BEN adds online recruitment service

BEN has launched a new recruitment website designed to give automotive recruiters a niche job board exclusively for the industry.

With more than 1,300 jobs already listed, the site is part of BEN’s ongoing strategy to be an integral part of the automotive sector and ensure its future success.

The industry charity is able to promote all types of vacancies, both apprenticeships and mainstream roles, to encourage more people to join and remain within the automotive sector. The site is also designed to help industry partners including direct recruiters, recruitment consultants, colleges and training providers to recruit talented candidates.

Rates for one-off listings start at £59 for 30 days and only £300 per month for unlimited posting.

The site will also feature opinion pieces from industry leaders as well as tips and ideas to help recruiters and candidates make the most of their job search experience.

Jools Tait, business development director, said, ‘We are very pleased to have launched UKAutomotive.jobs which we believe will become an invaluable recruitment tool for the industry. A healthy, motivated and skilled workforce is essential to the future of the industry and by using UKAutomotive.jobs you will be helping us support colleagues across the UK, with every penny of profit made donated directly to BEN.

‘We have big plans for UKAutomotive.jobs and, we believe that, with our unique relationships and longstanding commitment to supporting the industry, we are well placed to bring together the best recruiters and candidates on a simple, user-friendly online platform. We hope you will see the benefit of using the website for all of your recruitment or job hunting needs.’

Dan Unstead, director at Perfect Placement, the first company to list current vacancies on the site, said, ‘We believe that UKAutomotive.jobs is a great new initiative for the automotive industry and we’re pleased to have been the first company to support it. We’re looking forward to fully utilising the site to better engage with the industry’s talent. I’m sure it will be a great way to build relationships with the automotive candidates of the future.’
