Comma shares inspirational stories from women throughout March

By autotech-nic on March 8, 2024

Comma is running a campaign throughout March, as part of International Women’s Day celebrations on 8 March, to share stories of women who love being part of the UK automotive industry.

The women share how they got their first start in automotive, what they most enjoy about their job and the advice they would give to someone considering a career in the industry.

Becky Tomkins is the first to share her experiences, who works at RP Motors in Tewkesbury after trading in her job in education for a new career at the independent garage.

Becky said: “Even though the career path was completely different, I could relate my learnt skills of good communication, customer service, organisation, approachability, problem solving and attention-to-detail to the job. I love working as part of a small, strong team who are customer focused. I get pride from our satisfied customers and the feedback that our team receives.”

A spokesperson from Comma’s marketing team, added: “International Women’s Day is about recognising the achievements of women around the world, and we wanted to help celebrate the skill, innovation, and dedication of those who enjoy working in, and helping to power, the UK automotive industry.”

Comma is encouraging garages and workshops to get involved and highlight others like Becky. Visit Comma Oil on social media to find out more.
