We work with OEMs, Tier 1 and 2 suppliers and we have access to an extended network of UK and overseas automotive consultants and candidates.

Technology, and external factors such as the environment and government led initiatives has led to a massive change in the demand for labour in the automotive sector. The diverse labour “mix” now required to build vehicles offers up new challenges and opportunities for clients and candidates alike.

In turn this has led to the need for a greater consultative approach to solving your recruitment problems – something that we have been advocating for many years.

We are the trusted recruitment partner of choice for those seeking a collaborative approach offering honesty and openness.

James Barwell – Automotive Consultant

07786 911071

I have over 20 years’ experience in automotive engineering having undertaken various roles in Facility, Process and Strategic Planning for both BMW UK Manufacturing and Rolls-Royce cars.

Having first-hand experience of automotive OEM and Tier One and Two suppliers, I fully understand the challenges the automotive sector faces in recruiting the best employees, to ensure production deadlines are met, and continuity of service is maintained, in this constantly evolving and changing arena.

Outside of work, I have competed in competitive forms of motorsport from the age of 11 until the current day in karts and cars and I currently race a Radical SR3 when work and family commitments allow.

“The two recruits have become a true success for the business and the team, and I would warmly recommend KSM to both candidates and clients”

Eva Nilsagård, Ex Senior Vice President Strategy & Business Development, Volvo Group Trucks Sales & Marketing EMEA

“We were thrilled when KSMs fast-track implementation program resulted in pragmatic and innovative candidate selections”

John Twitchen, Company Purchase & Facilities Manager at Renault Trucks UK Ltd
