The automotive sector continues to recover with a further decline in vacancy rates, yet stays volatile, with high demand for all skilled roles in the past three months.

This is according to a new report by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI).

There is a continued cooling in job postings since the start of 2023. Despite this, the vacancy rate in the motor trades remains considerably higher — 40 percent above the average rate across all industries, which stands at 3.0.

Alongside this, the demand for skills is evolving, with an emphasis on machinery proficiency, strong work ethic, and increasingly, numerical expertise in areas like invoicing. Skills in sales are also beginning to resurge among all Technician types.

Overall, salary trends show an uptick across most roles, despite some disparities. Some roles, like vehicle body builders, are above the government median salary range, while others, like managers, lag behind. Notably, this marks the first occurrence of such a trend this year.

The IMI’s skills profiles highlight recruitment trends in key occupations in automotive retail. They provide information on job postings, top hiring companies and the skills they are looking for.
