We make sure no-one is better qualified to look after our vehicles than our Vehicle Technicians. We provide extensive training to manufacturer standards and provide access to regular support and technical information in order to build and maintain a high level of technical competence for diagnosing and servicing vehicles. Within the dealership, we utilise the latest diagnostic technology, tools, and best practice processes to offer our customers the very best assistance with their service or repair, and have confidence in the diagnosis, repair, and servicing of the full range of our Ford & Kia vehicles.

The opportunity?

By conducting full examinations of vehicles (including electric vehicle health checks), you will identify non-routine defects and faults either in the workshop or during vehicle road tests, as well as undertaking the timely repair and servicing of customer vehicles in accordance with Ford & Kia technical standards.

Providing a knowledgeable, courteous, responsive, and efficient service to all colleagues and workshop customers, you will work closely with the front of house service team, ensuring they are kept informed of the progress on customer vehicles and are fully briefed on work completed, as well as discussing technical issues/works directly with customers when requested.
