John Clark About Us

We are proud to have been awarded an AM Training Award for Best Training and Development Programme and we encourage our staff to take pride in their work and remain committed which is reflected in the outstanding level our service we offer.


As the group grew, we wanted to ensure that we retained the values we had established as a smaller family business, as we felt it was important that existing and new colleagues understood what beliefs and principals drove the company. We involved staff and customers in the process to help understand that what we believed were our core values were indeed part of our culture already and something that we lived by on day to day basis. One extremely strong message that emerged was that our colleagues were proud to work for the group and that the family ethos was an important element of how we worked together. Once we had all the feedback, we began to develop our values which are at the core of what we do and how we do it every day.

Passion - We are committed in everything we do and take pride in our roles knowing that we are always striving to be the best we can be.

Responsible - We want to make a difference in our every day work and be leaders in our industry. We will be accountable and learn from our mistakes, but most importantly recognise and celebrate success.

Integrity - It is important we are honest and work as a team in a respectful manner to uphold the high standards that help us to achieve an excellent customer experience and a positive working environment.

Dependable - We must ensure our colleagues and customers have confidence in us and that we will do what we said we would do. We must deliver on our promises, be trustworthy and transparent.

Enterprising - We encourage our colleagues to show initiative, pursue growth and change to develop personally and improve the business, however we must also be resourceful in what we do.


At John Clark Motor Group, we understand the importance of giving back and as a result every year we choose new charity partners that we believe we can help and support. In 2023, we are proud to be working with two organisations - Race Against Dementia and Guide Dogs Scotland.

Race Against Dementia

Over 55 million people worldwide currently live with dementia and unless something Is done to help prevent or to cure the disease, one in three people born today will die with dementia.

Race Against Dementia was established by Sir Jackie Stewart OBE following his wife Helen’s diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia. Sir Jackie was horrified to discover that there is currently no cure for dementia, a disease which devastates the lives of so many families.

RAD supports early career researchers in many aspects of dementia research and there are currently RAD Fellows and Associates based in the UK, Australia, USA, Europe, and South Africa. Their vision is a breakthrough in the prevention or treatment of dementia with the greatest of urgency.
