We know that our customer’s vehicles make getting from A to B that much easier, whether it’s to do the weekly shop, the school run or to get things delivered, it’s all important. We are proud that in 2018 we helped over 86,000 customers get back on the road quickly, smoothly and safely and we’re on track to help 92,000 customers this year.

What we’re looking for:

The future is ambitious now the technologies used in Body Shops are evolving every single day, which is really helping us re-shape vehicle repair industry. That’s why we’re excited to be growing our teams and looking for people to join us as either a;

  • Paint Technician
  • Panel Technician

All roles are at the heart of our Auto Services business and you’ll need be enthusiastic, upbeat and committed to delivering the best repair service.

As a MET Technician we want you to bring your previous experience, skills and knowledge to the team. You’ll need to demonstrate your experience in stripping, refurbishing and fitting a wide variety of vehicles, as well as working to tight deadlines to meet our customer’s needs. If you love to stay busy this role is really for you.

Paint Technicians produce high quality of work and really do have a high attention to detail. We are looking for your expertise and your ability to work towards tight deadlines.
