Rare Management Opportunity


 General Manager

Western Volkswagen Fort Kinnaird

Excellent Basic Salary + Uncapped Bonus + Two Company Cars


General Manager vacancies are a relatively scarce commodity.

A General Manager vacancy affording the successful applicant the opportunity to lead & direct one of the UK’s largest & most successful Volkswagen businesses could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 

Eastern Western Motor Group, Scotland’s premier, privately owned motor group seek a top-class manager to drive a high performing business to even greater heights. Western Volkswagen in East Edinburgh has always been led by a commercially astute, highly experienced manager with a particular ability to keep the team’s morale & motivation high. Any applicant must follow this lead. 

A successful applicant’s skill set is likely to include planning, budgeting, financial analysis, activity management, enquiry management, in-depth F+I knowledge, FCA compliance along with a detailed knowledge of the business drivers in all four dealership departments. These skills will be under-pinned by excellent numeracy, literacy and a burning desire to deliver an exemplary experience for staff and customers alike. 

Eastern Western Motor Group is proud to represent the Volkswagen brand and an understanding of both Volkswagen’s future strategy and Eastern Western’s ethos would be a distinct advantage. This role is unlikely to suit a line manager looking for their first foray into General Management. This is a ‘premier league’ role in a fast-moving, highly profitable, strategically important business. Nonetheless, applications are sought from experienced managers who believe they have the skillset required. Managers from non-motor industry backgrounds need not apply. The position will report to the Western Volkswagen Franchise Principal.
