Vehicle Mechanics recruitment agency listing

Vehicle mechanics specialise in providing vehicle maintenance and repair services. They may work with body work issues, engine problems or electrical malfunctions.

Vehicle mechanics require NVQs or BTEC National qualifications in vehicle repair and technology. Many employers offer apprenticeships in which prospective vehicle mechanics can learn from trained staff while they earn a living. Such apprenticeship schemes tend to lead to nationally recognised qualifications in vehicle mechanics.

It is vital for a vehicle mechanic to have an extensive knowledge of the ins and outs of motor vehicles. Mechanics should also be able to communicate with customers and other mechanics. They must be methodical, willing to keep their skills up-to-date and able to work to tight deadlines.

The majority of trained vehicle mechanics are self-employed or employed for small businesses. There are also opportunities for mechanics to work for large companies, such as the RAC. Employment openings for mechanics usually require candidates to work full-time. However, it is possible to acquire part-time jobs with private firms. Skilled mechanics are currently in high demand across the UK.

Newly-trained vehicle mechanics receive a starting salary of around £7,000 a year, whereas experienced and technically skilled mechanics earn around £23,000 a year. Many experienced car mechanics choose to work either for large companies or establish their own businesses.
