The Recruitment Roadshow!

It is key to our Recruitment Team to understand the different challenges hiring managers face when recruiting.  

At Cox Automotive the Manheim Auction business has 17 locations, each with it's own complexities, diverse demographics and competitors.  

So, the team went on their very own Rockstar Roadshow and visited 5 of our Manheim Auctions Centres in the South to meet the team and get to know that business.

They gained a greater understanding of each of the Auction Centres and gained insight into how each site is unique and what exactly what kind of candidate will be just perfect for them! 

They met some fabulous team members along the way who are passionate and work exceptionally hard to deliver a great experience for both our customers and our candidates.

If you are interested in a career at one of Auction Centres, please take a look at the various opportunites we currently have under "Jobs" or connect with us to be kept up to date when any new vacancies come along!
