About the employer

In 1908, Harold Perry founded a business selling motor accessories, and in 1912 was appointed as Ford’s main dealer for London. Perrys expanded into other areas over the years and even acquired a tractor dealership in the 1940s. It was 1982 that we branched out from Ford into other franchises, starting with Vauxhall. This expansion into other vehicle brands and locations continued through to the end of the millennium and laid the foundations for the 51 dealerships and 30 locations you’ll find us at today. The pioneering launch of perrys.co.uk website in 1998 was one of our most significant milestones, the first dealer group to venture online.
