MotoNovo Finance is creating 200 new jobs

The Cardiff-based financial services provider has announced it’s creating around 200 new jobs in conjunction with the launch of its new careers website.

MotoNovo is expecting to recruit for the 200 new positions over the course of the next year, with roles in customer care, sales, collections, marketing, and credit analytics as well as department heads and senior leadership positions.

The One Central Square firm is expected to add more than £18m to the Welsh economy in salaries alone. 

Since moving into newer, larger headquarters back in 2016, MotoNovo has already set about diversifying its services, entering new markets and making a significant investment into its consumer division.

Due to launch in 2018, the site, which has been earmarked to rival AutoTrader, will see around 20 roles being created to support its operations across dealer and consumer support, marketing and analytics.

Since the companies move to a new state-of-the-art work environment in 2016, MotoNovo has maintained a high-quality working culture which includes sending 60 staff members on an all-expenses-paid trip to Barcelona and themed nights out to celebrate company achievements.

The company is also heavily involved in community work including charity rugby days and ‘right to read’ days, as well as raising over £60,000 for charitable funds since the start of the year.

Katie Feagan, recruitment manager at MotoNovo Finance said: “We’re thrilled to launch our new site and to be able to offer a wide range of roles over the coming year.

“Our fast-paced growth is a sign of further exciting things to come from MotoNovo and an expansion of the services we’re able to offer.”

“As well as job listings, also features a plethora of useful information that provides applicants insight into life and the fun, open working culture we work hard to maintain at MotoNovo.”

“Our employees enjoy a range of benefits including a 10% employer pension contributor, medical insurance through BUPA, a day off for their birthday, a discount shopping service and much more.”

Launching as Carlyle Finance in 1972 by Sir Julian Hodge, MotoNovo Finance rebranded to its current identity in 2012, following a period of sustained growth that managed to weather the 2008 financial crisis.

With profits of £69million over the last financial year, the company – which offers finance for cars, vans and motorbikes – is one of the most significant players of the Welsh business landscape.
