Automotive Technology Recruitment Specialists

Automotive is underpinned by Technology at every level, from design, architecture and development through to testing, validation, and production. Automotive manufacturers and suppliers are deploying leading edge technology throughout their global operations to create innovative products, adding value to their brands.

In the automotive realm, a car is now a computer on wheels, with electronics representing roughly 40% of the cost of a car. The decision by Apple and Google to enter the automotive market shows that a tech company can now transform into a car company.

No Automotive player can ignore the pace at which all these technologies are moving and that’s without the need to drive their Research function to stay ahead of the product development curve. From Electric drivetrain, hybrid power plants, autonomous vehicle design, through to connectivity and infotainment; there is a hard battle taking place for talent in all of these areas.

Next Ventures has an expert team of automotive technology recruitment specialists focused specifically on Automotive, and additionally each of our five Practice teams service the sector across ERP, CRM, Cloud & Infrastructure, Data, and Development & Integration. We provide specialist automotive professionals for:

  • Permanent Services
  • Contract & Interim Services
  • Senior Appointments

What our candidates say

  • I’ve been working with Next Ventures for almost 3 years and in this period they have shown a very professional and yet agile approach. They are very well connected with the key players within the automotive industry including higher levels of executive management. Based on that ability to quickly understand the needs of their customers they provide suitable profiles within a short amount of time. I’ve found Next Ventures to be very responsive and closely following up on the topics. They’re very responsive, always to the point and clear in communication to their customers.

    Mark Baijens, Director Embedded Software ADAS

  • Next Ventures went to great lengths to make sure I was the right candidate for a sought after position, as well as making sure that the company was right for me. The recruitment turned out to be a very good fit both for me and for the recruiting company. I was also impressed by how Next Ventures and its employees showed great dedication and professionalism during but also after my successful placement.

    Petter Claesson, VoIP Technical Consultant

  • I found Next Ventures to be true professionals and one of the best recruitment consultancies I have worked with in my long career. From the outset they were very clear about the technical requirements of the role, had a detailed profile of the company they were recruiting for and certainly understood the data market well. The consultant I dealt with was especially helpful in dealing with the contract negotiations from both sides, and even had time to meet with me during the interview process and post job offer. I would certainly recommend other friends and colleagues within the industry to use Next Ventures as I know they will not be disappointed.

    Clive Richardson, SQL Server DBA

  • Working with Next Ventures has been a pleasure. The energy and commitment they showed in the first call I had with them has been maintained throughout my contract duration, in all our dealings. I hope to continue our association long in to the future.

    David Erasmus, Oracle e-Business Contractor

  • Next Ventures recruited me into Johnson & Johnson. They had a very good understanding of the role on offer, and were very efficient in sorting out queries and issues. The consultant also had a very good balance between giving people enough updates, but not calling too often. He made the recruitment experience a positive one.
