The vision at Cox Automotive is to transform the way humanity buys, sells, owns, and uses vehicles. As the world's largest automotive services organisation, the company has the broadest, deepest, and most authoritative overview of the used-vehicle ecosystem. Cox Automotive connects the wholesale market at every stage of a vehicle's life with physical and digital solutions, insights, and expertise – and it also helps retailers to sell more cars.

Customers include many of the world's most successful manufacturers, fleets, and dealers. They depend on the Leeds-based family business to help them maximise the potential of their stock, to deliver efficiencies and enable new opportunities. From buying to disposal, to sales and marketing, Cox Automotive has a unique ability to both see the bigger picture and be hands-on with the detail.

All of this is possible thanks to an incredible team of motivated and passionate people, the company says. Cox Automotive is dedicated to making the organisation a great place to work, not only because it's the right thing to do, but also because the business knows that if it looks after its people, they'll look after the customers.

Cox Automotive believes that how it tackles business is just as important as what it does, and its values and guiding principles underpin the company culture. Feedback is taken seriously, and the ambition is to create a truly inclusive workplace, and one where everyone can be their true self.

Quote from the top...
Cox Automotive team members are what make us successful in what we do. But they are also responsible for the great workplace culture we have in our business, and we had our highest ever engagement score in last year’s b-Heard survey. As a result, we learned a huge amount about what is most important to our team members and vitally, what we as a company can do to make our workplace even better. We understand the importance of creating an environment where every single team member feels comfortable being their true, authentic selves at work and, most importantly, that they feel valued for who they are. Thanks to the honest feedback of over 80% of our team members in 2021, Cox Automotive is officially the fourth best company to work for in the UK automotive industry and the 18th best company to work for in the UK as a whole. As an organisation, we are committed to continuing to engage with our team members to ensure that their time spent with us is enjoyable and fulfilling and continually improving.
