More of what you need, when you need it


The government’s vaccination programme appears to be gaining pace and that’s good news. We all need a glimmer of hope that the challenges the pandemic has thrown up could soon come to an end.

It also means we can start looking at other issues facing the industry, of which there are quite a few: the shift to electrification, skills requirements and changing vehicle ownership models to name just three. 

Keeping it digital

It’s why we’re going to make sure that we deliver the information you need so you’re ready for whatever life throws at you. IMI webinars were hugely successful in 2020 and we’re determined that’ll continue in 2021.

COVID overtook the need to talk Brexit, but it’s something we all need to be on top of, which is why we kicked off this year’s webinar events with the IMI’s Brexit Update.

It was fantastic to be joined by Sam Purvis, Managing Director at The Compass Partnership and the IMI’s very own Steve Scofield who is Head of Business Development.

We covered a lot: 

  • How the Brexit deal affects the automotive industry
  • Potential short, medium and long-term affects
  • What could this mean for international workers?
  • What companies should be thinking about for recruitment
  • Workforce planning and development
  • Does Brexit effect those who are currently looking for work?

It’s definitely worth catching up with if you have the chance.

We aren’t’ stopping there and already have a host of digital events in the pipeline. Next up is What you need to understand about the 2030 deadline on the 28th January.

More’s on the way, keep an eye on your inbox and the IMI’s social channels to find out what.

We’re adding to what we do too

Podcasting is a hugely successful medium, and can deliver even more rich, diverse and most importantly, useful content. Which is why we’ll be bringing you the first IMI podcast very soon, and kicking off with a topic that could turn the industry upside down. Stay tuned.

For now, the IMI is here to help and support you, so if you need us please get in touch. We’re available on +44 (0)1992 519025, or send emails to
