Top 5 Gloucester Jobs - Perfect Placement

Comfortably nestled between the breath-taking Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean, Gloucester is home to a thriving automotive industry and could be the next brilliant step in your motor trade career.

A city of many names, Gloucester was founded by the Romans in 97 AD as Colonia Glevum Nervensis (where “Glev” gets pronounced “Glaiw”), and its modern name is derived from the Welsh Caerloyw meaning “shining stronghold”. Indeed this could be where you pursue your shining dream of an impressive automotive career by applying for one of the motor trade job opportunities in Gloucester available through Perfect Placement. Whether you’re looking for an automotive administration role or one of the available HGV jobs in Gloucester, there will be a motor trade vacancy to suit you.

Built on historic foundations, Gloucester is marching forward in style with numerous tourist attractions and flourishing high street. Visit the 11th century Gloucester Cathedral and see if you can recognise which cloisters (aka stone archways) were used for corridor scenes in multiple Harry Potter films! Why not try one of the famous lamprey pie dishes, fished locally, which was once an ancient custom to gift this luxurious dish to the ruling sovereign for Christmas.

Or pop into one of the many great museums and art galleries like the Beatrix Potter Museum, celebrating her favourite story! “The Tailor of Gloucester” is the illustrated adventure of a Gloucestershire tailor whose work on a gorgeous waistcoat is finished by a group of grateful mice he had rescued from the cat, based on a real group of tailors in the city.

Once at the forefront of the industrial revolution due to the nearby deposits of iron, coal, and timber, Gloucester remains a meritorious city and hosts multiple automotive sales roles, parts advisor vacancies, dealership vacancies, and roles for technicians and workshop controllers.
