Hippo Motor Group is currently recruiting a Body Shop Prepper to prepare our cars that require cosmetic refurbishment. We sell over 550 vehicles a month that all go through our workshop and body shop before sale. We have a growing team of 15 who all work to ensure our vehicles are prepared to a high standard before they are delivered to our customers. This means our team repair and refurbish thousands of vehicles per year, so require individuals with previous experience in a similar capacity. Due to company success, Hippo is rapidly expanding, and last year opened a multi-million-pound Prep Centre. This provides an amazing and exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to be part of as well as working in the UK’s first state-of-the-art body shop.
