Our Service Advisors are the most important ambassadors for our customer service strategy. They have a shared enthusiasm to deliver the best possible customer experience at all times and ensure our customers continue to leave their vehicles in our safe hands for servicing and repairs. You don’t have to have motor industry experience as our bespoke induction programme will teach you everything you need to know. As long as you have worked in a customer service environment before and you have a passion for pleasing customers, we would love to hear from you.

As the main link between our Technical teams and Service Advisors, our Workshop Controllers maintain the efficient running of our workshops whilst maintaining high levels of productivity. They demonstrate excellent Technical knowledge and ensure that every service or repair is carried out to the highest standard so our customers are satisfied at all times.

This role really suits time served Technicians looking to take their first step into management so we are always interested in receiving applications from highly skilled and knowledgeable Technical experts.
