After announcing its prestigious return in 2020, the British Motor show says it will play host to the National Automotive Recruitment Fair on the opening day of the show, 20 August 2020.
The automotive industry faces a challenging skills shortage at a time that sees huge change in the sector.
Manufacturers and suppliers are both finding it hard to recruit the necessary skills into the industry and industry bodies such as National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA), with its Drive My Career campaign, are launching programmes to attract new talent for their members.
The British Motor Show is committed to supporting the industry and is reinforcing that point with the launch of the National Automotive Recruitment Fair, which will be held at the show on Thursday August 20th.
The Fair will see seminars and sessions from manufacturers and industry suppliers showcasing the fantastic opportunities that the industry has to offer.
The show will specifically focus on attracting young talent into the industry from schools, colleges and universities as well as promoting the industry as a forward thinking and positive place.
A specific thread is also aimed at attracting more women into the industry, supported by some of the key female figureheads from across the automotive sector.
Exhibitors at The British Motor Show will be able to participate in the event for free, which is expected to attract industry leaders, retail and franchise managers, car and van manufacturers and technology bosses through the doors of Farnborough International on the day that the show opens its doors.
