"By the end of your first year, you should be ready to take on a full area manager role, with all the responsibilities that entails, from motivating employees to encouraging excellent performance.

"Your ultimate aim? To achieve the highest possible sales while ensuring an efficient working environment, great customer service, minimal costs and maximum productivity."

The starting salary is £44,000, with the top end of the scale being £79,040 and the graduate package includes a BMW 3 series car.
