The Motoring and Automotive Trade Association (the SMMT) have quoted the above figures and as a very busy specialist Automotive Recruitment agency working within the UK we don’t doubt them.
The UK automotive industry is experiencing a huge level of investment, Nissan have just opened a new battery plant in Sunderland, the Coventry and Warwickshire region has recently had just under £2 Billion pounds of investment in various projects and Aston Martin are due to start rolling cars off their new Welsh factory in 2019. On the aftermarket side of the industry, exhibitions such as Automechanika are becoming larger year on year, a great measure of the growth of the aftermarket, in addition to this, Schaeffler have upgraded their aftermarket business to create a fully autonomous division, Ford are looking to recruit 1,000 technicians and just last year The Parts Alliance was purchased by Uni–Select for a huge £205m.
In short, as the industry continues to grow and enjoy continued investment, the benefits of a career within the automotive industry are apparent.
