The Recruiter asks Jonathan Lee Recrutiment to weigh in...

Posted by: Tom Webb-Skinner 21 May 14 - 12:35PM  | Automotive



The Recruiter ran an article just recently asking 'Can vehicles of the future lead to jobs of the future?' The article was about a £130m government investment initiative to be made in 'vehicles of the future'. Mark Bignell, Managing Consultant of Automotive here at Jonathan Lee Recruitment was asked for his opinion.

Mark said: “This initiative is excellent news and I particularly welcome the inclusion of smaller British innovation businesses. However, it intensifies the need to solve the rising issue of skills shortage in the UK that is already causing considerable concern in the automotive industry: our clients are finding that there aren’t enough highly-qualified engineers to satisfy current demand and this investment will require a further increase in the supply of skilled engineers. “Initiatives such as this, while helping to retain the UK’s technical lead, will inevitably increase the gap between demand and supply of the best technical people.”

What do you think? Let us know.
