IMI CALLS ON BEST AND BRIGHTEST

by

The IMI is calling on young people to seek a new challenge in the automotive sector as part of National Apprenticeship week.

The group says young people need to take a fresh look at the motor trade and consider an automotive apprenticeship. The IMI thinks that because technology on modern vehicles is increasing at such a fast rate, the need for the best and brightest technicians to start working on those vehicles is greater than ever. As a whole, the motor industry contributes £25 billion to the UK economy.

IMI Chief Executive Steve Nash said: “We have a lot to do in improving perceptions of the automotive industry, as it’s not generally a sector that’s seen as a career of choice.  However, the reality is that the sector offers fulfilling and challenging careers that are much more than just a job.

“We are pleased to support National Apprenticeship Week as part of our continuing efforts to attract bright talent into the industry capable of developing the skills and knowledge required to keep abreast of rapidly advancing technology on modern day vehicles.  The automotive retail sector continues to play a significant role in the UK economy, so it is essential that it attracts suitably qualified young people and equips them with the skills for future success.”
