Joblift reveals that the UK automotive sector is remaining resilience despite ongoing concerns

March 15, 2019 / Manufacturing Global

The impact of Brexit is heavily impacting the UK automotive industry. In February, Honda announced its plans to close its Swindon car plant, while Nissan has revealed that it is looking at the possibility of reducing its operations in Sunderland, impacting UK employment figures.
Job search platform Joblift analyzed all 20mn online job ads from the last two years to see what was being reflected in the recruitment world for the automotive industry. With the uncertainty of Brexit and a subsequent number of job losses, the business looked to see if there was a decline in the number of jobs advertised.
Despite the vast number of future job cuts, the company has found that the UK industry has not slowed down in trying to attract talent. In the last two years, there have been 133,094 job ads posted, and average monthly inflation of 1%.
