Classic Car Mechanic
We are the only classic car hire business with its own full time workshop. This role will support our Workshop Manager to maintain our fleet of 20 hire cars - ranging from 1950s models to 1990s - and our regular flow of servicing, restoration and maintenance work for third party clients. The job is full time, 37.5 hrs per week, Monday to Friday with some weekend work on a rota basis. Overtime is available.
The successful candidate will have existing experience of repairing or maintaining classic cars, either as a job or part-time interest, particularly mechanical experience. Formal qualifications are desirable but not essential, as is knowledge of bodywork repairs. You should ideally have your own tools. You must have a positive attitude, professional manner and good communication skills.
Between March and October each year we run 3-4 driving experiences per week. These include our popular road trips and classic tasters as well as corporate events.
These events are run by our Event Coordinators. The role includes managing the experiences, travelling with the customers on the road trips and administering the day, including paperwork, lunch stops, car swaps and so on.
The role will suit someone with an interest in classic cars and meeting people. It is offered on a 'zero hours' basis so that you can pick and choose when you work based on a pre-agreed monthly rota.
No knowledge of classic car repair and maintenance is necessary but you must have a professional and polite manner, friendly disposition and be organised. Experience of driving a two vehicle with a trailer is desirable, but not essential - if you do not have this experience we can provide training.
