M4 Specialist have built a strong reputation within the Automotive industry

As one of our founding sectors, M4 Specialist have built a strong reputation within the Automotive industry and as such have built an extensive network of clients and candidates within the retail and commercial vehicle markets.

Despite being one of the most exciting and dynamic sectors to work in, the UK’s Automotive Industry has experienced a huge skills gap over recent years, particularly within the Technical and Engineering sectors. Driven by a combination of factors; most notably the changing face of technology throughout the industry and the wide scale investment into ultra-low emission and electric vehicles, has created a demand for engineering skills outside of the traditional automotive engineer’s vocation.

Our Automotive team are adept at placing those ‘hard to fill’ vacancies, offering a variety of recruitment and selection options based on the individual needs of our Clients. With skills in demand and an already limited talent pool to select from, it is more important than ever for organisations to choose a recruitment partner that takes the time to truly understand their culture and aspirations of the business in order to attract the right calibre of staff to meet their needs.

At M4 Specialist, our aim is to become an extension of our Clients, ensuring that the candidate’s journey from prospect to hire is both positive and highly informed – to ensure it’s not only the right match for the Role but for the Organisational culture too.

Recruitment & Selection Options Tailored to support your needs

Traditional Search & Selection

Our traditional recruitment option is fully tailored to suit each Clients individual needs. In our experience, one size most certainly doesn’t fit all, so our approach to identifying potential candidates will depend entirely on the role criteria and our extensive knowledge & experience of the local market. Sourcing candidates from a variety of available media our specialist teams will interview and wherever possible meet with prospective candidates, providing a selective short list of candidate who ‘fit the brief’ in both skill and cultural fit.
