We pride ourselves on our customer offering, and we know that is down to the determination and passion of our people. To reward our staff, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including paid compassionate leave, a pension scheme and ample development opportunities. Dependant on their role, some of our staff also get a company car.
It's not all work either, we also like to throw parties every Christmas and summer!
Employees can benefit from discounts on our cars as well as on servicing & parts, which is great for keeping you on the road, whether you're coming into work, running your errands or off on the open road.
We encourage our staff to recommend friends and family that would be a good fit for our business. If the referee then goes on to start working with us, we offer a cash bonus to the referrer, as well as another bonus if the referee stays with us for over 6 months.
We understand that work is just one part of life and there's plenty to be done outside of working hours, that's why our employees get a generous 31 days of paid holiday per year, which goes up as your length of service increases.
Health and wellbeing support
We have partnered with BEN, a great charity that focuses on health and wellbeing for those who work, or have worked, in the automotive community. They operate flexible and continuing care, and support through crises.
We also offer eye care support for our employees through VDU vouchers that entitle you to a discount on eye tests and glasses.
