Stagecoach Vehicle Technician (Shift)

We need you!!

If you love being a vehicle technician but you're thinking "I fancy a change", "I want more variety" or "I want better hours", then we may just have exactly what you're looking for!

You've probably seen some of our vehicles driving around the East of England, including our shiny new vehicles, transporting our fantastic customers in 31 million journeys across the East every year.

Those customers rely on our services to get them to work, to the high street, to hospitals, to days away and nights out - and as part of our engineering team you'll be a key part in making sure our vehicles are in tip top condition to do just that. It's a really important role within our depot, so we'll make sure you're as looked after as our vehicles are!

You'll have the responsibility of maintaining and repairing our fleet of 55 buses and coaches in Fenstanton, part of the near 350 we operate across the East. Vehicles range from bus to coach and include Dennis, Volvo and Optare. We invested GBP4.5 million in new buses in the last 2 years, and thus there's some state of the art vehicles to work on.

Don't worry if you've not worked on these vehicles before (or indeed buses) - we'll train you on everything you need to know, and you'll be supported by a great team of Fitters, fellow Technicians, Electricians and Engineering Managers who all pull together to do a brilliant job.

And it's not all depot-based work. You could find yourself out and about dealing with vehicle issues on the road, so it won't always be the same four walls you're looking at!

Aside from the reward of helping to deliver an incredible experience to our customers, there's plenty more we can offer:

* Job security - we've been going since 1980, we turn over GBP1.3bn and we're not planning on hanging our boots up anytime soon!

* Free travel - for you and your companion on our buses. That means on your days off you can be off shopping for free without worrying about parking the car, or heading off for a day in the city without paying a fortune in petrol or train fares!

* A great regular income and great benefits - up to GBP38,000 per annum to be precise, plus a good pension scheme to look after you after you've hung up the spanner!

* Promotions - perhaps you're happy sticking as a Technician and that's fine by us, but if you want to progress we'll support you every step of the way. You will be given exposure to work which will develop your skills and experience to allow you to progress your career further. Many of our Stagecoach East Engineering Managers started off as Technicians - so that could very well be you in the not too distant future!

You don't have to come from a bus background (but we wouldn't be put off if you did either!), but you will need to have worked in a engineering technician field - truck, haulage, automotive, plant, rail, farm - if it moves, it's good experience for working on buses!

Hours-wise, you'll be working 39 hours per week on a Shift Technician rota so if you fancy the '5 over 7' routine, we've got you covered. Initial training will take place during a day shift and we can talk about this I more detail when we meet.
