LEXINGTON, Ky. — Valvoline Inc. announced the launch of Auto Career Accelerator, an online recruiting platform designed to connect thousands of emerging professionals to open positions in both the automotive services and heavy-duty industries.

Available positions will be posted exclusively from within Valvoline’s Lubricant Customer network, which includes tire shops, car dealerships, quick lube centers, and heavy-duty fleets.

“ACA is similar to other leading job boards in connecting job hopefuls with potential employers, however, our network is industry-specific in nature and contains a robust talent assessment,” said Jamal Muashsher, vice president of marketing and customer experience. “It is our intention to pair the best and brightest with available positions throughout our extensive Valvoline network, closing what we see as an auto industry employment gap.”

Initial posted ACA positions will include entry- and mid-level technicians, management, sales, and service, with heavy-duty industry positions to come.

Citing U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics showing an estimated 76,000 mechanics are needed over the next decade to meet the needs of the automotive industry, “The Auto Career Accelerator was then born to unite student supply and industry demand,” added Muashsher.
