Join a high-performing team changing the way Australia travels

Car Next Door is fundamentally changing the way Australia travels by turning any car into a share car. We let car owners share their car with their neighbours during times they aren’t using it themselves. We do this by providing an online marketplace with safe and trusted members, a booking system and a range of in-vehicle technologies to make car sharing safe, fast, and easy for both car owners and car borrowers. Our mission is to ‘de-car’ Australia’s cities by using technology to facilitate sharing.


2017 is shaping up to be the best yet for Car Next Door - we’ve recently expanded operations from Sydney and Melbourne into Newcastle and Brisbane and are rapidly expanding our network of cars and borrowers.
We’re looking to attract an enthusiastic and self-motivated person to help drive our growth as we scale up. This is an opportunity to join a progressive start up with an already proven concept. The position will suit someone with an energetic spirit looking to join a committed and successful team (About Us).

What will be your key focus?

Your excellent communication skills will be put to work making sure the journey for car owners joining the Car Next Door platform is as smooth as possible.

Reporting to the New Member Manager and working with the Cars and Member Experience teams, you will be contributing to the success of Car Next Door by ensuring we welcome and keep as many happy owners on board as possible.

Your role will include:

  • Onboarding newly-signed up owners, talking them through the installation process, answering any questions and allaying any concerns they have
  • Making sure we have all the information required from them to maximise their earnings from being a Car Next Door owner
  • Making cars live on the platform ready to be booked out by our community of borrowers
  • Retention calls with existing owners to re-engage them 
  • Following established administration processes and documenting new ones
  • Sales and retention administration 
  • Other tasks as necessary

Essential skills and experience:

  • Demonstrated experience talking to customers on the phone and via email in a sales or customer service environment
  • You need to be comfortable with a sales based role and be genuinely excited by what Car Next Door is doing
  • Outgoing and confident, with a patient and personable phone style. You’ll be guiding car owners through the steps required to share their car with others and they may be nervous. Your job is to listen to and overcome their concerns while highlighting the many positives involved in putting their idle cars to work for them
  • Strong interpersonal and verbal communication skills with a high level of spoken and written English
  • Demonstrated skills in managing time, setting priorities, planning and organising workflow in a fast-paced environment
  • High level of computer competence and a technical mindset. We are an online platform with a technological solution to car-sharing. You don’t need to be a programmer, but you need to be able to learn how to use new systems quickly and with minimal supervision/training.
  • Be a team player. You may be required to step out of your normal duties to help out another team or run a project. We are firmly a ‘no divas’ business. 
  • A love of learning. Be a person who is constantly looking outside for new and better ways to do things, who takes initiative to look for ways to improve processes for the benefit of the team and business, and who actively seeks feedback and takes it onboard.
  • A natural connection with our Company Values.
