Your aim: ensuring we get their vehicle back on the road safely and in quick time.

You will report into the General Manager who is as passionate about customer service as they are about their team and is absolutely determined to make their Bodyshop the best in group. There is a family feel and buzz where everyone helps each other to achieve the goals of the site and to ensure our customers are consistently delighted with the service we provide.
