Our People Mission
Our people will feel empowered, so they can work, learn and grow together.
Our people will feel respected, included and individually important, so they can be more creative, progressive, and successful.
Our people will feel healthy, safe and together, so they can create a more fulfilled, productive and profitable workspace.
Our people will see us constantly pushing the boundaries and progressing in areas we need to improve.
Our core values are the central, underlying philosophies that guide Autotech Group and its employees. These beliefs also influence the way a company interacts with partners, clients, and shareholders. Our core values have been years in the making and through focus groups, brainstorming, looking to our customers, questionnaires and culture observation, the results speak for themselves.
We have collated four core values that will drive and motivate us, lead us to a greater sense of belonging and guide us to excellence.
Autotech Group Core Values are more than just words in a booklet or on a wall of the office – they are deeply rooted in the business because we all believe in them. Our entire workforce live these values day in, day out.

At Autotech Group, our people are our greatest asset. We pledge that we will continuously review, improve and do the best for our people where required.
One of our aims is to offer mutually beneficial company benefits and competitive salaries.
Our holiday year runs from 1st January to 31st December. All employees are entitled to 20 days holiday per annum, plus bank holidays. For part time employees this is pro-rata.
Additional holiday entitlement
After 2 years' service at Autotech Group, you will be entitled to 1 extra day annual leave (added from the following January).
After 4 years' service at Autotech Group, you will be entitled to a further 1-day annual leave (added from the following January), therefore after 4 years service, your holiday entitlement will be 22 days plus bank holidays.
Buying and selling annual leave
In December each year, we offer staff the opportunity to buy up to 5 additional days annual leave for the following year.
We also allow anyone who has annual leave entitlement over the statutory amount to sell days back to the business.
This benefit is available to all permanent employees. The benefit is three times your annual salary. You are able to nominate beneficiaries by completing a nomination form.
Every employee of Autotech Group, Recruit, Academy and Training receive an element of performance-based commission. Some roles are higher commissioned than others, but are all are rewarded for contributing to the business. We believe that commission shouldn't be a thing just for sales teams, but it should incentivise everyone!
We are working on a Group share scheme for the future so keep your eyes peeled.
We offer a pension plan administered by The Peoples Pension. You will be automatically enrolled onto the scheme after your probation period. Autotech Group will pay 4%.

This scheme offers employees £5,000-15,000 off an electric car, through government tax benefits.
Autotech Group also pay 50% towards the cost of an electric car charger to be installed at home.
Service length and employee age conditions apply.
Every employee has a personal development plan and is given a platform via their performance reviews to propose work based and personal development needs.
Continuous professional development records are expected across the business enabling us to promote from within and grow our own.
Our employees are key to our success. That’s why we encourage them to develop so they can move forward, find new challenges and opportunities, achieve their personal goals and get the most out of their career.
One of our People Strategic Plan goals is to Grown Our Own, but not just upwards. We want you to have the chance to move into different roles and into different areas if you’d like to expand your experience.
You’ll receive on-the-job training to help get you up to speed as quickly as possible, as well as having regular check-ins with your manager and annual performance reviews, where you’ll be able to discuss your long-term goals and aspirations.
Mentoring is a great way of learning from your peers. If you feel you would benefit from a mentor, talk to your manager.
