Attracting talent
Attracting talent


AutoRaise operates a number of different channels to expose the Vehicle Repair industry to young people and motivate them to consider it an attractive career destination, interfacing with agencies, schools, charities, government and youth organisations.

We pro-actively foster engagement through general marketing, face-to-face presentations to key channels and our hands-on, “try it for yourself” Industry Showcase Events. This unique level of interaction with young people and their parents / teachers ensures high success rates.


AutoRaise representatives visit schools and colleges to present our offering to both the administrators and the young people we want to attract. We aim to greatly increase the amount of Training Providers offering Vehicle Repair Apprenticeships throughout the UK and to introduce our industry to as much potential future talent as possible. We particularly want to promote our AutoRaise Cadet initiative in schools to hook 13-15 year olds into relationships with local vehicle repairers at this crucial stage in their career decision making.


CTP Future Horizons are affiliated to the Ministry of Defence as a channel to repatriate young service men and women into civilian careers. Unfortunately, many young people enter into the services straight from school then realise it is not for them. Once a candidate has elected to leave the armed forces, CTP will attempt to marry them with an Apprenticeship and the Vehicle Repair industry has been promoted by AutoRaise as a viable and exciting career opportunity. CTP Future Horizons have already provided a number of candidates to AutoRaise in areas including South Wales, Birmingham, Derby and Sheffield, and we look forward to welcoming many more new recruits from this source.

AutoRaise have partnered with Cadet Apprenticeship CIC. Launched in 2017, Cadet Apprenticeship matches Cadets wanting to become Apprentices with Employers seeking high quality young people with the skills and attributes to make excellent employees. The service is free to Cadets with a simple pricing structure for Employers. Any profits will be used to help more Cadets into Apprenticeships.


AutoRaise work with Repairers to showcase their business and the industry in general as rewarding career destination for young people. They have developed a number of channels to fill the talent pipeline and our partnership with Cadet Apprenticeship CIC will further those efforts by creating a talent pool for employers to select from and develop ongoing opportunities for us both.
