Accident Repair Centres repair and restore damaged vehicles after an accident or crash. They can be Main Dealer run Bodyshops or independently run Accident Repair Centres. They work on a wide range of vehicle types, makes, models and manufacturers so a successful Bodyshop requires a range of skills across a variety of roles which collectively make up the team.
The workshop of an Accident Repair Centre will usually be managed by a Workshop Controller or Bodyshop Manager who will control the work flow and ensure every vehicle that leaves the workshop meets the required standards. It is important that the Bodyshop Manager has strong leadership qualities, prioritises staff development and motivation and is commercially minded.
The Workshop Controller or Bodyshop Manager will report into the General Manager who, depending on the structure of the operation may manage more than one site. In these instances they are sometimes referred to as Group Manager. The General Manager oversees the business in its entirety, implementing sales strategies, driving the business forward, overseeing recruitment and controlling the targets. These roles come with high expectation and responsibility but also offer generous a salary and benefits.
Working in an Accident Repair Centre provides a diverse and rewarding career with plenty of scope for personal development and career progression.
