Role Summary

Do you like repairing cars? Do you want to be rewarded for doing so? How about working in a busy workshop surrounded by like-minded people?

Panel beating and prepping cars is challenging work, but it’s much easier in the right conditions. You’ll be working at our client's state of the art preparation centre in Leighton Buzzard. They have the capability to prepare 800 cars every single week. From inspecting to preparing to imaging – everything has to run like clockwork.

As a Panel Beater or Prepper you are right at the heart of the process. Cars come in, are inspected and evaluated, before being prepared and repaired for imaging and sale. Our client needs someone to repair the bodywork on the cars so they are worthy of being sold.

Ideally you’ll have a qualification, but they’re happy if you’re qualified by experience. 

The last thing you’ll need is an eye for safety. Our client wants you to be working in a safe environment, and that requires everyone to take responsibility for a tidy and safe working environment.


As far as benefits – you’ll get a good base salary and a bonus based on performance.

You’ll also receive:

  • World class training and development
  • 18 day’s holiday (plus extra days when you work bank holidays)
  • Discounted gym membership
  • A wide range of membership and high street discounts
  • Childcare vouchers and a cycle to work scheme
  • Life assurance scheme

This role is a 4 on / 4 off shift and the salary is dependent on technical competence.
