Car dealer to take on more staff amid booming sales

Europe’s largest independently owned, family-run car dealer, Arnold Clark, is looking to recruit one hundred light vehicle technicians within Scotland’s central belt. 

The recruitment drive comes in the wake of news that 2.47 million new cars were registered in the UK last year - a 9% increase in UK new car sales. 

An improved economic climate has seen a rise in used car sales too, with Arnold Clark reporting an increase of almost 17% in its 60th anniversary year. 

Eddie Hawthorne, Arnold Clark’s Managing Director said: ‘The continuous growth of the business has meant opportunities have opened up for 100 light vehicle technicians to help keep our customers on the road. With great career development opportunities and one of the best packages in the industry, we are expecting a huge number of applicants.’ 

Arnold Clark sells cars from twenty-four different new car manufacturers including Mercedes, BMW, Chrysler and Volkswagen, providing technicians with the opportunity to work on a range of vehicles. 

For technicians looking for a new challenge, joining Arnold Clark brings one of the best employment packages in the industry.  Jobs come with a multitude of benefits, such as flexible working hours, including weekends, as well as career development opportunities.
