Service Engineer – Groundcare Hire Department
Up to £35,000 (Dependent on Overtime)
Hours of Work: Monday to Thursday 8am – 5pm. Friday 8am – 4pm
About the role…
We are currently looking for a well-rounded engineer to service and maintain a wide variety of Groundcare products that are run by our Specialist Hire Department. Based at our Reading branch (Swallowfield) you would be joining a small and friendly team who make sure our Hire kit is kept in the very best condition and so attention to detail is key. A good understanding of lawn mowers, woodchippers, compact tractors (and their various attachments) would obviously be really helpful, however we recognise that an adaptable engineer with a desire to learn will be able to pick up the job relatively quickly and support will be on hand during this process.
Who we are…
Established in 1947, we are a family business that has steadily grown to become one of the more influential dealerships in the South of England. With just over 140 people in the team, we supply and support machinery to the Groundcare, Construction and Agricultural markets, a mix that has allowed us to weather the toughest of economic times. Our focus is ‘Sales with Service’ whereby we aim to provide the very highest levels of after sales care to our well-established customer base, something that led us to be awarded the Kubota Gold Plus award for service excellence. This doesn’t mean we get everything right, but we work hard to constantly improve the service on offer and we know this starts by finding like-minded Field Service Engineers who take similar pride in their work.
Product training will be provided but we are looking to work with someone who already has a very solid foundation, ideally possessing a good knowledge of diesel engines, transmissions, electrics and hydraulics – And many of these skills will be interchangeable from related industries.
