    If the answer is ‘YES’, West Way Nissan Southampton can offer you all this and more. We’re part of the UK’s favourite Nissan dealer group and we sell more Nissans than any other franchised network. Unlike most dealerships, West Way are owned by the manufacturer, which means our people have access to outstanding training, prospects and earning opportunities.

    Whether you’re an experienced Car Sales Executive or someone who is just starting out in the motor trade, this is an ideal chance to re-boot your career. Based in the Sales department, you’ll report to the Sales Manager and work closely in all areas of sales to achieve the objectives of the business, including new, used and Motability cars.
