Client Testimonials

We have used the services of Autotech Recruit Ltd at Huntingdon Audi on several occasions and have been very pleased with the quality of personnel they supply. We have had two technicians/ MOT Testers, both of which have been very efficient.
Gil Collins, Huntingdon Audi
I was sceptical about bringing in an agency tester as our reputation with our customers is so important. You explained from the start how your own reputation is so important too – we’re looking for the same thing.
Reuben Shaw, SureFix Ltd (Southampton)
We now use Autotech Recruit on a regular basis to cover labour shortfalls. This means we are able to maintain labour sales and customer satisfaction, especially in holiday periods. I would have no hesitation in recommending Autotech Recruit Ltd.
Barry Higgins, Thame Service Station
The process was swift and efficient and the contractor did a fantastic job working with our team. Faye at Autotech Recruit was extremely helpful and we will definitely be using their services again in the future for both holiday and sickness cover.
Joanna Bowler, J B Autos UK Limited
I have been using Autotech Recruit for the past few months. The level of Vehicle Technicians they have supplied us on a temporary basis have been outstanding!
Mark Pallet, Vantage Toyota (Solihull)
Autotech Recruit Ltd provide a realistic solution to the frustration and expense associated with staff absence. The temporary technicians they supplied were competent, hard-working, conscientious, and required minimal supervision.
Alicia Matthews, G & A Commercials (Bridport) Ltd
Jason, the Consultant was excellent, professional, not pushy and supplied exactly what we asked for. The contractor was great, slotted quietly into the team with no fuss. I’m glad our companies have found each other.
Kellie Russell, Chandlers Brighton BMW
Autotech Recruit are easy to engage with and make a real effort to fully understand what you are looking for in a candidate, not just in terms of skills, but also in terms of personality. I would recommend Autotech Recruit and continue to use their services.
Melanie Caves, Grouptyre
We were looking to recruit two new employees and on both occasions Lee Parr delivered a portfolio of excellent CVs with the correct background. It enabled us to quickly interview and appoint the required staff. I would highly recommend Autotech Recruit for their professionalism.
James McClean, Compressortech
Thank you for the service your company provided for us over the last few months. The contractor worked hard, he was thorough, he picked up our ways and standards very quickly and he was generally a really nice guy. I have recommended your services to all the other Service Managers within our group and won’t hesitate to use you again in the future if needs be.
Amy Jarrett, H.A.FOX Jaguar
I have been delighted with the gents that you sent to us. They were all nice people carrying out their task in a professional manner. This was the first time in 30 years that I experienced a need to use the services of an agency and have been delighted with the response. It really got us over a very difficult period!
Sid Swaine, Dorking Service Centre
Can I just say on behalf of myself and the team, what a pleasure it was to have your contractor here. He was a massive help and if it would have been possible, I would have him here permanently. During the short time he was here, he not only carried out the tasks he was employed to do, he helped out with repairs when it was quiet on the MOTs and also took time to guide the apprentice in the jobs that he was assigned to do too. He played a massive part in the team and team work. I cannot commend him high enough.
