Mission Motorsport

We are delighted to announce that Mission Automotive will be joining us for MACH 2020. This is a new initiative from the Mission Motorsport charity, which aims to help those leaving the armed forces in their rehabilitation and reintegration into the civilian job market. Mission Automotive is working with businesses within the automotive industry to help them match the talents and experience of service-leavers to employment opportunities in a sector that needs their skills and expertise.

“It can be difficult for service leavers to translate how their military experience allows them to fit into civilian career,” explains James Cameron, Mission Motorsport CEO in the release.  “Our service men and women are a national resource and have much to offer to society beyond their military service. By helping them and their families we boost British industry, and by association the communities in which they resettle.”

Mission Automotive will be MACH on stand 7-44, Nicola Harrison, Commercial Project Manager, spoke about why the MTA supports the charity and the importance of their presence at the exhibition.

“there is ever-increasing skills gap in the manufacturing and engineering sector but there is also a pool of talented workers who find it hard to break back into employment when they leave the services. If by supporting Mission Automotive we can help them bridge that gap then it can only be a benefit to the individuals, employers and to UK manufacturing as a whole.”
