Industry ‘needs more women’

Vehicle Remarketing Solutions is calling for the motor industry to target the recruitment of women into the industry. The company recently advertised a senior sales position and received over 50 applications – not one of which was a woman.

Commenting on the issue Jacqui Le Put, sales and marketing director says: “The motor industry is failing to recruit and progress women in the workforce and is suffering as a result. Any industry needs a healthy balance of men and women, which creates a stronger working environment because each sex brings its own set of skills. The right man for the job may not always be a man and currently you don’t have that choice in this industry.”

Recent figures from the Equal Opportunities Commission show that there are less than 10,000 women working in the automotive industry.
