Automotive Engineering Recruitment
Despite the media headlines surrounding some of the global motoring brands, the automotive sector as a whole has proved remarkably resilient in recent years, outpacing many other industries across the UK. With a total trade output in excess of £100 billion per year for the last three years, the automotive sector is also the UK’s biggest exporter of goods by far. Whilst Brexit will undoubtedly present many challenges in the coming period, there are still plenty of reasons to remain positive about the outlook for the automotive sector, and investment continues across the board, as firms look to position themselves well for a period of incredible technological change and commercial opportunity.
Environmental targets and consumer demand are fuelling a broad push to cleaner, more sustainable technologies within the automotive industry. Electric and hybrid vehicles are, of course, beginning to reach critical mass, and this area will continue to grow as we approach the UK deadline of 2030 for the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles. Autonomous vehicles are another key area that will see sustained and impressive growth in the coming years. All of this will drive production of intelligent components, long range batteries and safety-related systems, for example.
It’s clear that the future is looking extremely strong for the automotive sector, and recruitment of top-quality candidates will remain a priority for firms of all sizes. Whether you are looking to recruit for roles in body-in-white, powertrain, connected technology or interior trim/exterior trim, Cartisian can help. We can select candidates for permanent or contract roles, at executive or production floor level, and across the full range of automotive disciplines, including design, software development, electronics, MP&L, plant operations, production management and sales and account management.
