Service Manager recruitment agency listing

Working within the servicing and repairs area of the automotive industry, a service manager will usually be tasked with the same mechanical and maintenance roles of a service technician whilst also carrying management responsibilities. These responsibilities may include controlling finances, training staff and liaising with senior executive personnel. A specialist automotive service manager recruitment agency will have search techniques and assessment procedures in place to supply candidates with the necessary technical and organisational skills to be an asset to their clients.

The salary of a service manager can vary depending on the company and where it's based in the UK, but average staff can expect to earn around £25K per annum. This can rise with experience but personnel with more than 20 years in the industry tend to see a decline in their earnings. London and other city locations in the South East of the UK usually provide the best job opportunities and highest salaries for service manager candidates.

While there are no distinct job role qualifications needed to be a service manager, candidates may look to take courses in areas such as accounting, automotive engineering or customer relations. It's likely that a professional may progress to the position of service manager from being a technician or salesperson and this could require specific management training. As well as being suitably qualified, candidates also need to be organised, have strong communication skills and be able to lead a team. Automotive recruitment agencies have the resources and expertise to place service managers that can demonstrate these qualities into permanent, temporary or contract vacancies.
