Autocar Drivers of Change 2021

Autocar’s Drivers of Change initiative seeks to promote talented individuals interested in entering three exciting areas of the automotive industry: technology, digital and retail. It is being delivered in partnership with executive search specialists Ennis & Co, with the goal of energising the industry through innovative thinking. 

Each category winner will receive £5000, as well as the opportunity to attend the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) dinner, the biggest automotive industry event of the year. Mentoring opportunities with our sponsors will also form part of the prize.

Prior experience isn’t required – the range of entrants spans from those starting out in their career to those with more experience, be that within the automotive world or outside of it. The key is to have an idea that could challenge the status quo. As long as you’re aged 18 or over, age or experience is irrelevant: above all, we are looking for visionaries with brilliant ideas that can benefit this fast-paced industry, however big or small.
