The young recruits will be offered real career opportunities in the brand’s private dealership network and at its Renault Retail Group subsidiary.

The needs of the sales network are estimated at around 1,000 hires in 2015, all jobs combined. The positions will be available across France in the private dealership network and at Renault Retail Group, the retail subsidiary of the Renault Group.
The positions will mainly be for:
¡ sales advisors , responsible for the sales of new and used vehicles, financing and services, in showrooms or in the field,
¡ service advisors , tasked with welcoming customers in after-sales at the brand’s workshops.
Other positions will also be available in after-sales, notably for mechanics, body-shop personnel, warehouse employees and workshop heads.
These recruitments for the French sales network are to be added to the plan to recruit 1,000 people announced by Carlos Ghosn on 12 February and the recruitment of 60 people announced by RCI Banque on 27 May.
Philippe Buros, SVP Market Area France at Renault, commented: “ The Renault brand is making progress in France. Our new models are a success and the ambitious product plan ahead of us will further strengthen activity in our sales network. So there are opportunities for the men and women looking to join the country’s number-one automotive retail network and play a part in the development of the Renault brand in France.”
The new recruits will join a business sector offering real career development opportunities.

Renault’s training system in France provides 400,000 hours of training a year to over 22,000 people at eight regional training centers.
