What is There's More to Motor?

This is the most exciting time to work in the automotive industry in a century due to the adoption of electrification and autonomous technologies. Yet there are many misconceptions about the sector which have contributed to a shortfall in job opportunities and record high vacancies, with 26,000 roles unfilled.

However, things are moving. Our There's More to Motor campaign aims to:

  • Challenge the misconceptions of the automotive industry
  • Champion the industry and drive recruitment and change
  • Start plugging vacancies and skills gaps.

We can’t do it alone, though. We need you to support our campaign by sharing your voice to provide an honest picture of the industry, experiences, and job vacancies and help shape its future and encourage others to do the same. If you're interested in joining us on this journey, scroll down to complete the form.

Take a look at our 'There's More to Motor' website to see the campaign in action. Whether you're an individual or a business, we'd love for you to support our campaign by promoting it on social media, through emails and on your website. Download our toolkit and help us change the perception of the automotive sector.
