PSA Retail Ramps up Its Employment Strategy

RUEIL-MALMAISON, France--()--Regulatory News:

Groupe PSA (Paris:UG):

In 2018, PSA Retail planned to hire 700 employees in France on permanent contracts to meet its growth objectives and ambitious financial results targets. Halfway through the year, nearly 400 people have already been hired across the different job families. In a sector where the employment market is tight (automotive distribution), PSA Retail is ramping up its search for the best employees.

  • Collaboration with French start-up Flatchr to optimise recruitment campaigns
  • Videos released to illustrate the different types of jobs that need to be filled

Acquiring the best skills: a strategic objective to support operational performance

PSA Retail intends to be the benchmark for service quality in the field of automotive distribution and its different businesses: new vehicles, second-hand vehicles, after­sales service, spare parts distribution and rental services. With 700 new hires planned for France in 2018, a total of 400 people have already been hired at the mid-point of the year.

To meet its automotive distribution hiring needs, PSA Retail is mainly looking for people to fill after-sales advisor positions, on an equal opportunity basis. Future employees must be passionate about cars, with skills such as a customer-focused approach, versatility, adaptability, team spirit and a proven taste for organising and monitoring records. The ability to use digital tools is also an asset.

Joining PSA Retail means joining a dynamic and growing automotive distribution group. Career development is also possible in service management and sales outlet positions, with potential gateways into other jobs at Groupe PSA and its brands.

Improving recruitment campaign efficiency: a partnership with French start-up Flatchr

By choosing to collaborate with Flatchr, PSA Retail is supported by a platform which enables it to:

  • Create job advertisements and circulate them on multiple specialised sites (Indeed, APEC, Pôle Emploi, Jobs Etudiants, le Bon Coin, etc.)
  • Manage all CVs in a single place
