Increase of Females in Workshops

Research carried out by CitNOW shows that 61% (nearly two thirds) of automotive professionals have seen an increase of female personnel in workshops over the last 5 years. And, 77% of those surveyed believed the automotive technician is respected outside the industry.

CitNOW CEO, Alistair Horsburgh, said, ‘With workshop technicians becoming more diverse, bringing with them a more modern skillset, the future of the industry looks bright.’

Gavin White, managing director, Autotech Recruit, said, ‘As the workshop evolves, it is vital that vehicle technicians receive the relevant training to work with new technologies, like video, as having the experience will soon become a fundamental part of the recruitment process.’
