Current Roles

Groundcare Service Engineer - Specialising in 2-Stroke Machinery

Cirencester

Full Desc

We are now looking for an additional workshop engineer to join the Groundcare team at our Cirencester branch.  This particular position is centered 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.

The ideal candidate will be a good all-round engineer who enjoys working as part of a team and can also take personal responsibility for 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.

Groundcare Service Apprentice

Ockham and 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).
