Scottish-based car retailer Arnold Clark is to create 700 new jobs across the UK by early next year. The firm said it would create 500 new sales jobs, as well as recruiting 120 modern apprentice places and 80 people for supporting roles. The boost was partly down to the “stabilisation” of the car market because of the government’s scrappage scheme, Arnold Clark said.
The chancellor said the announcement was “good news” for the car market. Arnold Clark said there would be 155 new jobs in the Glasgow area, 25 in the Dundee area, 50 in the Aberdeen region and 130 in and around Edinburgh.
South of the border, 150 new posts will be created in the Manchester region, 20 in the Warrington area, 20 in and around Stafford, 80 in the Huddersfield area and 70 at an as-yet unnamed new site in the north of England.
