Hippo Motor Group is looking to step up it’s expansion programme with the creation of a whopping 40 new roles across the company
The online firm is looking to fill 20 positions in its sales team with the option to either work from home or be based at the company’s Blackburn offices.
The group is also advertising a further 20 roles, spread across various departments, including an apprentice paint sprayer and a workshop technician.
Other key roles currently advertised include a head of commercial relations and procurement.
