Arnold Clark recruitment drive targets 200 technicians

Arnold Clark aims to recruit 200 additional technicians

Arnold Clark has begun a recruitment drive in a bid to add 200 technicians to its 11,000-strong workforce.

Roles in vehicle preparation and maintenance are available at a variety of locations, including Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Inverness.

The independently-owned AM100 group joins the pursuit of new technicians alongside the Volvo Car UK network, which is currently aiming to add 300 to its dealers’ workforce, as the IMI warns of a shortage of qualified staff.

Inchcape and Pendragon are among the other AM100 group's currently targeting a growth in their technicians headcount.

Jacquie Sherry, Arnold Clark group recruitment manager, said: “It’s an exciting time as Arnold Clark continues to grow its footprint and deliver new services.

“That means we need more technicians to join our dedicated team to help maintain our outstanding levels of customer satisfaction.

“In return for their skills, they’ll get to work in our leading-edge facilities and enjoy some fantastic benefits.”

Among the benefits available to Arnold Clark employees are flexible hours, private medical insurance, life assurance, a contributory pension scheme and a great range discounts on new and used cars.

There’s also scope to gain industry-recognised qualifications as Arnold Clark staff benefit from the leading-edge facilities and expert tuition at the company’s GTG Training centres.

Arnold Clark has 130 Service Centres located throughout the UK.

One million customers come through Arnold Clark workshops each year with more than 200,000 MOTs carried out, 500,000 services and repairs completed and more than 120,000 tyres fitted.

    A lot of these Dealer Groups are having trouble keeping or recruiting 'quality' technicians because they are simply not offering an hourly wage rate that is acceptable for a qualified Tradesman particularly Pendragon. An unskilled person working on a 'check out' at Marks and Spencers earns £8.50 an hour !!
