Auto Electric Mechanic - South UK

We are currently recruiting for a dedicated and experienced field-based service engineer who is experienced in vehicle electrics and mechanics. Due to the expansion of our clients customer base and range of solutions, they would like to grow their team of engineers. The successful candidate will be a keen problem-solver, good communicator and strives to deliver to first-class standards.

The position is to work for a company who provide vehicle weighing solutions to their customers and as such you will be trained how to install, service, calibrate and repair onboard weighing systems.
