Full job description

Opportunity

We're looking for a qualified mechanic to join our specialist VAG team. You will be working exclusively on manufacturers Volkswagen, Audi, Seat & Skoda, using type approved and genuine parts, working in a well-established recently refurbished garage with a friendly team.

The Offer

  • Competitive salary and benefits.
  • Contracted hours 8am-5pm, Monday to Friday. We open one Saturday morning each month which is paid overtime.
  • We offer additional earning potential through overtime should that be of interest. Any extra hours worked can be taken as paid overtime or can be used as time off. (Useful to avoid using up holidays if you need a couple of hours off during a workday.)
  • We offer 23 days holiday excluding bank holidays (which we are always closed for). We close over Christmas and New Year.
  • Technicians are rewarded with a bonus every quarter, this is based on measurements of safety, quality, and delivery. Meaning positive customer feedback and good housekeeping are valued just as much as hitting sales targets.
  • You will have access to any training that interests you
  • We offer a collaborative approach to booking work in (our mechanics have input into what jobs they undertake)
  • Unlimited tea and biscuits

About Us

As an independent Volkswagen specialist, we’ve spent over 40 years building a first-class reputation, developing specific brand knowledge, and creating an incredibly loyal customer base.

Investment over recent years has seen our business grow. We completed the installation of an MOT bay in January 2023, we installed 2 new ramps in our main workshop in June 2024, we have the latest diagnostic equipment, we regularly upgrade our tools for specific jobs to ensure our technicians have what they need, and we are proud to have one of the cleanest workshops in the Northeast.

Our vehicle technicians play a vital role within our service team, having direct contact with customers, always being honest and approachable, supporting our ethos of transparency and always doing what’s right for the customer. It allows us to successfully stand out from our competitors, and the industry in general.

Candidate

  • The ideal candidate will be experienced in all aspects of vehicle repair and maintenance from basic servicing to timing belt and clutch replacements, not essentially VAG related.
  • You will be able to diagnose major and minor mechanical faults accurately and carry out repairs to a high standard within manufacturers specified repair times.
  • You should be comfortable using diagnostic equipment to reset service lights, identify faults and be able to carry out basic electrical repairs.
  • You will have a proactive and an enthusiastic approach, be self-motivated with the ability to work as part of a team or independently with minimal supervision.
  • You will be able to complete all documentation to the required standard, maintain equipment and keep your tools and work area clean and tidy.
  • You will have strong communication skills and good attention to detail. A full clean driving license is essential.
  • You will be an MOT tester, or be interested in becoming one.
  • Above all, you’ll want to be part of a capable, motivated team who feel the same way. We may be a small garage, but we’re a great one!

All interviews will be informal. To apply or for further information please contact Sarah on 01670 353131 or email sarah.leightley@volkscentre.com
