First of its kind collaboration is helping to connect automotive industry job opportunities with qualified talent from across the province.
Labour market shortages are not new in BC, and members of the New Car Dealers Association of BC (NCDA) are no exception to experiencing these hiring challenges.
Although labour challenges have been felt over the past few years, the NCDA has received extensive feedback from members about the labour challenges they have faced in the last few months. Thousands of positions need to be filled around the province and finding qualified local talent is one of the top priorities for our members. The NCDA has engaged with various provincial government agencies to try and find solutions for these workforce challenges, and we are pleased to announce a collaboration with WorkBC.
“The NCDA has been working with WorkBC to develop a streamlined way to promote automotive industry job opportunities through WorkBC Employment Services Centres in an effort to find qualified talent,” said Blair Qualey, NCDA president and CEO.
WorkBC is the largest employment-services network in BC with 102 locations throughout the province. WorkBC Centres serve the needs of both job seekers and employers at a local level. WorkBC Centres help employers: find qualified job seekers with a diverse range of skills and experience; expand recruitment efforts with local assistance and provincial connections; learn about available wage subsidies; participate in virtual recruitment activities and job fairs; and, access devices and technology for people with disabilities. To support members with their hiring solutions, NCDA has created a template to gather important details about member job openings in a quick and effective way. This information will be shared with local WorkBC Centres.
If you have job openings you are looking to fill at your dealership, please contact the NCDA office here.
WorkBC works with employers to help them find and retain the right talent to grow their business. WorkBC also helps job seekers find jobs, explore career options, and improve their skills. WorkBC offers many programs and services, including support for persons with disabilities.
