He was invited to attend the Sales Assessment Centre by our Recruitment team, who assessed his attributes and transferable skills.

After the Assessment Day and interview, Ben got offered the role of Sales Executive at Honda Solihull. He held this role for three years, from 2016-2019, at which point he was able to progress into a Retail Management position. The Retail Manager role includes facilitating the sales of Finance and Insurance within the Sales process.


I first met Ben two days before he was due to visit the Listers Sales Assessment Centre, when he visited the dealership asking about how he could prepare to stand out from the other candidates. Five minutes after he left, I called the Recruitment team and said I need this talented young man in my team!

Since joining the Honda Solihull team in 2016, Ben has shown an enthusiasm and determination to shine in his role as a Sales Executive initially, and now as a Retail Manager. His confidence has only built throughout his journey so far, and with excellent use of his initiative, self-motivation, and Sales skills, he has become a real asset to our team.’ - Jamie Miller, Head of Business at Honda Solihull

Listers always has opportunities to progress within the group, if you are willing to work for them.’ says Ben. ‘My job varies every single day and every customer interaction is different, which keeps the job exciting.’
