It’s a wonderful opportunity to grow with a franchise and company that’s going from strength to strength, therefore if you’d like to know more details of the role or to come in for a socially distanced chat then we look forward to hearing from you….and please note that all enquiries will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

Most of the work will be carried out on farm, therefore, a fully expensed service vehicle will be provided, and this can also be used to travel to and from work.

Parts Person / Goods Inwards (Full-time)

Cirencester

Full Desc

Cirencester is a very busy branch and it’s bursting with talent and experience. We are now looking for an additional Parts Person to join the team. 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. 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 and this would allow progression within the department.

Groundcare Service Apprentice

Ashford, Ockham, Reading and Cirencester

Full Desc

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.

Skills required:

Grade 4 or above in GCSE Maths and English is an absolute minimum but the successful candidate will also need to demonstrate logical thought processes and problem-solving ability (diagnostics). Hands on coordination and organisational skills (working tidily and efficiently).
