IMI rolls out employability resources

Published:  08 October, 2020

The IMI is launching a series of online resources to help those in the industry facing unemployment to be in a good position to look for a new job, under the banner of IMI Employability Week.

Taking place from Monday (12 October) and running until Friday (16 October), IMI Employability Week has one eye on the winding down of the furlough and the continuing challenges businesses face due to the need for social distancing.

From refreshing a CV and building an online profile to interview and communication techniques in the virtual world, the dedicated IMI Employability Week web page will also include helpful resource packs, how-to guide’, tips and advice, short videos, talks and presentations, and more. 

Commenting on the initiative, IMI CEO Steve Nash said: “There is no doubt that the pandemic has seriously affected the UK’s workforce in many ways. Now, with the furlough scheme coming to an end, there is a lot of employment uncertainty and for those who have been in a particular role for several years there could be considerable fear about getting back into the job market, from writing a CV and submitting impactful job applications to networking and undertaking interviews online.”

Steve added: “Some may not even consider a career change or looking beyond the specialism in which they currently work because they don’t realise they have transferable skills and knowledge. However, with the right guidance and support and, in some cases, some additional training, people will find there are genuine employment opportunities, and alternative career pathways within the automotive sector.”
