More professionals are looking to get back to work after taking time out for personal and business reasons

Automotive professionals are keen to get back to work following career breaks, a new survey has found.

Many workers admitted that they would be more inclined to join a company if it offered a ‘returnship’ programme, allowing them to return to work following a career break.

The survey of 1,200 professionals found that two-thirds of those in the automotive sector felt that not enough was being done to help people come back to the workplace.

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, the company behind the survey, said: “With one in four automotive professionals admitting to taking a career break, it’s clear that this is not uncommon, especially amongst those who take time out to travel.

“With this in mind, more needs to be done to help these professionals return to work after their break. That said, it’s great to see that returnships are on the rise, and with the majority saying they’d be more inclined to work for a company which offers them, it’s obvious that this is something workers appreciate.”

However, the survey also found that one in four professionals in the automotive sector have taken a break at some point, with 55.6 per cent citing travel as the key reason for the period away.

As well as this, 22.2 per cent had left work to care for a family member, while 20.1 per cent had done so to set up their own business.
