About the employer

Founded by Managing Director Michael Nobes, and originally Richmond Hyundai in 1995, the Richmond Motor Group has seen incredible growth in a relatively short period of time, collecting many awards and accolades along the way. The government scrappage scheme in 2010 saw Richmond become the UK's Number 1 scrappage dealer, taking hundreds of old and inefficient vehicles off the road and replacing them with cleaner, greener models, and the business has been Europe's number one Hyundai dealer for several years. The business has developed from the small Portsmouth showroom to today’s multi-site, multi-million pound dealerships on the South Coast. Richmond Motor Group now operates from 7 locations which includes 13 showrooms covering Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey and works with 6 different franchises. Despite the significant growth of the business, our values remain the same and the family friendly feel of the original business continues and we make sure to put our customers at the heart of our business.
