Permanent recruitment solutions company FFR Automotive has joined Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF).
FFR specialises in passenger car, commercial vehicle and refinish sectors, being a trusted recruitment partner to major aftermarket businesses including manufacturers, suppliers, motor factors and independent garages.
With more than 20 years combined experience, the FFR team prides itself on offering best in class recruitment solutions for any role within an aftermarket business, also offering free candidate training and a 12-month candidate guarantee.
Directors Gavin Collier and David Jobin, explained the reasons behind joining IAAF: “We are a specialist people business and we want to support all IAAF members with insight and expertise from our unique position, ultimately becoming a key voice on all things aftermarket recruitment related.”
“We also want to keep abreast of all of the latest developments within the industry and support initiatives that the IAAF works hard to promote, as they are key to the survival of the aftermarket as we know it.”
The pair also highlighted the ever-growing skills shortage in the industry, saying: “People are the heart of every great company – the skills shortage is a threat to many businesses. For example, the UK skills shortage has cost companies over £2 billion in increased salaries alone. More concerning still is that more than half of senior business leaders surveyed (53%) expect the situation to deteriorate over the next 12 months. This is a real issue for many aftermarket businesses or certainly will be in the future and we are in a position to help members alleviate these pressures.”
Mike Smallbone, IAAF head of membership development, said: “We welcome FFR Automotive into membership and look forward to their insight and knowledge on recruitment for businesses in the automotive aftermarket.”
