BCA has become the first NAMA member to sign up to the Drive My Career initiative, which was launched by the NFDA last year.

Drive My Career is a unique, industry-first initiative launched to help automotive employers connect with young people looking to start their professional careers. It is a web-based platform which promotes exciting career opportunities available in the automotive industry, attracts young people and redirects them to automotive online career portals.

Candidates use the website where they enter their postcode and see all the automotive groups that operate in their local area. By clicking on the logo of any of the groups appearing on the finder map, they will be redirected to the career page of the selected group. There, they will be able to apply for the preferred vacancy.

It is positive to see that BCA has seen the value in Drive My Career and has signed up to help promote the career opportunities available in the automotive sector.

Despite all the different, exciting career paths the industry offers, the automotive industry can lose many talented young people due to the lack of information about the range of roles available and the potential for career development. With Drive My Career, the whole industry has come together in a unique way and one that will enable businesses to connect with the workforce of the future.

DMC welcomes BCA on board and hope to see more NAMA members joining the initiative.
