CAREERS AT LISTER WILDER

We are big believers in developing peoples talents from an early age.  With this in mind we are always keen to open the door for work experience as this gives students a fascinating insight into our business.  Some fall in love with the idea of repairing machinery for a living, and for the most naturally gifted of these people, we offer access to the Kubota Apprenticeship scheme.  This provides a lovely blend of college-based learning alongside quality time with our team of expert engineers…and a combination that accelerates your development and sets you on the pathway to becoming a Groundcare, Agricultural or Construction Service Engineer of tomorrow.

For more details on either the Work Experience or the Kubota Apprenticeship scheme, please contact Karen Martin – karen@listerwilder.co.uk

Current Roles

Agricultural Service Engineer

Bristol

Full Desc

We require an additional Agricultural Service Engineer to join our Workshops in Bristol.

Full product training will be provided but we are looking to work with someone who already has a very solid foundation, ideally possessing an extensive knowledge of diesel engines, transmissions, electrics and hydraulics. Many of these skills will be interchangeable from related industries, but previous experience with Agricultural machinery would be ideal. It’s also important that you are comfortable in front of the customer as you’ll be speaking to many of them about the service, repair, diagnostic or warranty work that you have undertaken and ensuring they are happy with the job before moving on to the next.

If you are interested in this position, then please apply to Karen Martin –karen@listerwilder.co.uk

 

Agricultural Service Engineer

Ashford

Full Desc

We are also looking for an Agricultural Service Engineer to join us. You will be joining a very knowledgeable and friendly team 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 a wide range of mechanical agricultural equipment and drawing heavily on your knowledge of diesel engines, transmissions, hydraulics and electrics. An existing knowledge of farm machinery is essential, and 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!

Most of the work will be carried out on-site, therefore, a fully expensed service vehicle will be provided

Groundcare Service Engineer

Ockham

Full Desc

We are currently looking for an experienced Service Engineer to work on a variety of Groundcare products. Based at our Ockham branch you would be joining a very knowledgeable and friendly team with a good mix of age and experience and whilst the work is technically challenging, we look to provide a well-structured training program 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 Ockham and the majority of our work tends to be with contractors, councils, schools, golf courses and private estates within Surrey and the surrounding area.

Groundcare Service Apprentice

Ockham & Reading

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).
