Auto Trader has unveiled a new careers website created by digital design studio magneticNorth.

The new site aims to attract a range of candidates, from developers to account managers, and to accurately reflect Auto Trader’s company culture. 

Jane Fitzmaurice, Resourcing Partner from Manchester-headquartered Auto Trader, said: “We have some of the most exciting and inspiring opportunities. Our new career site will provide an improved candidate experience and the chance for individuals to get an insight into our working life so they can make the right choice for them.

“We wanted to open up the accessibility of the site not only because this reflects our inclusive company culture but also because we wholeheartedly believe that a diverse workforce creates better products.”

The site, which aims to achieve an AA rating for accessibility, was designed and developed by Manchester’s magneticNorth, working with Auto Trader’s own ‘Accessibility Guild’, which champions accessibility throughout the organisation.

Ian Wareing, Senior Account Manager at magneticNorth, added: “Striving for an intuitive, accessible design seems like a no-brainer but it’s something that a lot of career sites ignore. 

“With much of Manchester and the UK fighting over tech talent, this site helps open up Auto Trader’s job roles to a wider pool of applicants, also giving light to the company culture of one of the UK’s most exciting tech companies.”
