Autotech Recruit 5This month Autotech Recruit celebrates the 5th anniversary of its founding!

The company was established in December 2010 by Gavin White, Stephen Hughes and Andrew Sly, who came together with a drive rooted in their industry expertise for starting a company that would help garages struggling with skill shortages improve their performance by providing services of temporary MOT Testers and Vehicle Technicians. What started as a home-based business, has developed into a leading staffing and recruitment agency, growing twofold year on year in terms of contractor numbers, turnover and gross profit.

Today, our services regularly help an array of clients all over the UK, including national retail groups, independent garages, main dealer groups and government organisations, filling both temporary and permanent positions nationwide for most of the leading names in the automotive industry.

None of the Autotech Recruit’s success would have been possible without our fantastic MOT Tester and Vehicle Technician contractor network. In 2015 alone they have completed over 150,000 labour hours and carried out nearly 95,000 MOT tests on behalf of our clients. Autotech Recruit has also placed nearly 1,000 skilled candidates into permanent positions throughout the automotive industry.

Our office team have been the company’s driving force for the last 5 years and have always worked to the highest standards. All of the company’s recruitment consultants boast an unrivalled experience and high understanding of both automotive and recruitment industries and are affiliate members of the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI). From its inception, Autotech Recruit has closely cooperated with Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and is also a member of Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo).

Managing Director Gavin White said “Five years ago we launched Autotech Recruit with the mindset that we’re creating an innovative service that will help the automotive industry struggling with skill shortages by delivering a flexible workforce of MOT Testers and Vehicle Technicians. Since then the company has grown beyond our expectations and this milestone is a great moment to sincerely thank all our clients, contractors and candidates for contributing to the continuous growth of Autotech Recruit in the past 5 years and helping us build a reputation as a leading automotive recruitment agency.”

“We feel like the best is still to come and we will continue doing our best in serving the automotive industry,” Gavin White added.
