Job Description

Today's cars and vans are miracles of modern engineering. There is more computer technology on a standard family car than there was in the first rocket to land on the Moon! So if you have a passion for vehicles, and a keen interest in modern technology, training to be an Automotive Technician could be the path to an exciting and well paid career for you.


Whether you're starting your career or changing jobs, it is important that you apply to join a company that is right for you, one that shares your values, will appreciate your work ethic and reward your achievements. It is not that different from buying a car. Get it right and you'll feel good every time you make a journey. Get it wrong and you'll never feel satisfied.
