This article was originally published on 12 December 2023

As we near the end of 2023, it's an opportune moment to seize the exciting prospects that lie ahead. Why wait for the new year to make a fresh start in 2024? December is the perfect time to begin your job search in the automotive aftermarket.

2024 is on the horizon

Why Start Your Job Search in December?


Less Competition

Many job seekers believe that companies don't hire in December, so they may delay their job search until the new year. This can result in fewer applicants for open positions, which gives you a competitive edge. Remember, the early bird gets the worm, and proactive job seekers often secure their ideal roles.


Preparation for January Hiring

While some companies may slow down their recruitment processes in December, they often resume full swing in January. By starting your job search in December, you can position yourself ahead of the curve and be ready for the increased hiring activity in the new year.


Goal-Setting Time

The end of the year is a natural time for goal-setting. Use this time to evaluate your career goals, update your CV, and prepare for your job search in the coming year.


Temporary Opportunities

Many workshops and garages need temporary help during the Christmas season. Taking on a contract position can be a foot in the door and may lead to a permanent position later on.

Don't let the calendar dictate your career moves. Begin your job search now and pave the way for a successful and fulfilling professional journey in the automotive aftermarket.


Whether you're a skilled vehicle technician, an experienced MOT tester, a customer-focused service advisor, or a knowledgeable parts advisor, Autotech Recruit offers a wide range of exclusive contract and permanent positions tailored to your skill set and aspirations.
