Time ticking down for nominations

Rising stars wishing to be considered for this year’s Autocar Great British Women in the Car Industry shortlist must be nominated by 3 April.

Run by Autocar, in association with the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and backed by Direct Line Group, Ford and Jaguar Land Rover, the aim of the event is to identify and promote the sector’s most promising female rising stars and highlight the career opportunities within the industry.

The top 100 rising stars will be selected from the following areas of the car industry: vehicle development, manufacturing, purchasing, retail, marketing, communications, apprentices, motorsport, design, and executive. A winner will be selected from each industry sector, with an overall winner then chosen from that shortlist.

Candidates must be nominated by friends, colleagues or their employer. There is no age limit.

In the first instance, the candidate’s name and CV, along with a short description of their achievements to date and in particular their potential for the future, should be sent to jim.holder@haymarket.com. There is no limit on the number of nominations.

Those 100 finalists will be announced on 21 June at a day-long event at Twickenham Stadium, with panel debates, discussions and work groups taking place for winners and invited guests.
