Brighton, 23rd March 2022Motorway, the used car marketplace, has today announced a significant recruitment campaign in Brighton to hire 50 staff over the next 6 months, making it one of the city’s fastest growing businesses with 210 staff overall.

This investment into Brighton talent follows 300% YOY growth of the Motorway business, which has taken the wider team from 50 to 300 in the last 18 months.  Motorway now plans to increase the size of its flagship customer service centre, based in Brighton, by 30% to support the ever-growing consumer demand for a quick and easy way to sell a car, for a great price from the comfort of home. 

To support this new recruitment drive, Motorway has recently moved into larger office space in Brighton, relocating from Air Street to West Street in the centre of the city. The new offices will house up to 270 employees, and include a meditation and prayer space as well as a Brighton beach themed social space and cafe for staff. 

James Wilson, COO of Motorway, says:

“Motorway is now selling over 8,000 cars a month, with a new sale being agreed every five minutes. This incredible growth would not have been possible without the amazing team we have in Brighton supporting our customers every step of the way.

“Our customer service centre is at the very heart of our strategy to put customers first so investing in finding the best talent in Brighton is crucial. This new recruitment drive will make us one of the fastest growing employers in Brighton and we look forward to welcoming more local talent as we grow our business.”

In addition to offering highly competitive salaries, Motorway has a people-first approach towards its benefits scheme, with access to high-quality health & wellness options so the team feels supported to do their best work. Staff benefit from a personal learning and development budget to spend on a wide range of books, courses and conferences. Subscriptions to services like Headspace and Audible are also included alongside access to an electric car leasing scheme, private healthcare, pension, enhanced parental leave and a cycle to work scheme.
