Hitachi Capital to offer car allowance to graduates

Hitachi Capital is offering graduates that join its new graduate programme to be implemented in 2011 in its sales division a company car allowance as part of efforts to recruit the best talent.

A company car allowance will be given to all new joiners who try their hand at a career in sales at the finance and vehicle management firm from January 2011.

During their first year of employment, graduates will not earn commission but will receive an annual bonus, which will depend on their understanding of the business and level of competence. In their second year with the firm, graduates will earn both commission and a bonus.

Phil Peace, director of sales at Hitachi Capital, said: “The sales programme is to immerse [graduates] in the culture of the business. They work in other departments and get an understanding of the business before moving into a sales role.”
