On Wednesday we launched a proper, professional CV writing service. And a busy week it has been, but highly successful.
We still have some £99 CV writing vouchers left, if you need a new CV then we will either write one from scratch for you, or help you rewrite your current one. Full details are on our www.workagain.co.uk site. If you go to this store and select the CV writing service, just put the following code in at the checkout to make sure you benefit from this special price for automotive job seekers – MTS99JUL. This offer is open to the first 50 jobseekers.
In the meantime, news this week has been dominated by Lookers ongoing problems. As many will be aware, what initially looked like a serious £4 million hole in their accounts has turned into something altogether larger. The group had already announced a number of redundancies, it is difficult to see how it can avoid further cuts, especially as it had to suspend its shares on Wednesday to protect itself from the fallout. As if times were not challenging enough in the current market.
On a positive note, however, many of our clients have been reporting a bumper June. Some have said to us it was their busiest month for a long time, and possibly their best June ever. Quite how long this buoyant feeling will last rather depends on how quickly the country emerges from lockdown. With pubs among the many businesses allowed to open this Saturday, showrooms might be a little quieter than they have been.
Lookers are certainly not alone in suffering from the current pandemic, and manufacturers such as Daimler are predicting that market contraction caused by coronavirus will probably result in a much greater restructuring than they or anybody else had already planned. Everybody, including BMW, is racing to comply with EU emission standards just as sales have fallen off a cliff, and electric seems to be the way. And even if all of that wasn’t bad enough for the traditional motor industry, Tesla has seen a surge in its shares as deliveries are well ahead of expectations. It seems that the pandemic has changed the world, and it may well have changed the minds of car buyers too.
Have a great weekend. Football, Formula One, golf are all back, it’s cricket’s turn next week!
