Anne O’Shea, a qualified psychotherapist and practitioner of personality profile analysis, will head the Shropshire-based company. She says: “Our main aim is to try to help the motor trade to solve one of its longest standing problems – its attrition rate. We want to help businesses recruit and retain their staff for longer.
“We are specializing solely on the motor trade. I personally interview every candidate that applies to us, check out their references and run a personality test as standard. We also carry out DVLA checks as people often lie about the number of points they have on their licence. This gives employers peace of mind.”
The company offers flat-rate fees that are not based on a percentage of annual salary. Furthermore, it has a full money back guarantee in place should an employee leave within three months of being placed.
O’Shea says: “We’re currently in the process of looking for dealerships and groups to work with.” Being a subsidiary of Professional Inspirations, a motor trade training and consultancy company that counts Lookers among its clients, enables Search Engine to offer dealerships supplementary career development training.
“We’re confident that our combined skills and experience will create a winning recruitment service that will benefit both dealerships and job hunters alike,” says O’Shea.
