"I have been working as a contractor for six years and can honestly say it is the best working decision that I have made. I like the flexibility of being able to work when I want to work and keep my weekends free for family and hobbies."


“I find you get so much more appreciated than working permanently. But the most important thing is that I can spend time with my family and not miss my child growing up.”


“Working as a temporary technician allows me to do spontaneous things with my family. I don't have to get involved with the politics of a garage, but I am always treated like one of the lads.”


On starting work with Autotech Recruit in August 2014 I had very little idea of how many different automotive companies I would be working for. In this time I have always been very busy with little or no down time due to lack of contracts. The work is challenging as we repair all makes of vehicles and I find working with different people throughout the country has given me more confidence in myself. I found the consultants I have worked for very helpful. My current consultant has been very professional towards me making me feel like a valued team member. Autotech Recruit are willing to work with me by giving me time to do all the things I like to do. I don’t work Saturdays now which helps me do more of my hobby teaching people to scuba dive. I have always promoted Autotech Recuit to other people I meet as a professional and caring company to work for. I’m looking forward to a long and very busy time with Autotech Recruit.


“I am semi-retired but temping allows me to keep my hand in and I can pick and choose when I work."


I had hesitations on joining Autotech Recruit Ltd: Would I fit in? Are my standards good enough for the company? I need not have had any. I was made to feel at home from day one. The team have looked after me very well.
Some of the best things about working for Autotech Recruit are the flexibility of the days one works, the variety of placements and the feeling that everything is taken care of for you. I would recommend working for Autotech Recruit.
