Role Summary

Do you like to get your hands dirty? Of course you do – that’s why you’re looking at this ad. Right?

I suppose the important question is: do you want to be busy? At our client's Leighton Buzzard preparation centre they are able to prepare 800 cars every single week. You’ll receive bonuses based on how much work you get through, and with a constant stream of cars coming through you’ll never be concerned about hitting those targets because there’s not enough to do.

You’ll be working on a range of cars from every manufacturer, and completing all sorts of mechanical work. You’ll be diagnosing faults then repairing them – all while working at our clients state of the art preparation centre in Leighton Buzzard. From inspecting to preparing to imaging – everything has to run like clockwork.

Ideally you’ll have a qualification, but we’re happy if you’re qualified by experience. We’ll run some technical tests just to make sure.

With your own set of tools and a valid driving license, you’ll be well equipped to find and fix any fault on any car.

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.
