Supplying to the likes of Coca Cola, GSK, Carlsberg and Reckitt Benckiser, this multi-million-pound company have experienced two back to back decades of continued growth.

Must be apprentice trained (either electrical or mechanical)
Must have excellent customer service skills.
Must be willing to stay away from Monday to Friday.

Salary £38,000 + overtime (OTE = £50k upwards).
Company car (VW Passat CC).
Fully expensed.
Mobile Phone.
Diagnostic equipment.
Life assurance and pension.
