About the employer

Clarks of Stourbridge is a family-owned business proud to have served motorists in Worcestershire and the West Midlands for just over 70 years. The business was first founded by Mr Derrick Grieveson in Worcester in 1953 and operated under the name of Worcester Carsales. The dealership moved in 1963 to a new site in Hylton Road, Worcester, and 1973 saw Mr Grieveson's son and current Managing Director, Mr Stuart Grieveson, join the family company. In the last 35 years the company has acquired many new car franchised dealerships in the West Midlands. During 70 years of trading, the family-run business has seen three generations of the Grieveson family enjoying working for the firm, and to date, three of Mr Grieveson's grandchildren work within the group. The family's philosophy is if you put customers first then they will do the same for you. Worcester Carsales continues to hold to this tradition of putting the customer at the heart of all the company does. The rewards of this success are then invested back in the business - in developing first class staff, delivering first rate service, in state-of-the art facilities. The family philosophy extends far beyond the Grieveson name, to every single member of the Worcester Carsales team, and to the customers themselves. It's a unique belief and it provides a unique experience.
