UNDERSTANDING THE IMPORTANCE OF GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE

Our Sales team are on hand to assist with all types of enquiry throughout a customer’s buying journey. Whether it’s advising on restoration parts, double checking how many of an item are required, or being the go to person for us at an event, this role is fun, challenging and rewarding. It’s important to stress that you don’t have to know everything. Our team has a huge amount of experience between them when it comes to Volkswagen (and Porsche) parts and they are only too happy to pass this on to help out others.


MOTIVATED, METHODICAL AND ACCURATE PEOPLE: OUR BUSY WAREHOUSE TEAM.

Our business couldn’t function without the warehouse operations team. Responsible for picking, packing and dispatching the car parts that customers have purchased, they are the last link in a long chain before the end user receives their goods. Sending up to 1000 parcels a day our Goods Out team has to work efficiently together to ensure our customers get the best quality experience with Heritage Parts Centre.


WELL ORGANISED WITH A GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL: OUR PURCHASING DEPARTMENT

A key element in the negotiation, purchase and management of over 25,000 different parts for VW and Porsche. Working at the beginning of the chain for our company, it’s critical that quality is not only present in the parts we source, but in the way we manage our procurement too. Communication is essential amongst the immediate team, and also with other departments.

Managing the arrival of new parts and deliveries from many global suppliers, dates and times must be coordinated with both our Warehouse team and with the Sales and Marketing departments too. The ability to prioritise workflow is most important, as is a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office. An understanding of the automotive sector and appreciation of cars would be useful, and if you can speak a second language that is a real advantage.
