Top 5 South West London Jobs - Perfect Placement

South West London is home to a thriving automotive industry and could be the next brilliant step in your motor trade career. The capital of England has been a major settlement for two millennia, and was first founded by the Romans as Londinium in 50 AD. While there’s dozens of possible name origins and etymology theories, it is often thought that the name was derived from the Celtic Londinios, meaning “Place of the Bold Ones”!

Looking after the automotive recruitment needs of South West London is our Senior Recruitment Consultant, Liam Buffenbarger, who highly recommends applying for the motor trade vacancies listed below in bold London!

Currently undergoing regeneration, the Croydon area of London boasts museums, heritage tours, bars and clubs, the Millwall football stadium, and entertainment centres featuring VR gaming, trampolines, and paintball. Consider a motor trade vacancy in Croydon, possessing a well-established historical connection with car manufacturing and the automotive trade industry. Interestingly, Croydon’s name either originates from the Anglo-Saxon words croh denu meaning an iris flower valley, or the early British name Crai-din in reference to being a settlement near fresh water.
