Helping to spread the word about how progressive an industry automotive really is, we've created a new initiative called "There's More to Motor."

The aim is to paint an honest picture of the automotive workplace, and we’re inviting members to share their experiences and any career vacancies. Wanting to generate momentum, There's More to Motor will look to educate our audience on the wide variety of roles, pathways into the industry and how skills can be transferrable.

Charlie's story

Charlie Taff-Lavill

As a late entrant into the automotive industry (Light Vehicle Technology), Charlie exemplified the sector's ability to cater to a wide range of skills and backgrounds, and support them to pursue a rewarding and sustainable career path. Despite always having had a hand in the industry and helping out with friends and family cars, Charlie previously trained as a firefighter. However when circumstances required him to, Charlie made the decision to prioritise his young family.
