An overview of our business
Our purpose is to lead car buying in the UK, whilst also evolving the wider automotive ecosystem. We aim to improve the process of buying and selling vehicles in the UK, by continually evolving the ecosystem to provide a better experience for consumers, retailers, and manufacturers alike.
Auto Trader is a 100% digital business. Starting life as a local classified magazine in 1977, we’ve grown and evolved alongside our customers. In 2013, we successfully completed the transition from a print title and became a fully digital marketplace. Our rich history gives us nearly 40 years of brand heritage and trust – unusual among online companies.
Auto Trader listed on the London Stock Exchange in March 2015 and is now a member of the FTSE 100 Index.
Our strategy is to become the most admired UK digital business. To achieve this we have built a digital culture that is values-oriented, customer-centric, and data-driven with a focus on an agile approach to change – and importantly underpinned by a diverse and inclusive workforce.
We are passionate, resilient, and have the conviction to do the right thing. We roll up our sleeves to get the job done.
We are always learning. We question why, we search for better ways, ask questions, and actively listen.
We are bold in our thinking, overcoming fears, challenging convention, and embracing change.
We are open, honest, approachable and we treat each other fairly. We recognize success in ourselves and others but admit and learn from mistakes.
