Q&A With a Motorama Business Manager

We're having a chat with Jamie Gear from Motorama Moorooka, who grew from receptionist to business manager in just a couple of months.

Tell us something about yourself; what did you study, do before Motorama and how did you end up with us?

Previously I was a travel agent for 5 years! I did my Certificate III and IV in Travel and Tourism, however due to COVID I had to step back and find another career path.
I saw there was a job opening for a receptionist for Mitsubishi and Kia, and I knew Motorama had a lot of opportunities for growth so I took the leap to change industries.

What does your day look like at Motorama? What do you do exactly?

I work closely with the sales team and managers to provide finance solutions for our customers, as well as offering comprehensive insurance to cover their new vehicles.

What are the highlights of your job? What do you like to do best?

I like being able to help customers from deposit to delivery, and share the excitement when they pick up their new cars!

When people come back to us for another vehicle, it's really nice to see a familiar face and share that excitement all over again.

In which way does Motorama stand out as an employer? What do you like best about working for Motorama?

Motorama has so many opportunities for growth, and you're able to do your training as you go.

Successes are always recognised and celebrated, so you know your hard work isn't going unnoticed. Everyone is really supportive, and we all want to see each other succeed.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What are the growth opportunities that Motorama offers and you have made use of in the past?

In a hub leader role, working alongside other Business Managers and finding ways to improve our customer's finance journey to purchasing their vehicle.

Since starting at Motorama as a receptionist, I was given the opportunity to become a Trainee Business Manager and progress to where I am now!
