James Broadhead

Close Brothers Motor Finance is celebrating it’s 30th year by rewarding all employees with a birthday day off.

The Doncaster dealership first opened in and has claimed to be the largest employers in the Yorkshire region.

The firm works with  over 8,000 motor dealers and has helped finance loans worth nearly £7bn pounds against almost 100,000 vehicles.

Close Brother Motor Finance has expended its network to 13 offices across the UK and provides dealers with support and guidance.

The firm also has branches in the Channel Islands, offices in Jersey and Guernsey, as well as a division in the Republic of Ireland.                                                         

Close Brothers Motor Finance’s chief executive James Broadhead said: “Our 30th birthday is a significant landmark for the business and a testament to our progress and the development we are making across the network.

“Helping to ensure local dealers are supported and offering face-to-face time is a crucial part of our business, and our continued success couldn’t have been achieved without our loyal employees.

“To show our appreciation, I’m delighted that they too can celebrate their birthday with an extra day of annual leave. I am greatly looking forward to the next chapter in Close Brothers Motor Finance’s history.”

To mark the milestone birthday, Close Brothers Motor Finance is extending the celebrations beyond the company by rewarding all employees with an extra day of annual leave to celebrate their own birthday.

For birthdays that fall on a non-working day, employees will benefit from having the next closest day off.

Other celebrations include, a 30th birthday logo and a dealer prize draw to win a box at a premier league football game, limited edition stationary and 30 year old bottles of wine.
