Cardiff-based MotoNovo Finance No. 12 in the UK’s Best Companies to Work for


MotoNovo Finance is proud to have been recognised for the third successive year in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for as the 12th Best mid-sized organisation to work for in the UK.

Rapid growth in headcount and business and a multi-million investment in an all-new state-of the-art headquarters building in the heart of Cardiff’s growing financial district have been major projects in the expansion of MotoNovo Finance over the last 12 months. Despite these major changes, the wider ‘Team MotoNovo’ continues to view the business as a great place to work and with the extra space and facilities for its team, the business is keen to rise higher in the overall rankings in the year ahead.

motoIn March 2016, MotoNovo announced that it was set to create more than 580 new jobs – more than doubling staff numbers, with an aim to bring total headcount to nearly 1000 by 2021. The team is well on track to deliver on these ambitious targets with the business delivering yet another record sales performance and with plans now well advanced to move into new financial services markets.

The people who make up ‘Team MotoNovo’ are the key to this continuing success as the business’ Group CEO Mark Standish recognises as he paid credit to the team around him;

“We have a long-held vision; to be recognised as the UK’s leading independent motor finance company. ‘Leading’ has always been defined as having the Best People, Best Products & Services and delivering the Best Results.  The key foundation stone for all of this is having the Best People.

“Recognition in these prestigious awards for a third consecutive year is very gratifying, especially since it comes from team member feedback and against the backdrop of a major change project. Fuelled by the energy of our team, these are exciting times for all of us in MotoNovo and we can all look forward to the months and years ahead with real optimism.”
