Job hunting can be a demanding task, especially if you are already in a job and are juggling your working day with looking for something new. Let’s face it, looking for new automotive jobs can feel like a full-time commitment. If you are an automotive professional looking for a new role and want to reduce some of the stress that comes with the job search, seeking the help of an automotive recruitment specialist is one of the best routes to take.
Here are our top 5 reasons why you should use an automotive recruitment specialist to find your next motor trade job.
1. It Saves You Time
As an automotive professional, you likely have little time in your evenings to spend scrolling through multiple job boards looking for new roles. Searching for jobs, reading through descriptions, researching brands and comparing salaries can take hours.
Automotive recruitment agencies take the job searching process out of your hands, saving time and energy so you can spend your evenings relaxing and doing the things you enjoy. They already know what automotive jobs are on the market and the hiring brands, making it easy for them to match your skillset with available positions.
2. They Are Experts In The Industry
The automotive industry can be a crowded one. With so many Dealerships, Bodyshops and Accident Repair Centres around, it can be challenging to know which brand and job will best fit you. Working with an automotive recruitment specialist can help you gain the best industry insight. Consultants know everything about the motor trade. From understanding employer needs to candidate expectations and impacts of supply and demand on the automotive job market, they are in the best position to advise you on all aspects of the industry and help you find your desired role.
3. They Guide You Through Each Step
Recruitment agencies will guide you through the entire process, from the initial discussion of what type of role you are looking for to your first weeks on the job. Your consultant will offer advice on improving your CV, provide interview tips, and regularly check in to ensure you have everything you need. Simply put, they will do everything they can to help you secure your new automotive role while keeping you updated every step of the way.
4. You Will Receive Valuable Feedback From The Interview Stages
As a job seeker, there is nothing worse than applying for a role, going for an interview and not hearing back from the company, or waiting a long time for a follow-up. When using an automotive recruitment agency, your recruiter will regularly be in contact with the client throughout the process. In turn, you can benefit from receiving valuable feedback at a faster rate while also having the chance to tell your recruiter how you felt about the company.
If you were not successful in a job after an interview, your consultant would be able to help you understand why and then help you strengthen your interview skills before the next one.
5. Access To A More Extensive Network
Motor trade recruitment agencies have access to a broader range of opportunities, thanks to the extensive circle of brands and contacts they’ve built up over the years. This means you will have access to more opportunities than you would if you were job hunting alone. Recruiters can point you towards vacancies that are hard to find or unique opportunities that may not be publicly advertised on job boards.
