Motor Vehicle Technician
Are you an experienced technician who takes real pride in what you do and is passionate about working for a charismatic and iconic global brand? Welcome to BMW.
BMW Group Retail
Working in BMW Group Retail is an altogether different experience to any other career you might have known – in or outside the automotive world. There’s the passion our team have for the Group’s world-famous brands. The collective pride in the quality of our design, technology and engineering. The satisfaction of giving every customer an exceptional experience. And a sense of excitement about the future and what it holds.
Welcome to the future of automotive retail
Your technical knowhow and our state-of-the-art technology – it’s an unbeatable combination. We’re using diagnostic technology in our workshops that’s years ahead of the competition. It makes our lives easier and gets our vehicles back on the road where they belong as quickly as possible.
Don’t worry if the digital world is a bit daunting to you at the moment. At our purpose-built, state-of-the-art training and development facility in Wokefield Park (near Reading), The BMW Group Academy UK will provide you with the training required to get you up-to-speed.
With our BMW Group certified trainers, you’ll receive all the coaching and support you need to make the most of your future with us. For Technicians, we have specially developed a fast-track training programme which will enable you to more quickly progress in your career by building on the skills you’ve already gained. It’s ideal for those who’ve already completed another vehicle manufacturer’s training programme or have hold specific IMI qualifications.
You’ll work on electrical, electronic, hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical systems for a range of MINI models. With our diagnostic technology at your fingertips, you’ll inspect components for wear and tear, carry out technical maintenance, repair or replace parts, as well as verifying vehicle functions and their subsystems and performing retrofitting work – all to exceed the expectations of our customers. We’ll also look to you to support and guide less experienced technicians and apprentices.
We’ll expect applicants to have completed their Level 3 NVQ in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair, or equivalent, along with experience in a workshop environment. A driving licence is essential. A genuine team player who loves to share your knowledge with others, you’re continually focused on the needs of customers.
Your hard work will be rewarded with subsidised manufacturer car purchase scheme available to both you and your family, ride to work scheme, pension scheme, access to use BMW products, access to bespoke training courses at the state of the art BMW Training Academy and globally recognised BMW accreditation and certification.
