The impact of Covid-19 on employment in the automotive job market has already been remarkable with multiple reports of job losses throughout the industry.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) warned the government in June that one in six jobs were at risk of redundancy without help in restarting production. 

The full effects of the pandemic are yet to be seen but coupled with the uncertainty around Brexit in 2019, the long term future of the industry, and those employed within the sector, is under threat.
