Rising Star Award

Finding Outstanding Young Talent

The Rising Star Award acknowledges and celebrates outstanding young talent within the motoring industry.

We invite managers to nominate individuals who have already established themselves as exceptional performers, possess strong business expertise, and inspire colleagues through their performance. These candidates should be driven, innovative, and have the potential to make a significant impact on the broader car retailing sector.

Eligible for the Rising Stars Award are individuals who have entered the industry within the last two years. Managers are required to nominate candidates on their behalf.

We encourage staff members from all the following areas to apply:

  • Car Retailing
  • Sales and After-Sales
  • Administration
  • Management

Making Your Entry Stand Out

When you’re making your application, take your time to be clear. It’s easy to over explain your achievements, to go into too much detail or to spend time only on one item.

Try to break down your application into sections that are clear, concise and really tell a story about who you or your brand are. Our judges want to understand you, get to know you and to understand the authentic contribution you’re making to the industry.

Keep it simple

Be clear and concise in your application, the judges want to see exactly what you can do.

Use Examples

If you have stats or specific stories, include them. Our judges want to get to know you.

Be Yourself

Be authentic. Tell us what your experiences are, not what you think our judges want to read.

Sing your own praises

This is your chance to really shout about what you’ve been doing. Don’t be modest!
