Their role initially would be to assist with all duties in the workshop from tidying up the workshop, assisting senior technicians and learning to strip down and repair small engines. We often work Saturday mornings during the spring to autumn seasons and they would be expected to show willing at least two weekends a month.

Skills Required

Only candidates with a good strong work ethic and a desire to learn the industry will be considered for the role. We are a small family run business currently with four technicians and one office manager. The director and senior technician has been in the industry for over 30 years, and we have been located on the river for over 20 years, with a solid reputation within our customer base.
