Vehicle Mechanic Technician - 8.30 am till 5.15 pm Monday to Friday - NO WEEKENDS! For the past 40 years we have proudly resided on the same prominent spot in Chorley.

We really like to look after our customers and offer the personal touch that you just don't get from the large dealer groups. As a result of this we have a massive amount of repeat business and recommendations from our customers.

Formally a Renault/Dacia franchise we have reputation for supplying used cars of the highest calibre and we currently have a wide selection of pre-owned vehicles of many makes. We are still a Renault/Dacia authorised repairer and provide all the usual dealer facilities of genuine Renault/Dacia parts and servicing to manufacturer's schedules and standards. We can also undertake warranty work under Renault/Dacia's manufacturers warranty.

The Vehicle Mechanic Technician Opportunity:

We currently have an opening for a skilled Vehicle Technician.

We are currently looking to add two levels of Technician to the team so we will consider applicants with varying levels of experience and training.

We have a fully equipped workshop and utilise the relevant special tooling, latest diagnostic equipment and best practises. Quality focused with a right first time mentality. Honesty and high levels of integrity are a must.

As the Senior Technician you would be responsible for the majority of the diagnosis but would also be required to do servicing and other repairs.

Although the majority of the vehicles entering the workshop are Renault/Dacia we do undertake work on all makes of vehicles (including sales vehicles) so there would be some diagnostic, servicing and repairs of non Renaults.

Aftersales only work a 5 day week- Monday to Friday, 8.30 am till 5.15 pm.
