Position Overview

We are looking to recruit an experienced HGV Mechanic to join our growing company, working alongside the existing workforce in servicing, maintaining and repairing a mixed fleet of modern vehicles of various sizes.

The Role and Person

The successful applicant will be capable of working alone as well as part of a team, and be diligent and methodical in their working practices.  Use of computer technology as a diagnostic tool is essential as well as the ability to demonstrate experience of finding and repairing faults manually.  Ideally, you will have experience working on a range of different makes of vehicle but candidates trained in only one type will still be considered.  You will also be required to complete all relevant paperwork as part of the servicing and inspection routines.

A current car driving licence is essential as you will be required to provide roadside assistance to vehicle breakdowns and punctures using company vehicles.  An HGV licence would be beneficial but not essential as training will be provided if deemed necessary for the future role.

We operate a two shift system:          06:00 – 15:30  Monday to Friday

                                                           12:00 – 21:30  Monday to Friday

With Saturdays worked                      06:00 to 12:00 on backshift week only.

Applicants should send a covering letter, together with CV, via this portal. Please ensure your CV contains two referees, one of which will be contacted with your agreement, during the selection process.

We value people who take the company personally – being a part of Remondis in the north east, means being part of the global Remondis group with all the opportunities that brings – a place where employees want to build their futures.
