Job Details

We're cinch. Our mission is simple - remove the faff from buying and changing cars, giving customers more choice, with more ease. That's it. We're putting drivers first and we've ripped up the rule book to make sure that happens.

cinch lets people find just-the-right used car online from an ever-growing pool of quality-checked choices. Then we deliver the car to its new owner with a 14-day money-back guarantee. And if they've part-exchanged on their current car, we'll even take that one away. Now that's faff-free.

We're a customer-first ecommerce business with huge ambition, already driving exponential growth. And we have an exciting roadmap of innovative products to grow our customer offering as preference for buying cars online grows.

cinch is a new-to-market brand backed by the Constellation Automotive Group. That means we're part of a family including BCA and We like to keep good company.

Diversity and inclusion

cinch wants to help all kinds of people in the UK find and buy a car. So it makes good sense to have all kinds of people working with us on the challenge. Conversations and the decisions they lead to are better for featuring different voices. Representation matters.

And doing your job while not being your authentic self is not faff-free. Being free to be the best of who you are as you soar to professional greatness is the kind of business we commit to creating, as one.


We've attracted some of the smartest folks around. Right now, we need one more. Do you have a faff-free filter? Do you like being part of energetic, open-minded and passionate teams?
