LV= partners with AutoRaise

AutoRaise has formally named LV= as a Platinum Partner to the charity.

‘This is a really exciting step forward for the AutoRaise charity,’ said Bob Linwood, AutoRaise CEO. ‘This is an open declaration by one of the vehicle repair industry’s leading work providers that they recognise there is a skills shortage and that something needs to be done now. I’m incredibly proud that we have cemented such a significant partnership.’

Samantha Preece, head of corporate responsibility at LV=, said, ‘The work that AutoRaise does in developing skilled talent will help ensure we can continue to meet our customers’ repair needs, now and into the future. As the UK’s third largest car insurance provider, we’re delighted to be supporting this charity.’

Bob continued, ‘We shall be working with LV= to engage with their approved repairers and to develop new channels and initiatives to help each individual Repairer create their own strategy to fill their talent pipeline and build a sustainable workforce for their business. Our relationship with LV= is multi-faceted; we are working with their network repair management, corporate responsibility and sponsorship and events teams which has created a robust platform to deliver support on all levels. I am so excited to have this opportunity of working with so many professional people to help impact our growth and development.’

The AutoRaise charity was formally launched at their R(E)volution event at The Tower of London on 2 December. It has created two new web portals, autoraise.co.uk and careers.autoraise.co.uk to engage with the industry and young people respectively.
