Ladies and Gents, I am looking for your points of view please, preferably the sensible kind!
Something that has come up a lot at work lately has been the subject of women in the motor trade and how few there are. I'm not referring to jobs such as receptionists, we're talking proper workshop floor staff.
For the Ladies.....
There have been lots of issues raised such as, are most women not interested in working with vehicles? Are there particular roles that are not really suited to women? And would they be put off by working in a predominantly male environment?
Is there a job you would be particular interested in doing and would there be anything that would put you off?
For the guys.....
How do you feel about women in the trade? Would you have as much confidence in a female mechanic/sprayer/MOT tester as you would a male? Do you feel that there are roles that are not suitable for women and if you are in the motor trade, how would you feel about having female colleagues?
