Are you looking for a challenge?
Do you have an amazing ‘can do’ attitude?
Are you tidy, smart, well organised and pay attention to detail?
Good at maintenance, DIY or mechanically minded?

If you have answered yes, you could be just the person we are looking for!

We are an expanding NCC AWS Approved workshop looking for an individual to support our existing team. Training will be given to support learning and development.

We are a small but mighty team of valued employees, working together to meet the customer’s caravan, motorhome, or camper van needs.
In some cases, vehicles are handmade, bespoke and worth more than a Ferrari, can you work to that standard?
We are looking for a self-motivated team player, with a positive can-do approach to life and work. This exciting opportunity will suit somebody with an interest in vehicles, who enjoys the challenge of working outside the norm. Customer interaction forms part of the role, therefore presentation and quality customer communication are essential. We are working towards a paperless environment, which means you will need to be computer literate and comfortable reporting observations through text and photos. A successful candidate will be able to use their own initiative, take pride in their work, welcome a varied workload and work within timescales. Ability to adapt to the company’s needs in the way we deliver our service, be comfortable with change, and an ability to prioritise tasks are key attributes we seek.
