Either way, there’ll be lots to keep you busy. From light vans right up to tractor trailer units, if it’s on wheels, you’ll keep it on the road.

Whether you’re organising MOT inspections or responding to breakdowns; actioning work form vehicle reports or performing maintenance, speed is critical. Because time is money. So as well as knowing your way around many types of transport, you’ll also be commercially aware and highly organised.

  • City and Guilds or equivalent qualification in vehicle mechanics
  • Ideally, experience of working with commercial vehicles including HGVs
