If you’re looking to have a career in the automotive industry, it’s a good idea to know or understand which part of the industry you are interested in and how to guide your career down that route.
Once you’ve started your automotive career path, there are many opportunities to grow and learn new trades in order to move up the ladder and to have a full and successful career.
Think about your personal goals, what you are interested in or have a passion for along with the type of environment you’d want to be working in. This is a good place to start when considering any career but especially a job in the automotive industry with the number of opportunities that are available.
Narrowing down your path and having some guidelines can help with choices. Some people are interested in the design side of the industry, while others are focused on the building, fixing or repairing. Some have a head for the technology while others are focused on the technicalities.
Here at Autoskills, we focus on three main areas:
- Truck and bus
- Bodyshop / accident and repairs
This is where our expertise lies and even within these three sections, there are vast amounts of opportunity and room for growth. We’re here to support your career to help anyone looking to gain a career or transition into a career within these areas.
How can an agency, Autoskills in particular, help you in your job search?
By using a recruitment agency for your job search, you will be matched to particular jobs that match your experience, skills and passions. Often jobs are not advertised publicly but are given to agencies to find the best talent available. Even if you’re doing a good job with your searches, you may miss the speciality positions that go directly to an agency.
Agencies also work closely with sought-after automotive companies. They know the company and the management well and understand what’s needed for each position. This puts an applicant in good stead for any job that they are matched with as they have been hand-picked to apply for a particular position.
As an addition, even after you have been offered and have accepted a new position, an agency will follow up with the applicant and the organisation to see how the role is working out and to make sure everything is going to plan. We’re in it for the long run - just like you are!
The Autokills team is driven by a single objective, to accelerate your business through the placement of the right talent. We achieve this through applying our passion and the expertise that our team has accumulated over 20 years’ experience in the automotive business.
