Driving up quality employment solutions - The Automotive Recruitment Alliance

Date: Thursday 14 October 2021

Autotech Group, Glen Callum Associates and KPI People, three of the UK’s top automotive recruitment specialists, have formed The Automotive Recruitment Alliance in a bid to streamline the recruitment process for the aftermarket.

Collectively, each company’s recruitment specialism covers the entire automotive aftermarket from temporary vehicle technicians and MOT testers, permanent and interim technical and commercial staff, parts and customer service operatives, sales and marketing, through to senior board positions.

With parallels in values and ethical practices, a commitment to investing in candidates and delivering high quality services, all three companies have informally recommended each other for several years to provide the aftermarket with effective recruitment solutions.

This collaboration has now been formalised through the launch of The Automotive Recruitment Alliance, which will support the future growth of the aftermarket through the placement of high quality, skilled candidates.

Offering substantial benefits to aftermarket employers, The Alliance has committed to a number of shared principles, including:

  • Delivering an ethical recruitment service to all
  • Continually investing in the latest technology and recruitment tools to help shape an enhanced recruitment strategy
  • Only recommending quality candidates who have been fully vetted
  • Providing candidates with access to relevant training and opportunities to futureproof the next generation of the aftermarket
  • Offering a transparent fee structure with no up-front costs for a consistent client experience.

Combining modern recruitment tools, including talent search platforms, video screening technology, professional profiling and practical workshop-based training and assessments, all form part of a valuable collaboration for the aftermarket sector.

Together Autotech Group, Glen Callum Associates and KPI People hold decades of experience in creating recruitment solutions for the automotive aftermarket and work as trusted partner companies.

Gavin White, CEO of Autotech Group said:

“Through the Recruitment Alliance, we are formalising our existing relationships and shared values. Due to the synergies between all three companies, we have made several referrals over the years, but this will now strengthen our collective commitment to providing excellent customer service to the industry.”

Glen Shepherd, Director of Glen Callum Associates Ltd said:

“The Recruitment Alliance is headed up by likeminded recruitment experts totally dedicated, committed and passionate about raising the hiring bar for the automotive sector.”
“Stepping out of our individual silos and working collectively with top-flight, respected, ethical automotive recruitment professionals, is a collaboration Glen Callum Associates Ltd is proud to be a part of. We look forward to joining forces with Autotech Group and KPI People in catering for the challenging, modern hiring world now facing the automotive sector.”

Andy Hill, Director of KPI People has said:

“We are very excited and proud to be part of the Automotive Recruitment Alliance. By bringing together our own agency specialisms and expertise, and combining this with a collaborative working approach, we can offer the automotive aftermarket a complete recruitment solution.”
