WORKSHOP MANAGERS / TECHNICIANS
salary prospects

Dependent on experience but it could be anything from £20K to £26K, for a more senior position.

role description

Essentially you’d be dealing with a whole range of workshop issues. That might be ensuring a fleet of vehicles is in good working order, repairing those that aren’t, and troubleshooting any other vital technology that might need it.

entry requirements?

Engineering is a specialist role, and it’s one that certainly requires qualifications along the way. However, there are opportunities to progress whether you’re straight out of high school and want to learn, or indeed if you possess a relevant degree or experience (and so already have a defined skillset).

what sort of person?

People who love problem solving and fixing things, but who are comfortable working alone as well as in teams. You’ll also need to be numerate, good with technology, methodical and tenacious.
