CASE STUDY: Gowrings Versa Mobility

  • May 06, 2022

Gowrings Versa Mobility is a vehicle amendment company that specialises in wheelchair accessible vehicles.

The company adapts, sells, rents and services new and used wheelchair accessible vehicles from its premises in Thatcham, Berkshire and West Yorkshire.

With a fifty year track record behind it, Gowrings prides itself on being the first choice supplier of quality, trusted and innovative wheelchair-accessible vehicles.

The Challenge

Gowrings were struggling to find the right candidates for an urgent production operative vacancy, despite having run multiple posts on job boards and advertising on a large banner outside the business.

Priority Appointment’s Industrial & Technical Manager, Luke Arnott, contacted Gowring’s operations manager, Jerry Kemble-Young, and visited him at their premises.

The Solution

Once Luke had taken a brief and fully understood what they were looking for, the Priority Appointments team were soon able to find candidates with relevant experience. One ideal candidate was then quickly offered the job.

Jerry Kemble-Young, Operations Manager, Gowrings Versa Mobility said, “As a company with a good local reputation, we thought that finding new production staff would be easy. However, we were mistaken.

"Luke Arnott visited our premises in Thatcham having seen the banner outside and we explained what type of person we needed to find and what skills they should have.

"After we’d been looking for months, Luke and the team at Priority were able to find someone who has fitted in really well with everyone.

"We would certainly consider using their services again the next time we recruit.”
