Ollie takes the plunge with sales job at Pebley Beach

From diving to driving, a would-be Navy diver has taken the plunge with a new job in motor sales – at Swindon Hyundai and Suzuki dealership Pebley Beach.

Ollie Martin (19) dreamed of a job as a mine clearance diver with the Royal Navy. But the former Army and Air cadet's hopes were dashed when cuts to the military budget saw demand for divers slashed.

Now Ollie is following another of his loves – and has surrounded himself with cars.

"Along with scuba diving, cars are a passion of mine," said the former St John's Marlborough and New College, Swindon student.

"I was excited to see the job of trainee sales executive advertised, and thrilled to be offered the position."

Ollie will be shadowing senior sales executives and attending Suzuki training courses in Manchester before earning his stripes as a fully-fledged sales executive.

"We're delighted to have Ollie on board," said managing director Dominic Threlfall. "Already he's making quite a splash at Pebley Beach."

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
