We are seeking candidates that always seek to provide great customer service in a sometimes challenging environment, people that go 'above and beyond' to offer our customers a solution that really fits their needs.
Technical skills are important too and we seek candidates with a minimum of three years experience in a vehicle based industry. We don't like to exclude anyone so if you're good at fixing cars but just don't have the paperwork we still want to hear from you. We offer full training and all of our technicians will reach the Automotive Technical Accreditation standard.
You will need to have held a full driving licence for a minimum of three years and for those who need it we will provide training to upgrade your licence to tow trailers.
All candidates are subject to CRB checks.
This is a home based role giving the added advantage of not having to drive to a from work everyday. You will work from a dedicated service van fully equipped with specialist tools and parts to repair or recover vehicles.
At the roadside you will be expected to diagnose faults and carry out repairs that are feasible such as batteries,wheel changes, drive belts, alternators and ignition parts. For faults that need workshop attention cars are recovered into our local service centres.
We attend breakdowns in all weathers so you need to be prepared to work outside and sometimes in difficult conditions to rescue our customers.
Roadside Technicians work on a six days 'on' three days 'off' rota to a standard 47 hour week which includes weekends and evenings at times.
You will be offered a competitive salary package with a high basic wage coupled with a productivity and customer feedback bonus that means in excess of £30,000 is achievable.
