Accounts Clerk

I first joined King Toyota as a car groomer in 2015, then left to attend Otago University in early 2016, only to find myself back at Rutherford and Bond at the end of 2016 working as a driver for the service department. This pushed me into my new role as accounts clerk at the end of 2017. I’m learning a lot in this role about the industry and the values that Toyota runs by and the extra mile we all strive to go to for our customers.
