The Weekly Roundup

Are you sitting comfortably? That’s when you might start to feel sleepy and accidents can occur.

According to recruitment firm Jobco-op Automotive, the recovery of the economy is seeing a skills shortage in key motor trade roles such as technicians, MoT testers and general managers. Earlier this year Reed Specialist Recruitment carried out a survey into salaries. It found that there was a shift in the market due to the recovering economy but it warned that employers were not investing in training their staff, which would have an impact on the overall satisfaction rating for their workforce.
