Congratulations to our dedicated contractor, Richard, who was recognised as Autotech Recruit’s Star Contractor of the Month for August 2018!

Richard joined Autotech Recruit as a freelance vehicle technician 18 months ago. Since then, he has mainly worked on longer term contracts, impressing both new and existing clients with his efficiency and professionalism. As his regional consultant pointed out, “he is the perfect contractor”. Richard never complains, always accurately completes his timesheets and sends them on time and is highly valued by our clients. Richard contracts with us through his limited company and, although originally apprehensive about setting up his own business, he now finds it very easy to manage with the help of his accountancy company and enjoys the tax benefits it brings.

Richard, thank you for your great work and well done from everyone at Autotech Recruit! Our Contractor of the Month receives a Certificate of Recognition and £100 worth of Love2Shop vouchers.

We asked Richard to share a few thoughts about being a vehicle technician and working with Autotech Recruit…

What made you become a technician?

My love of taking things apart. My Mum said I should learn to put things back together.

What is your favourite make of car and why?

My favourite car is my Honda CRV. Love the one you’re with. Two years, no faults.

What is the best car you have ever got to fix?

AC Cobra. What fun.

What is the best thing about being a technician?

All those people calling you up for help or advice. LOL.

If you weren’t a technician, what would you be?

A gardener. Different type of dirt.

What 3 words sum up your work with Autotech Recruit?

Flexibility, variation and ease.

What is your perfect Sunday?

Dog walk, lunch, a couple of beers and an afternoon nap (I am over 50, you know).
