New job opportunities coming to Gloucester thanks to local business

A local automotive business has launched a recruitment drive creating new job opportunities in the area, as it continues to expand its operations.

SYNETIQ, based on Empire Way in Gloucester, is the UK's biggest vehicle dismantling and recycling company. Named as one of Business Insider's 50 Most Exciting Companies in 2020, it is scaling up to meet increasing demand from its customers.

SYNETIQ is looking for vehicle dismantlers, as it expands its 500-strong team of staff. Anyone with experience of working with cars and tools, either as a hobby or through the mechanical or vehicle repair industry, would be perfectly suited to the job.

The vehicle dismantling role involves the removal of parts, quality checks and assessment, plus other warehouse and yard duties. Having your own set of tools is an advantage, although SYNETIQ will provide them if necessary.

The business also runs an apprenticeship scheme and is keen to hear from school and college leavers, as it develops the next generation of the vehicle salvage and recycling industry.

Natalie Buckley, head of HR at SYNETIQ, said: "We're proud to be expanding and investing in our team, at a time when many businesses are facing uncertainty. Our new colleagues will be a valuable part of our journey, and I encourage anyone who'd like to hear more to get in touch with us."

On-the-job training is provided by SYNETIQ's experienced team, along with discounts on vehicles and parts, plus other perks including a cycle-to-work scheme.

SYNETIQ processes over 50,000 salvage and end-of-life vehicles each year, supplying vehicle parts to a wide range of customers - including insurance companies, bodyshops and the public.
