Online used car marketplace cinch plans to recruit for more than 100 tech roles in a major expansion of its Manchester hub.
The firm, which aims to take ‘the faff’ out of buying and owning a used car, is operated by the Constellation Automotive Group.
The last year has seen digital car sales soar in popularity and as a result, cinch is expanding its Manchester-based tech and product teams in a partnership with Talent Works which will see more than 100 jobs created in the coming year alone.
“Workplaces and ways of working have seen much change in the past year,” said Jaz Chana, Technology Director at cinch.
“Our people have adapted incredibly well right across our business and kept their collective foot down on our accelerated growth plans. Now we’re in the enviable position of attracting more of the market’s best tech talent to exciting new opportunities in our burgeoning Manchester tech hub.
“The Talent Works team’s comprehensive approach to talent acquisition suits our ambitions. Their commitment to digital talent attraction and employer branding – alongside their tech recruiting teams – made them a standout for us.
“We’re confident Talent Works is the right partner to help us grow a talented and diverse team of tech superstars, at speed and scale, with their innovative mindset and sophisticated RPO.”
Neil Purcell, CEO at Talent Works, added: “Watching cinch’s growth over the past year has been incredible; it’s fantastic that they are now in a position to scale so quickly. We’re very excited to be partnering with them to deliver the talent they need, at scale.
“Talent Works is passionate about helping tech scaleups facilitate growth, and as we’re based in Manchester, it’s great to see cinch’s commitment to the city.
“The tech landscape is full of exceptional people, and the competition is fierce. This partnership will ensure that cinch has access to the best tech talent that will continue to propel its growth.”
