Motorpoint announces major Midlands expansion

Motorpoint will create 25 new jobs when it opens a new store in Coventry this autumn.

The multi-million-pound three-acre site is part of a nationwide expansion and will have space for 200 vehicles.

Work on the site is underway now and the new store is expected to open for business in mid-October. Recruitment is also in progress with senior and trainee roles in sales and service, administration and vehicle preparation all available at the Coventry store.

Mark Carpenter, Motorpoint CEO said: “We are excited to be bringing Motorpoint to Coventry. It’s one of the best-connected cities in the UK and that means car buyers across a wide area can enjoy the many benefits Motorpoint brings to the retail market for nearly new vehicles.

“We are focussed on giving our customers the widest possible choice for the best possible value and affordable cost and finance – that has never been more important than in today’s financial climate.

Chris Goodison, Motorpoint Coventry’s regional retail director, said: “We’re really looking forward to opening the new store in Coventry and to be able to start meeting customers and helping them find the right car for the right price. We are extremely proud of our company culture and our record as an equal opportunities’ employer. We place great emphasis on providing an exceptional working environment where our staff enjoy a fantastic range of benefits and there is wealth of opportunity for career development and progression within Motorpoint.
