Workshop Foreman

Employer: Northgate plc
Job Title: Workshop Foreman
Location: Exeter
Salary: Up to £22,000
Date: 13/3/2013

Here at Northgate, everyone plays a part in what we do. We're the kind of people who love rolling up our sleeves, getting stuck in, solving problems and meeting challenges. And if you have a talent for delivering great service to our customers, we could have a big part for you to play too.

As a Foreman at the Exeter depot you'll play a key role in our workshop, where you'll oversee the quality of work, the condition of all equipment, and the development and training of mechanics and apprentices.

Ultimately, it's all about meeting targets and driving performance, following health and safety procedures, and keeping everyone focused on customer satisfaction.

A City and Guilds Level 1,2 & 3 or equivalent qualification in Motor Vehicle Service and Repair and a full driving licence are both essential. You'll also need some experience of leading a team of technicians, great communication skills, good IT skills and ideally knowledge of LCVs, HGVs and auto electrics. You'll need a flexible approach and you'll thrive in a pressured environment.

If you're looking to progress your workshop experience into an office environment, this could be the role for you.

In return, you'll discover a friendly and fast-paced working environment, and the chance to build a career that's just as exciting as our future.

We're offering a competitive salary, 23 days holiday, pension and a flexible benefits scheme.
