Recently Drive My Career, NFDA’s employment initiative, and Group 1 Automotive attended the London Tottenham Job Fair held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The event provided a unique opportunity to engage with young job seekers and raise awareness of the opportunities available in the automotive sector.
The NFDA team, accompanied by Martin Black, Recruitment and Attraction Manager at Group 1 Automotive, were pleased to witness the enthusiasm shown by the high school and university students who visited the stand. Throughout the day, the team actively engaged with young people and their families, providing valuable guidance, and answering questions about working in automotive retail. They helped identify the skills and interests of job seekers and showed how these align with the various roles available in the automotive sector. Furthermore, the team directed the job seekers to Drive My Career’s interactive map, which features members’ latest vacancies, enabling them to explore potential career opportunities.
The day provided the perfect opportunity to expand the Drive My Career mailing list significantly. Numerous attendees subscribed and will now receive DMC’s monthly newsletter, featuring members’ latest vacancies, career guidance, and other important information about starting a career in automotive.
Sue Robinson, NFDA and Drive My Career Chief Executive, said:
“We were very impressed by the level of enthusiasm displayed by the attendees at the London Tottenham Job Fair. The event allowed us to showcase the wide range of career opportunities the retails side of the automotive industry offers and to interact with young talent who could change the future of the industry.”
“Looking forward, Drive My Career is committed to continuing its partnership with members and participating in more career fairs or similar events. By engaging directly with young job seekers, we aim to dispel misconceptions about the automotive industry and showcase the wide range of fulfilling careers it offers.”
“Additionally, we are excited to announce that we will once again be returning to the British Motor Show, taking place from 17 to 20 August. At the event, we will engage with young motoring enthusiasts, discussing the rewarding career paths within the automotive industry and showcasing our members as viable options for their professional growth.”
