Driver C+E (class 1) with an interest in mechanics? Looking for a new challenge?

If so, this is a unique opportunity for a professional driver with class 1 experience and some mechanical skills to develop a specialist long-term career with a respected high-tech logistics and installation company based near Didcot in Oxfordshire.

The role involves working in small teams to transport and deliver high value medical equipment to hospitals and private clinics in the UK, Ireland and across Europe and supporting our Technicians with the installation on site.

Delivery of large and complex systems requires an ability to follow written method statements and safe systems of work at all times, to think on your feet when things don’t always go to plan and communicate clearly with colleagues, contractors and customers.

Providing effective technical support means you must be able to follow floor plans, measure accurately, use power tools confidently and solve problems as they arise. Full training is given on the job to people who have the right aptitude and attitude.

A professional, positive outlook is required, as is the ability to remain calm under pressure, follow guidelines and take direction from Project Managers and Lead Technicians on site.

You can expect to work away from home, spending three to five days supporting each installation. Weekend working is a regular feature of the role. Assignment of work tends to be at short notice and requires significant flexibility.

Whatever stage you are at in your career, we can offer full training with plenty of opportunities to expand your skillset and continue your career progression.

Applicants must live within 90 minutes’ driving distance of their location as the loaded vehicle will leave from and return to Head Office before and after installations.

Essential requirements:

* C+E (Class 1) driving licence
* Mechanical or electrical skills
* Customer service focus
* Clear understanding of Health and Safety requirements
* A good command of the English language
* Ability to work flexibly
* Current passport
