Working for us

Halfords aim to be the No. 1 destination for products and services that enhance customers' lives. Their product is varied and vast. Also, can boast in-store services delivered through their range of "Do It For Me" offers or through dedicated auto centres. Halfords Autocentres provide a range of services catering for the Car Maintenance market - services, MOTs through to complete vehicle maintenance packages.

In short, they aim to take the hassle out of customers lives while maintaining and growing service advantage. This makes Halfords a great place to work and provides real opportunities for career development.

Advise customers, in the stores, every day on the best products to meet their needs. And more and more they also work on cars and bikes, so customers don't have to. It's all about earning their trust and being helpful. In the Support Centre, they get to make decisions every day that impacts the business, whether it's choosing a new product line or helping to improve the performance of the stores.

Then there are the Autocentres, where some of the team started as apprentices, and others joined with experience. They all help each other to learn new techniques and get the customers' cars back on the road. And finally, they all rely on the logistics team to get everything they need to the right place at the right time.

Being a diverse and fast-moving business, they have ambitious plans for the future and every one of the team will play a part in their success. There are numerous opportunities to develop and now is a great time to join the team.
