TKS is an international (originally Spanish) company with a UK base in Woodbridge Suffolk, who employ auditors to visit various franchised and other car dealerships in order to carry out audits of financed stock at the premises. 

     The company is expanding and is looking for additional auditors to offer additional cover to other areas of the UK.
     A number of the existing auditors are retired officers and the company likes the qualities that we possess to support their business i.e. communication skills, reliability, professional, accuracy in recording information etc. etc. 

     With our individual extended network of former colleagues and associates who live throughout the country are you, or do you know anyone, who would be interested in carrying out vehicle audits in any of the following areas…? 

Central Northern Ireland
Chester - and slightly South of here and anywhere in between Chester and North Wales
Isle of Man

North Wales

     The work is on a self- employed basis and there is no guarantee of work, although you are likely to have audits to carry out every month.  The pay is reasonably good and it's part time, varied, pleasant work, with the ability to schedule times and dates to suit you, with total flexibility around taking holidays.      The audits are all ‘app’ based so you will need access to a smartphone in order to carry them out – if you can post on social media you can use the app!
    If you, or someone you know, might be interested then please, do feel free to message our informant,
Andrew Connell, directly or contact Christian Pawsey (Director) at TKS on 01473 316848 to discuss further, or email on info@art-tks.com.
