Auto Trader moves into top digital hubs

Auto Trader, the digital motoring marketplace, is relocating its two southern offices (Wimbledon and Reading) to 2 Pancras Square North, King’s Cross on 24 November.

Auto Trader says the move is “a reflection of the company’s aspiration to be one of the country’s leading digital businesses and will help it find and recruit the best digital talent for its expanding team”.

The consolidation of offices across the South-East will come five months after employees in the North of Britain moved into the First Street office in Manchester. The new Auto Trader centres are connected by direct train services and benefit from strong motorway connections, making collaboration much easier compared with a year ago when Auto Trader operated from 11 separate offices across the UK.

Google will be joining Auto Trader, and other media giants such as Havas Media Group, McCann Erickson, The Guardian Media group, Zone and AMS Media Group, in King’s Cross, helping cement the area’s growing reputation as a media hub for some of the biggest digital businesses.

“Moving to Kings Cross in London and to First Street in Manchester helps us integrate our resources and will ensure we give all our customers a better service,” Auto Trader’s director of advertising Chris Ward, explains. “An amazing office and modern working environment will also make it easier to recruit and retain the best talent.

“Having just two main offices for its 830 employees is part of Auto Trader’s strategy to integrate all resources, brands and products and focus on its core business. The 37-year-old company has undergone a cultural revolution during the last year, and the two new offices are further evidence of a value-driven and customer focused culture serving the needs of 12,000 automotive retailers and 11 million monthly users.”
