As one of the leading names for UK automotive recruitment we carefully monitor the job market for the sector. In doing this we are able to identify areas where our services can bring success for both employers and candidates. At this time we have noted a shortage of technicians. This is a shortage which must be addressed urgently.
The shortage of technicians needed to fill motor industry jobs has been a frequent subject in the news during 2017. An interesting aspect of it has been that it is a worldwide trend. By looking at how other nations are managing this issue we can learn how to further enhance our role in the UK automotive recruitment sector.
We have noted a number of reasons for this shortage. An important one to highlight is the increased need for technicians. There are an ever increasing number of vehicles on our roads each passing year. For the last 5 years this increase has not been met with a similar rise in the number of technicians working in the sector.
Another factor is the specialist skills required for many types of vehicles on the road today. Technological advances have made cars considerably more complex equipment than they once were. In driving the automotive recruitment sector forward we always encourage applicants in the field to take courses and training so that they can master the new and required technology of today.
It should, however, be noted that it is not just new cars which need technicians. Coutts, famous for being the Queen’s bank, has noted that the value of classic investment cars has fallen by some 10% in the last year. The main reason for this is a lack of technicians able to restore such vintage vehicles.
We know that one of the best ways to address this shortage is through our automotive recruitment services. For many years we have been the number one name for several companies seeking to make long term, successful appointments. We are very proud of the record we have when it comes to the appointment of technicians to motor industry jobs.
