A USED car marketplace is set to expand with 50 new jobs in the next six months after seeing “incredible growth”.

Motorway, an online marketplace for used cars, has grown from a team of 50 to 300 across the country, with 210 staff to be based in Brighton after its latest recruitment drive.

The company, which started in 2017, is also moving from Air Street to a larger office in West Street, Brighton.

James Wilson, chief operating officer for Motorway, said:  “Our customer service centre is at the very heart of our strategy to put customers first so investing in finding the best talent in Brighton is crucial.

“This new recruitment drive will make us one of the fastest growing employers in Brighton and we look forward to welcoming more local talent as we grow our business.

“Motorway is now selling over 8,000 cars a month, with a new sale being agreed every five minutes.

"This incredible growth would not have been possible without the amazing team we have in Brighton supporting our customers every step of the way.”
