Available Vacancies

Parts Advisor - Reading DepotHours of Work: Monday to Friday: 8am – 5pm Saturday Morning: 8am – 12pm (on a rota basis)
We are currently looking for a Parts Advisor to join our lively Reading depot.  The Parts Department plays a pivotal role within a dealership, sourcing items for our workshop team and customers alike.  The role would suit a bright, enthusiastic individual, who has excellent communication skills, works well with IT systems and possess a very good eye for detail.

Systems can be learnt, but a good mechanical mind that allows you to correctly identify the parts in question, would be a huge advantage, as would, a sound working knowledge of Groundcare and Agricultural machinery.

If you are looking for a strong and stable career, at a branch that has a friendly atmosphere, then please contact: .Karen Martin -


Groundcare Service Engineer - Specialising in 2-Stroke Machinery - Reading Depot

As well as having great products to sell, much of our success can be attributed to the outstanding aftersales support that our workshops are able to provide and we are now looking for an additional workshop engineer to join the Groundcare team.  This particular position is centred around the smaller hand-held machinery such as walk behind mowers, hedge cutters, chainsaws and brush cutters.  These 2-stroke machines need a particular eye for detail to ensure that faults are swiftly detected and repaired…it’s a real art and so whilst advanced service training from Stihl and Husqvarna will be provided, you must have a passion for this type of work.

About you… The ideal candidate will be a good all-round engineer who enjoys working as part of a team and can also take personal responsibility the quality of their work.  Good communication skills are also essential as it’s the conversations with your Service manager, the Parts department and the customers, that allow work to flow smoothly through the department.

Construction Engineer - Wallingford Depot

We are currently looking for an engineer to work on a variety of Construction products.  You would be joining a very knowledgeable team with a good mix of age and experience and whilst the work is technically challenging, we look to provide a well-structured training programme that works in conjunction with Kubota UK.  Much of the repair and service work is carried out on-site and so a fully expensed vehicle will be provided.  The mainly mobile role means that every day is different but you still retain the support of the base at Wallingford.  The majority of our work tends to be with plant hire companies, contractors and councils.                         

If you are looking for a strong and stable career, at a branch that has a friendly atmosphere, then please contact: .Karen Martin -


Agricultural Engineer - Wallingford / Cirencester Depots

We are currently looking for two top-flight Agricultural Service Engineers to join our busy Workshops in Wallingford and Cirencester. You will be joining very knowledgeable and friendly teams and, as you would expect, we have a very well-structured training programme that works in conjunction with the manufacturer. The work is technically challenging, and you will be working on some of the most advanced machinery in the market drawing heavily on your knowledge of diesel engines, transmissions, hydraulics and electrics. An existing knowledge of farm machinery isn’t essential, but you will need to have a positive appreciation for the countryside and the unique demands of farming if you are to really fall in love with the job!

If you are interested in this position, then please apply to Karen Martin -


Apprentice Service Engineer (Groundcare) Reading Branch....for 2019

As a Groundcare Service Apprentice, you will be joining an experienced team of Field Service Engineers who will pass their knowledge onto the next generation.  The work is extremely varied and will see you working on Kubota's range of Compact tractors and ride on mowers - the kind that are used by Golf Courses, Councils, Private Estates and Sports Grounds.  Some of this takes place within our workshops, but much is out on site where you begin with the basics of servicing before moving onto repairs, diagnostics and fault finding.

The apprenticeship is run in conjunction with Kubota, with block release at college and then you will spend time with us to develop what you have learnt during your time away.

At college, you will cover mechanical principles, engines, hydraulic systems, transmissions and electrics - in fact everything you need to build a sound engineering foundation.

On the assumption that you pass the apprenticeship, you will be well on the way to getting a service van of your own, and the beginnings of what should be the start of a very long and rewarding career.  If you would like to register your interest in this apprenticeship, please email


Valeter/Yard Person – Cirencester Depot (Mon - Fri: 8am - 5pm and alternate Saturday mornings)


During our time in Business, our core values haven’t changed but the machinery certainly has - with the most expensive tractors now costing over £300,000! Whilst they’re going to get dirty as soon as they go to work, they need to leave us gleaming and so we are looking for a valeter to join our Cirencester branch.  In between cleaning you will be responsible for the display and maintenance of our busy yard and so the role would suit a practical, friendly all-rounder who has an eye for detail and takes pride in everything they do.
