Despite our size and reputation, you may not have heard of AMS. This is because we put our client’s success ahead of our own.
We have been working with Automotive Manufacturers and Dealers for over 30 years.
We started developing used car programmes for most of Europe’s major automotive manufacturers in the early ‘90s. Today we offer more people, products and services than at any time in our history.
If you need a specialist team, on either a short or long-term assignment, we will recruit, train and manage the very best automotive talent available.
We don’t use sub-contractors. Every AMS employee is on our headcount and deployed through our extensive network of local branch offices both here in the UK and across Europe. We are registered as an employer in every market we operate in and tax and social security payments are made locally.
Manufacturers are turning to partners like AMS to deploy Dealer facing field people and internal support teams because they can set us sales targets and reward us when we achieve the objective.
We let manufacturers do what they are good at, designing, building and marketing cars. The rest, you can leave to us.
Deploying an AMS team offers considerably more flexibility and business advantages than hiring people yourself.
We are on a personal journey to deliver service excellence to our clients.
By finding and deploying talented individuals we ensure our business delivers integrity, an engaging management style and real-world, operationally effective solutions that increase sales and profits.
If you would like to meet us, we would be delighted to visit your organisation. Irrespective of where you are in the world, we enjoy working with creative and talented people and we won’t charge a service fee for working together on some early ideas to help shape the future.
Products and Services

Meet the Leadership Team
I’m the newest member of the head-office team here in the UK. Although I’m a qualified bookkeeper, my previous experience in automotive was running company car fleets.
My biggest fleet was over 100 vehicles from brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, VW and Vauxhall.
I’ve now joined Anne’s team and will support our employees across Europe with their general enquiries about all things finance. When I’m not working, you’ll find me looking after my family and making sure we all stay fit, active and healthy.
I’m looking forward to getting to know the AMS teams and working with our partner agencies across Europe for payroll salary and tax compliance purposes.
Finance is exciting. In fact, I’m responsible for our commercial relationship with payroll partners, lawyers and tax specialist in over 30 markets.
AMS always complies with the local labour code in the countries in which we operate and employee tax is always paid locally.
I am also here to support our employees with any, and I mean any, questions they have concerning their tax and social payments.
Here’s a bold statement: I don’t think anyone else knows as much as we do about operating a fully compliant business across so many markets!
Similar to Portugal, we employee over 20 automotive specialists across the Scandinavian region.
I head the team helping BMW dealers sell more used cars through the BMW Premium Selection and MINI NEXT used car programmes.
We also offer various automotive services and employ many people across the region in specialist positions. This includes the regional Business Sales team working with Opel dealers and small business customers.
We are also investigating our own Fleet Service Centre to help our manufacturer clients manage their own vehicle fleets.
We are being innovative in our thinking and pushing the boundaries of what partners like ours provide.
AMS is a big company operating in multi-markets supporting a wide range of specialist automotive assignments. However, we would like you to think of us a small business.
Everything we do revolves around supporting our clients and we always get this right. If we didn’t, I wouldn't sleep at night.
We are very flexible with the services and solutions we offer. We don’t need shareholder approvals to invest, we just do it. In fact, we are not funded by banks or credit facilities, we reinvest our profits back in our business and our people.
If you put your faith in AMS, I can assure that we’ll achieve the objectives you set for us.
While we employee specialist teams on long-term projects, used car development, profit improvement and sales makers, and we also employ many people on specialist assignments – Brand Managers, Dealer Marketing Specialists, CRM, Press Relations, Pool Car Management, Electric Vehicle Specialists – the list is growing.
I head up this important part of our business. It’s my job to add great people to our team, then look after these employees, agree on KPI targets with our clients and help our people achieve their objectives.
More than simple outsourcing (prohibited in many European markets), AMS people deliver a specialist service or specific assignments. I make sure we comply with the various local labour codes in respect of off-headcount employees, and that we deliver a measurable service, as opposed to a ‘hired hand’ we never speak with.
I get to engage with a network of candidates in many countries to participate in the various teams and special events we run for our people. If you join AMS, you join the family!
We employ over 20 automotive specialists in Portugal for various brands on a wide range of assignments. Working with Gareth, I coordinate operations locally.
I’m assigned to BMW on the Premium Selection and MINI NEXT used car programmes. I have a team of 4 dedicated to helping dealers sell more cars and improve profits. I think we have the most successful used car programmes in Portugal.
We have recently launched the Rhino VIP Event and this is selling a lot of cars. We also helped UK sales video provider CitNOW launch their products with BMW Portugal. In fact, we brought video to Portugal before any other brand had even considered using it.
Congratulations to BMW for being the first Brand to launch video as part of the dealer sales process.
