Message from our Motor Recruitment Expert & Founder – John Gibson

Welcome and thank you for visiting.

There are a lot of inferior products on the market today described using superlatives, “must haves”, “essentials”, “World class”, since embarking on my Motor Industry career on the shop floor I am constantly aware that words are cheap, it’s not the thought that counts – it’s the action!

The difference between mediocrity and excellence lies probably in the last 10% between the two, attention to detail, staying in front, consistently delivering excellence and value for money. It’s not rocket science; it’s about ways of adding value.

We have never stood still, we were one of the first internet driven automotive jobs & automotive recruiters, first with psychometric assessment, first with regional offices and state of the art, industry leading management reporting systems. This kind of commitment keeps us ahead of the game and you ahead of the competition.

Wildlife conservation has been our corporate theme for a number of years, supporting the World Wildlife Fund, World Society for the Protection of Animals, the Born free Foundation and Dogs Trust and we are grateful for the fine work that they do. I hope that you enjoy the images.  Please also note that John Gibson Associates is proud to be a member of WWF-UK’s Business Club – a community of enterprises who are supporting WWF-UK’s urgent work. By joining WWF’s Business Club, John Gibson Associates is raising vital funds to help WWF’s mission – to build a future where people live in harmony with nature by conserving biological diversity, promoting sustainable use of natural resources, reducing wasteful consumption, cutting pollution and carbon emissions.
