Description

Vehicle Mechanic

Hours of Work: 06:00 - 15:00 and 13:00 - 21:00 (Alternating weekly shifts)

How do you keep a business on the move when it delivers almost anything, anywhere? As one of our vehicle mechanics, you’ll have all the answers. When you stop and consider the size and diversity of our fleet, you’ll need plenty of them too. Some you’ll have already. Others you’ll discover as you go. Either way, there’ll be lots to keep you busy. From light vans right up to tractor trailer units, if it’s on wheels, you’ll keep it on the road.

Whether you’re organising MOT inspections or responding to breakdowns; actioning work form vehicle reports or performing maintenance, speed is critical. Because time is money. So as well as knowing your way around many types of transport, you’ll also be commercially aware and highly organised.

What you’ll get:

  • We’ll start you on at least £27,560 but will pay up to £35,090 depending on experience
  • Shift premiums if appropriate and a generous tool allowance
  • Company pension, holiday pay, discounts at major retailers (e.g. Apple, cinemas) and attractions (e.g. Alton Towers, The London Eye) and many more
  • Full industry leading training 
  • Our ‘promotion from within policy’ means you can go as far as your talent will take you

What you’ll do:

  • A variety of repairs and maintenance work on a large fleet
  • Carry out regular maintenance schedules, complete online records and stock control
  • Work as a team to achieve reliability and maintenance targets

What you’ll need:

  • City and Guilds or equivalent qualification in vehicle mechanics
  • Ideally, experience of working with commercial vehicles including HGVs
  • Initiative, planning skills and flexible, enthusiastic approach
  • A C1, 7.5tonne license would be an advantage but is not essential
  • Full UK driving license held for at least two years
