Recruitment Agency of the Year – Car Dealer Power Awards 2020

Time 4:01 pm, September 28, 2020

Without a doubt 2020 will go down in the history books for challenging times, and when times are challenging job losses are an inevitable consequence.  

With mounting numbers of jobs being axed across the industry, recruitment companies have an even more important role to play in the motor trade jobs market.

For dealers looking to hire that means agencies doing the hard work and sifting through piles of applications, while for candidates, that means matching them with a potential future employer.

Serial winner Perfect Placement has long been at the forefront of automotive recruitment and during these difficult times has been working hard to help its clients out.

‘It’s a huge honour to have won this award not only because it’s voted for by those who use our services, but more during these strange times we’re living in businesses took the time to vote for us when they are concentrating on their post-Covid recovery,’ principal recruitment consultant, Jimi Matthews told James Batchelor.

‘Winning this award in 2020 is extra special,’ he said.

‘In other years we’ve been able to point back to something in that year that was special or innovative, but for 2020 it’s going to be a year that many would like to forget. 

‘When we look back on 2020, we’ll believe we changed demonstrably with our service having to change in this new environment and we’ve seen a massive change in our clientele using our services.’

Matthews added: ‘We’re working daily with our clients to not only provide them with the service they recognise and that has made us successful, but also with new solutions to ongoing issues surrounding furlough, redundancies and socially distanced interviews.

‘Most of the interviews are taking place under some sort of Covid restrictions and it’s really about understanding their needs and getting to the winning line for everyone.’
