Three recruitment agencies in the motor trade have made a pact with each other in a bid to ‘streamline’ the recruitment process.
Autotech Group, Glen Callum Associates and KPI People, have formed The Automotive Recruitment Alliance.
Collectively, each company’s recruitment specialism covers the entire automotive aftermarket from temporary vehicle technicians and MOT testers, permanent and interim technical and commercial staff, parts and customer service operatives, sales and marketing, through to senior board positions.
In August, Glen Callum Associates warned that job vacancies are at a high not seen since 1997 and the skills shortage means there is a distinct lack of available talent, which currently stands at a 24-year low.
On the formation of the new Alliance, Glen Shepherd, Director of Glen Callum Associates Ltd said: “The Recruitment Alliance is headed up by likeminded recruitment experts totally dedicated, committed and passionate about raising the hiring bar for the automotive sector.”
