Home / News / The UK motor industry is praised for its efficiency

One of the leading reasons why the motor industry in the UK is so strong is because of the talents of the workforce. In July Professor Garel Rhys, an iconic figure and commentator on the sector revealed that the workforce is the most efficient in the whole of Europe. Official figures he quoted showed that 10.5 vehicles were made per employee in 2015. This is fantastic productivity and explains why vehicle production in that period reached such a height.

The efficiency of the workforce is fantastic but businesses need to work hard to maintain it and ensure they can satisfy demands. One of the trickiest aspects of this is ensuring they recruit the best staff at the right time. This takes a great deal of planning to ensure the right approach is taken.

At John Gibson Associates we have specialised in recruitment in the motor industry for many years, helping each and every client to fill a variety of jobs. As you can expect this has given us an unparalleled wealth of knowledge and experience. We can therefore offer a high quality service to every business in the sector looking at their staffing needs.

We understand that every business is unique and will experience demand differently. As a result while one recruiting solution can work wonders for one company it may be ineffective for another. This is why we provide a bespoke service every time, ensuring we address our client’s particular needs.

With different demand cycles comes different recruiting periods. In order to ensure that each business has the right staff numbers at all times they should look carefully at demand forecasts. They can then begin recruiting as far in advance as possible. As part of this it is important to think about periods for recruitment and training.
