Our client, a commercial vehicle transport and haulage firm in the Cheltenham area, is currently looking to hire a skilled HGV Technician for their business!???

Reporting to the Workshop Manager and responsible for a large diverse fleet of vehicles (predominantly DAF), as a HGV Technician your key objectives will include:

  • To complete all service work and defined maintenance work of the utmost quality and efficiency within allocated time schedules.
  • Supply a professional performance in all aspects of work activities to make an essential contribution to the value and retention of customers.

In order to be eligible you will ideally be qualified to Level 3 standard in HGV Maintenance and Repair however this is non-essential provided you have a strong and stable time served track record as a HGV Technician.

A HGV Cat C+E driving license or any practical experience working on DAF vehicles would be highly advantageous however it is non-essential at this stage.

For your hard work our client is offering:

  • Starting salary between £12-14 per hour dependent upon experience and current earnings.

  • Overtime subject to availability.
