About Halfords

Halfords are the UK's leading retailer of automotive and cycling products and are a leading operator in car servicing and repairs.

People are at the heart of their success, they have created a culture of engagement where people are close knit and hands-on, where energy and enthusiasm drives career development, and where employees will be inspired to embrace challenge as opportunity.

Halfords are already recognised as a great place to work, but they are doing everything they can to be even better for people who share the confidence, inclusive approach, integrity and ambition that has brought so much success to the business.

Team members always put themselves in their customer's shoes and have a passion for an area of the business that they work in, whether they love cycling, cars or camping. This is what enables Halfords to truly advise customers and to earn their trust.
