Job description

Van/Light Tipper Mechanics required for immediate ongoing contract.

Opus People Solutions on behalf of Bromsgrove District and Redditch Borough Council are looking for two Van/Light Tipper Mechanics to join the Workshop and Fleet Team on an initial up to 3-month contract.

The successful candidates will either be based at Bromsgrove Depot and Redditch Depot and will be working in a small, friendly team, in an environment where you are more than just a number, and safety and quality come in place of additional sales and profit.

As a Van/Light Tipper Mechanic you will undertake the service, repair, maintenance and inspections of light Fleet vehicles and light plant machinery owned by the council, as well as carrying out accident damage Inspections when needed. The successful candidate will also need to work from the other Council Workshop Bromsgrove/Redditch whenever needed depending on resources and availability at each site. Ideally the candidate will have experience in metal fabrication and be a qualified welder, however this is desirable and not essential.

The successful candidate must have experience of working in a fleet workshop and have the following:

  • City & Guilds Level 3 minimum or equivalent for light commercial Van/tipper repair and maintenance.
  • Light Plant machinery (CITB Plant Operators Certificates highly desirable), for the repair and maintenance of walk behind and ride on mowers, pole saws and blowers, chippers, and stump grinders, etc.
  • Any welding/fabricating skills and Qualifications/Certificates would be again highly desirable, but not essential.

If you are a person who takes pride in what you do and would like to make a difference to your community, without the pressures of making that next unnecessary sale, and only carrying out repairs that are needed, then this is the role for you, and we would love to hear from you!
