our Colleagues, we’ll get it right for our customers, and we’ll continually evolve. That’s why we’re on a mission to deliver a world-class Colleague and Customer experience.

Where do you
At CarShop we want to shift-up a gear and change the automotive industry for the better, setting the standard now and in the future. The only way we'll do this is with a great team behind us.
Think of your career journey at CarShop as an actual journey. All journeys are unpredictable and can throw a number of challenges at you! Thing is, if you’re prepared then it’s likely that you’ll get to where you need to comfortably. At CarShop we have a very clear development journey, one which arms all colleagues with the right tools, training and support along the way.
We don’t want to brag but when it comes to training we’re on-point; we have a comprehensive eLearn suite, in-house training programme (with in-house trainers) and work with some excellent third parties to tailor training for bespoke requirements - just another thing which makes us an industry leader.
The best way to find out what it's like to work somewhere is by speaking to current colleagues.

Rewards and Benefits
We've found that rewarding our colleagues in the form of benefits is one of the best ways to ensure they remain DEVELOPED and ENGAGED, motivated and enthused. We're convinced this is why we have such a fantastic colleague retention rate and are an employer of choice within our industry (and probably would be in loads of other industries too).
