The NBRA RepairJobs platform is designed to help those in our industry who have been adversely impacted by Covid-19 and find themselves currently unemployed.
The impact of Covid-19 on repair volumes has meant that we have seen a huge increase in the number of highly skilled and experienced people being made redundant. This situation is likely to be further impacted when the furlough scheme ends in October.
Before Covid-19 hit we had a skills crisis on our hands, and unless the industry acts quickly a sizeable pool of very talented individuals will leave the industry – maybe for good. If ‘normal’ levels of repair volume return in 6 or 12 months’ time, we are going to have a very different crisis on our hands, with a significantly reduced workforce.
We are calling for the industry to work together to retain as much of the talent within our industry, before it is too late.
