The workshop delivers maintenance, servicing and warranty work for a fleet of vehicles, also supporting the de-fleeting vehicles. The workshop is an important part of our business, supporting a broad range of business customers.

With an ever-changing workload, our modern workshop is equipped with the latest technology and manufacturer-specific diagnostic tools - it is a bustling, exciting place to be. You have a central role to play in the smooth running of the workshop by maximising the profitability, productivity and efficiency of the workshop team. You are also the decision-maker for the technicians on recharge and warranty opportunities too.

Key to your success is your ability to ensure the workshop produces work that complies with the highest technical and quality standards and, above all, helps us deliver on our service commitment to customers.

About you

  • You have a passion for customer service - you understand what is important to your customers and suppliers. If there is an issue, as Workshop Controller, you will know just how to solve it.
