Main purpose of job:

Assist the Yard Manager to ensure that all vehicles, once they have entered the site, are stored, moved, and parked on site in accordance with the notified Sale Day Programme and Company safety standards so that vehicles enter the Auction Halls at the correct time, in the correct order and having received the valet/wash service as stipulated by the customer.

  • Direct the storage and parking of all vehicles on site and the movement of vehicles between the Yard and the Auction Halls, via agreed valet/wash services, so that vehicles enter and leave the Auction Halls in accordance with the notified Sale Day programme.
  • Assist the Yard Manager to ensure that all vehicles in the Yard & Halls are correctly recorded and that all documentation associated with the Yard & Halls is accurately completed, in accordance with the site’s operating procedures, so that vehicles can be found when needed and so that vehicles are not left on site longer than has been agreed.
  • Ensure that the Company’s Health and Safety standards and practices are adhered to in the Yard & Halls area by both Company workers and by members of the public so that accidents to vehicles and people are prevented, as far as is reasonably practicable.
  • Train and develop the yard department staff to ensure that all employees are competent in their duties; create and fulfil training plans as required.
  • Manage expenditure and waste in the department to ensure that budgetary targets are met or exceeded.

Whilst some management activity is carried out within a normal office environment, the yard & halls activities are predominantly undertaken outdoors. This means that in order to effectively direct the operations in the yard & halls the job holder necessarily spends a significant proportion of their time exposed to weather conditions.

A flexible approach to working hours is required to meet the needs of the business which are driven by the auctions.
