Online employment platform anticipates growing demand within the auto industry.
Employment opportunities within dealerships will continue to grow across Canada throughout 2020, according to the online platform “Cars and Jobs” which connects job seekers to vacancies in dealerships.
According to Statistics Canada, the auto sector is also the segment of the retail sector which pays better than most, with auto industry weekly earnings averaging $1,130 nationally, compared to average weekly earnings of $610 for the retail sector at large.
Speaking at the Montréal International Auto Show, Denis Dessureault, executive vice-president of the Montreal Automobile Dealers Corporation, its Foundation, and the Montreal International Auto Show said, “Over the past few years, we have been hearing consistently from our dealers throughout Québec and Canada that they need to hire new talent in a variety of positions.
“Factor in the ongoing retirement of older workers and overall industry growth, and you have a sector that is keen to welcome new hires. We predict that 2020 will be a continuation of this trend: where workers of all skill levels are needed in dealerships throughout the country.”
