Vehicle Technician (Workshop-based)
We have a vacancy for a skilled vehicle technician to work within the Service department at our Banbury branch. Qualified to NVQ Level 3 or equivalent, you will have a proven track record in diagnosing and repairing mechanical and electrical faults and be able to work under minimum supervision to the highest standards within scheduled times. As well as being fully competent in the servicing and repairing of vehicles, you will possess the technical competences in the mechanics of a vehicle with thorough knowledge of the electrical, fuel, ignition and security components and be comfortable using the latest diagnostic equipment to identify and rectify faults, quickly and accurately. You will have a positive ‘can do’ attitude and a willingness to work as part of a team with the interpersonal skills to deal with colleagues and customers. A VOSA MOT licence would be advantageous.
Light Recovery Operative
If a breakdown is serious enough to need recovery, we can safely assume the people involved aren’t having the best of days. Which is why, as one of our Recovery Operatives, you’re doing a whole lot more than recovering a vehicle on the back of a lorry. You’ll interact with people, reassure them, swiftly and safely get them to their destination, and generally ensure that they enjoy the very best customer experience they can under the circumstances. Whatever your background, we seek reliable, presentable, individuals with a flexible approach to work and a passion for driving. Ideally you’ll hold a HGV Class 2 licence, although we will consider 7.5t only entitlement, but more important than this are your customer service skills to deal with people in stressful situations able to turn their negative experience into a positive one. Mechanical knowledge is also an advantage but not essential.
Previous experience in vehicle recovery, whilst desirable, again is not essential as full in-house training to IVR standards is provided.
We can also offer the right candidate the opportunity of further career development as we look to grow our commercial recovery team.
Commercial (Heavy) Recovery Operative
We are seeking a reliable individual with a flexible approach to work and a passion for trucks to join our commercial recovery team. Duties include lifting and towing LGV’s, buses and coaches safely and efficiently following breakdown or accident to potentially any UK destination. You’ll hold a HGV Class 1 licence and with an emphasis on “fix rather than recover” due to Customer demands, you’ll also have sound mechanical knowledge able to competently diagnose and repair, where feasible, faults at the roadside. We offer a 24/365 service and you will be required to work alternate weekday evenings and every other weekend on an ‘on-call’ basis. The work is varied and often challenging. You will need to be able to work on your own initiative and well under pressure with a calm, methodical and safe approach.
Previous experience in vehicle recovery, whilst desirable, is not essential as full in-house training to IVR standards is provided.
