Motorpoint Employees Celebrate

40 employees at the UK’s largest independent retailer of nearly new cars and vans gathered at stores across the Motorpoint network last week to celebrate some important long service work milestones in 2022.

Chalking up an incredible grand total of 743 years’ working for Motorpoint, the vehicle retailer’s employees clocked up this long service achievement with 40 team members reaching a range of work anniversaries between 15 to 24 years this year.

To help mark their career milestones, colleagues came together for a celebration photograph at various Motorpoint stores including Derby, Burnley, Glasgow and Newport in early July 2022. During the event staff shared some of their favourite stories about their best Motorpoint moments in their careers so far.

Ryan Cheyne, Motorpoint’s Interim Chief People Officer said: “It’s fantastic to be able to share this good news story about our long service employees – it’s an amazing total to have reached.

“We were recently named as the Number 1 Automotive Company To Work for by Best Companies and we recognise that our employees are the backbone of our business helping us to build the Motorpoint name to become the largest independent retailer of cars and vans in the UK.

“Some of our staff were with us at the start when our first Motorpoint store in Derby opened in 1998.  We are proud of them and recognise that their loyalty and commitment is crucial to our long-term success as we move into our 25th anniversary year in 2023”.

Friends for life and great working atmosphere
Commenting on her service anniversary, Customer Experience Marketing Manager, Edem Ankutse who has been with Motorpoint for 20 years and began her career as a Collections Cashier at the Derby store in 2002 said: “I have worked across a range of roles at Motorpoint and my favourite thing is the family atmosphere I have felt in every department/store I have worked at. I have made some friends for life working at Motorpoint. There’s been lots of highlights over the last 20 years, but I think getting my first managerial role in Birmingham then winning an award for that role in 2016 was a wonderful moment for me.”

John Hood, now Motorpoint’s General Manager of Trade Acquisition joined the company in 1998 as the manager of Motorpoint Derby said: “Since the early days Motorpoint has been forward thinking in its HR approach ensuring that young people coming into the business are able to develop their skills and careers – we have a strong culture of support here at Motorpoint.”
