Auto Trader

We’re Auto Trader, the UK’s leading automotive marketplace and a FTSE 100 tech-listed company, uniting the largest and most engaged consumer audience with the most extensive network of vehicle sellers. At our core, it’s all about people. We embrace diversity, celebrate our differences, and forge our own paths. Our six core values define our distinct culture, and our dedication to in-person collaboration sets us apart.

We employ 1200 colleagues across three sites: our headquarters in Manchester, with smaller offices in London and Hemel Hempstead.

Flexible working

Our hybrid model, Connected Working, combines the best of both worlds – office and home working. With Connected Working, you’ll have two fixed weekly office days dedicated to team collaboration. In addition to your fixed office days, we expect you to be in more than you’re out. You can choose the specific days that suit your work requirements, home commitments, and team needs.
