In our Candidate FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) you will find the answers to the most common questions asked of the PG Automotive Recruitment team. If you have any specific questions that we have not answered below, contact us on cv@pgautomotive.com

  1. I have sent a copy of my CV to PG Automotive and I can see some vacancies on your website that I think I am suitable for. Why have you not called me?

    This could be for any number of reasons, sometimes clients are specific about industry sector experience, for example they might have told us that they only want to see candidates with automotive industry experience. It could also be that based on the information that we hold on you we don’t think that you would be interested for example, if you told us that you were looking for a minimum of £40K and the vacancy is paying £25,000. If in doubt then please call and we can double check. Rest assured if PG Automotive can put you forward for a position, we will do so.

  2. I have been put forward for a job vacancy by PG Automotive and want to apply for another job vacancy through PG Automotive, is this possible?

    YES, you can apply and be put forward for as many roles as we deem you suitable for. If you get an offer from more than one client the decision will be yours as to which one you accept.

  3. What are the benefits of registering with PG Automotive?

    PG Automotive is a highly reputable automotive recruitment agency with many years experience in the sectors that we cover. We have in-depth market knowledge and will therefore be aware of many vacancies that are not advertised. We also manage your application and will liaise with the client on your behalf. PG Automotive can also give CV feedback, interview advice and negotiate salaries at offer stage.

  4. Will PG Automotive send my CV to clients without contacting me?

    ABSOLUTELY NOT. We will never do this, we only present your details to a client after we have spoken to you about the vacancy, the company and received your permission to do so.

  5. I have applied for a vacancy online, does this mean that my details have been sent to the client?

    No, we screen all applications and call suitable applicants to discuss the role and make them aware who the end employer is. Your details are only sent to a client once both you and your Consultant agree to do so.

  6. I have applied for a vacancy and I have not been contacted

    We acknowledge all applications via e-mail, if we think that you are suitable for the role then we will contact you to discuss the role within 3 working days. If we have not contacted you by then it could be that we felt you were unsuitable for the role or that we have not received your CV. Please check your email to see if you have received our automated response, which confirms that we have received the CV.

If you really think that you are suitable and we have got it wrong then please give us a call and we will explain our decision, CV’s can be very ambiguous and we can make mistakes as well!

We really do want to help all of our registered candidates to get their next career move no matter what level you operate at. Due to the large numbers of applications we receive on a daily basis, we are only able to work closely with candidates that we are confident that we can source a new opportunity.

Every single CV we receive is screened by our experienced recruitment team.
