Using technology in automotive recruitment

Home / News / Using technology in automotive recruitment

Many of us will buy a device such as a smartphone or tablet on the basis of the many incredible tools and apps they offer, yet we still end up using the same ones over and over again. We all know that the technology available today offers us some powerful tools to achieve better, more efficient results in our work, yet there’s a tendency to stick with the way we have always done things. In the business world, this is perhaps most visible in the process of recruiting new staff.

As the leading name in automotive recruitment across the UK, we are always looking for new ways to use technology to enhance the interview and employment process. We know that many businesses keep on using the same techniques, using the rationale that they are tried, tested and proven to work. However, we don’t introduce technology just for the sake of it; instead, we incorporate technology which has been proven to deliver better results than the accepted standard.

For example, smartphones and tablets offer some of the most exciting new avenues for incorporating technology into recruitment. It would be rare for a prospective new employee not to have access to at least one of these devices. This means that, in the majority of cases, the initial interview can be held via a secure video connection between devices, saving time and eliminating the need to travel.

From our perspective, technology greatly enhances the position of businesses when evaluating and selecting candidates for a job. The decision makers at a company can have a dynamic exchange of information and ideas without all needing to be in the same room. Our system seeks to allow employers full access to all the information they require about candidates in order to make the most informed decisions. In this way, we maximise the chances of successful and long lasting appointments.

We were at the forefront in changing the way businesses in the sector conducted their automotive recruitment processes, and we are now leading the way with the means to achieve even better results going into the future. We are dedicated to using technology that enhances and improves the experience for both the employer and the potential new employee.
