    Rightmove is the great British web success story. We launched in 2000 and rapidly became the number one destination for UK property search.
    Rightmove is now the biggest home-grown web brand in the UK - in January 2013 our traffic levels were only surpassed by the global brands Facebook, Google, YouTube, eBay and Amazon. In March 2015 we saw our busiest month ever with over 115 million visits and 1.6 billion page views. This is a 19% increase in visits compared to March 2014.

    Despite this success, we remain a down-to-earth bunch. Our working culture is open, friendly and informal, with people from all areas of the business interacting freely.
    We want Rightmovers to be continuously developing themselves so we provide the support and opportunities for them to do that.
