Automotive sector bucks skills shortage trend

The automotive industry is not expected to have a large skills gap over the next 15 years, according to a new report called Rare Species by vocational training body, City & Guilds.

The report predicts that the automotive sector will face less difficulty than construction, care worker recruiters and several other skills areas.

In the league table of hard-to-fill positions in 2010, mechanics are put in 11th place.

By 2020, the report suggests they will have dropped to 17th place, while jobs for chartered mechanical engineers will by then be the 20th most difficult to recruit for. In 2015, however, mechanics don’t feature in the report’s top twenty hard-to-fill positions at all.

The full report can be downloaded from the City & Guilds website.
