2019 Contractor Awards Winners Announced

This article was originally published on 28 December 2019

We are thrilled to officially announce the winners of our end-of-year awards, namely the Star Contractor of the Year 2019 and six Special Ambassador accolades, which have been created to recognise excellence, professionalism and commitment to Autotech Recruit.

Throughout the year, Autotech Recruit contract vehicle technicians and MOT testers are nominated by our regional consultants for Star Contractor of the Month awards, in recognition of outstanding professionalism in the course of undertaking their temporary vehicle technician/MOT tester duties whilst finding and filling our latest automotive job vacancies.


At the end of the year, one standout contractor is presented with a Star Contractor of the Year award. The winner receives an engraved trophy, a Red Letter voucher worth £250, and a Christmas hamper.


This year, we have also decided to present six contractors with a Special Ambassador award – an accolade for those who embody the ethos of Autotech Recruit and unfailingly represent our company’s core values of professionalism, reliability and integrity. Each one of our winners receives an engraved trophy and a £100 Amazon gift card.


Please read on to find out who the winners are…

Autotech Recruit Star Contractor the Year 2019

We are delighted to announce that this year’s winner of the Star Contractor of the Year award is… Peter Owens!

Star Contractor of the Year 2019

Peter is a very deserving winner and we are extremely proud to have a vehicle technician of his calibre and dedication in our network. Massive congratulations from all of us at Autotech Recruit, Pete!


A few words about our winner…


Pete started working for Autotech Recruit in 2015. Throughout this time Pete has been the finest example of what we could ever hope for in a freelance contractor. He never causes any issues or has any problems, is hardworking, reliable and most importantly, accurate with his work.


It is rare that Pete ever takes days off because he is always accepting work on behalf of Autotech Recruit – we actually have to tell him to take the days off that he is entitled to!


Working under his own limited business, Pete has always been one to help others out, offering plenty of advice to his fellow contractors on our Vehicle Mechanic & MOT Tester Hub. We often ask him to help when we need a longstanding colleague to help out a new starter at a client site, showing them the ropes and making sure they know all about the important things, like filling in timesheets and reporting for check-in with their consultant.


Pete has recently decided to slow up slightly, to spend more time with his family, as he has always been a heavy traveller for us. Driving up and down the country day in day out, starting his day before the sun rises and before a lot of us even consider getting out of bed. He does this with no quibble, happily taking on work in new areas and for new clients he isn’t familiar with, whilst also referring other potential contractors to us, spreading the word about the freelance revolution we very much believe in.


To top off a fantastic (nearly) 5 years with us, a few weeks ago, Pete showed how truly selfless he is by buying and providing the homeless with hot drinks and sleeping bags on his cold morning commute to work. Pete said he is very fortunate and grateful for the position he is in and also knows what it’s like to be where they are. It’s acts of kindness like this that make us proud to have Pete on board and representing us in the industry!

Autotech Recruit Special Ambassador Awards 2019

The Special Ambassador award recognises the contribution our loyal and regular contractors have made to our business in the past 12 months, not only in terms of doing a really great job but also for proving that contracting can be a very exciting career choice for vehicle technicians and MOT testers.


It gives us great pleasure to present you the six winners of this accolade…
