Ben to help support jobseekers during National Careers Week

Ben is promoting National Careers Week 2023 (March 6 to 11) with efforts to help support job hunters or current automotive sector employees looking to progress in their career.

The automotive charity’s support services team can provide one-to-one support for those looking for work, information, and guidance for managing money and maximising benefits.

Rachel Clift, Ben health and wellbeing directorRachel Clift, health, and wellbeing director at Ben, said: “We’re here to help and support automotive people working in the industry, including those who are looking to the future, interested in progressing their career or improving their working lives.

“We can provide information, advice and guidance for job-seeking, CV building and interview skills and be there to support people through any career-related changes.

“Work is a very important part of our lives and contributes to our overall health and wellbeing. As well as providing financial security, work provides us with social connectedness and builds confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of purpose.”

During National Careers Week 2023 Ben has been shining a spotlight on what it’s like to work in automotive by sharing real quotes from people about why they joined the industry and what they enjoy about it: 

“The industry never stands still – constant challenge, opportunity, innovation.”

“The current industry transformation is very exciting.”

“I like the variety. Every customer has different requests and problems that need to be satisfied.”

Ben also provides access to its free Life Coaching service and digital platform Silvercloud.

As the automotive sector marked International Women’s Day yesterday (March 8), National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) chief executive Sue Robinson welcomed retailer’s efforts to make the sector ‘more attractive to young women’ but said there remained “work to be done”.

As reported by AM last year, research conducted by the IMI revealed that only 19% of automotive retail employees were women, while non-automotive industries offers a far more even spread (49% men and 51% women).
