Here is a short message from just a few of us!
The chance has presented itself to join the team at Bowater Honda.
Bowater Honda have had a fantastic run since moving into the new showroom in Achilles Ave, in the heart of central Nelson. Sales have been booming, especially with the new generation Honda Jazz just flying out the door as fast as we can get test drives and trades done.
This unprecented scale of growth has meant that Bowater Honda are now looking for a Sales Support / Customer Services Sales Person to join our busy team in our modernised and centrally located Honda Franchise dealership.
The right person will be highly motivated with a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction. A self starter that is a real people person that enjoys the satisfaction of exceeding the expectations of those that they meet. The kind of person that lights up a room, or is everyone's mate. Someone keen to get started in the motor industry, keen to learn new skills, and keen to fit in with an established long term team. They will also ideally be quite computer literate, super friendly and having a prior mechanical experience will be a definite advantage that will make life for all a whole lot easier.
The role is a Sales Support & Customer Services one across several different departments within the busy local Honda franchise. This means that there will be a lot to learn, but also a lot of diversity in your new job.

Honda is a long established brand, with a great reputation and an excellent product that continues to win awards in NZ as well as the rest of the world. The Bowater Motor Group have a long association with Honda New Zealand and we are proud to be flying the Honda flag.
It is awards season, with all of the motoring magazines, websites and organisations putting together their lists of favourites.
One of the heavy hitters in all of this is the New Zealand Motoring Writers' Guild (NZMWG), who in conjunction with AA motoring experts, put together the first big awards ranking that has everyone talking. They consider styling, performance, handling, economy, comfort, build quality and finish, value for money and the x-factor when selecting those vehicles to win their categories.
This year was the turn of the Hyundai Santa Fe to turn out a stella performance. It came in top of the heap of the Large SUV bunch, something certainly not lost on the good people of Nelson and Tasman, who have been buying up this wonderful multi purpose vehicle in record numbers over the past year.
Today Bowater Hyundai CEO Chris Bowater got to get very close to the ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy - the actual 25kg World Cup in all of it's gold and silver glory.
The trophy is doing a tour of the country ahead of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup Tournament which gets underway this summer, with the first games swinging into action on Feb 14th 2015. Nelson is very lucky to also be a part of this global event, with the first of 3 games being played in Nelson starting on the 16th February.
Bowater Hyundai are super excited to be a part of the action and have partnered up with the Nelson City Council to make sure everyone locally is as excited as we all are. It is a great opportunity to get involved with an internationally watched tournament, with some statistics stating that a billion people will be watching!
