About us

We started back in 1977, working as a local classified magazine across the UK. Originally called Trader Media Group, we became Auto Trader in 1988.

Our popularity meant we were regionally circulating over 350,000 copies by 2000, and by this time we’d already future-proofed ourselves by launching our first website back in 1996.

At every opportunity, we’ve pushed ourselves a bit further to make sure we’re giving you the best experience, and we’re still getting started.

And as a company and employer, we’ve continuously refined our culture and values to ensure we’re inclusive, inventive, and sustainable. You can learn more about working at Auto Trader here.
