IMI at the British Motor Show

Published:  19 August, 2021

The IMI is taking a lead role at the 2021 British Motor, through its sponsorship of the IMI Technology Theatre, as well as supporting the Automotive Careers Expo.  Key features on the IMI stand will include, the IMI Careers Hub, the IMI Professional Register, IMI TechSafe, VOCANTO e-learning and the Lucas Nuelle Car-Train training unit.

As Steve Nash, CEO of the IMI observed, the world of motoring is changing beyond recognition: “226 job roles, a premium on earning potential for those with up to date qualifications and some of the most exciting technological advances for 100 years – automotive offers a wealth of opportunities whether you’re already in the sector; looking to make a career change or just starting out in the jobs market. Crucially, we’re a sector that is desperately short of people with the right skills – so the potential is immense. The IMI Careers Team will be on hand at the British Motor Show with advice and tips to help anyone interested in furthering their career.

“The IMI team will also be able to help motorists understand why it is vital they choose a technician who has the right, up to date, qualifications to work on their vehicle.  Some may be surprised to learn that, unlike a number of other professions, there is no licence to practice in automotive. The IMI Professional Register addresses that gap by providing motorists with a directory of technicians who have made a commitment to IMI professional standards. These include having the core skills for the job; continuous professional development to stay up to date with automotive advances and behaving professionally and ethically.”

Steve added: “Whatever brings people to the British Motor Show, we hope they will take the time to visit the IMI stand and find out the role we are playing in keeping Britain motoring.”
