Car dealership to create 25 jobs at new site

Motorpoint is gearing up to open in Coventry

Derby-headquartered car dealership Motorpoint is set to open a huge new site in Coventry, creating 25 jobs.

Located off Jimmy Hill Way, the multimillion-pound outlet will be the 18th in Motorpoint’s growing network.

Its showroom was previously home to Brandish Vauxhall.

Work on the three-acre site is currently underway, with the new store expected to open in mid-October.

The site is expected to have room for 200 vehicles.

Motorpoint CEO Mark Carpenter 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, added: “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.

“We have a strong ethos of being part of the wider community in the areas where our stores are located; we have an active fundraising programme that supports local and national charities and events.”
