New Car Specialist

Hippo Motor Group is recruiting for a new car specialist to join our growing new car department.

The role will be focused on efficiently finding the best quotes for our customers, communicating with our panel of lenders, and providing information to the sales team on stock availability and price.

You will also be responsible for maintaining and updating the offers and prices of vehicles on our website.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone with some basic experience in the motor trade and who is wanting to develop a career in a forward-thinking and innovative company.

Continual business growth provides opportunities for our employees to develop and exceed within each role.

Due to Hippo expanding so quickly, we have achieved the success and image of a main dealership with the atmosphere of a family-run business.

We are serious about what we do and being the best, but we always ensure we have fun as we do it. This is reflected in our extremely low staff turnover rate.
