Zuto motors ahead

A North West car finance specialist which has been touted by international investment bank GP Bullhound as a potential unicorn business is continuing to invest in the region.

Macclesfield-headquartered Zuto is planning to recruit 70 people by the end of the year with 60 roles available now following yet another solid year of growth.

The leading broker with operations in Macclesfield and central Manchester is currently recruiting across engagement, finance, sales, marketing and technical departments.

Of these vacancies, 50 sales executive positions are available at the firm’s head office in Macclesfield where candidates can expect on target earnings (OTE) of £45,000 per annum.

The £20+m turnover firm, which employs 300 people, supports UK car buyers in both the search and funding of their vehicle and to date has helped more than half a million people find car finance.

Since January, Zuto has been experiencing month on month record performance and in February was also ranked the 18th Best Company to Work For by Best Companies and the Sunday Times.

Sarah Brooks-Pearce, head of talent at Zuto said: “There’s never been a better time to join our company.

“Record performance means we need to strengthen our team to continue to deliver a first class experience to our customers.

“Unlike other car finance companies, Zuto provides one-to-one support for customers through the entire car buying process.

“We not only help secure finance, but will help in the vehicle search, complete valuations and vehicle history checks and even negotiate with the dealer on the customer’s behalf.”

Speaking about the company’s listing in the ‘Top 100 Best Companies to Work For’, James Wilkinson, CEO and co-founder of Zuto, praised the firms recent growth.

He added: “Our team of Zutonites has grown substantially in the last 12 months and we’ve invested an incredible amount of time in ensuring everyone can get true satisfaction from their role.

“We look for people who are always prepared to innovate and change and ask if the work they are doing truly helps the customer.

“I am great believer in empowering people to make a difference and by creating that kind of energy across our business, we can be sure we’re all striving for the same goal.”
