About the employer

Since 1998, Motorpoint has been instrumental in revolutionising the way in which the British public has bought new and nearly new cars. Historically, the UK has paid more for our cars than almost anywhere else in Europe. From the outset, Motorpoint has sought to redress the balance, leading the campaign to wrestle control from the manufacturers and their dealer networks, and create a simple and straightforward transparent pricing policy. Our business model has never changed since we opened for business. Our buying power enables us to bulk purchase a wide selection of cars from suppliers across the UK and Europe – savings which we then pass on direct to the customer.
