Vacancy description

We are looking to give a hardworking and dedicated Panel Beater the opportunity to join our Spraymaster Bodyshop based in Swindon.

On a daily basis you will be surrounded by some of the World’s most prestigious cars, and if that isn’t exciting enough, you will be the person responsible for repairing and replacing their damaged parts!

Your role will also include:

  • Dismantling and rebuilding vehicles in preparation for other operations in the repair process.
  • Carrying out Jig work and structural repairs. 
  • Correctly storing displaced parts.
  • Identifying any additional faults or damage and reporting to Supervisor.
  • Access to clean and modern equipment.

Whilst this role may not be customer facing, you will still play an important part in making sure we give our customer’s an exceptional experience – with the aim of exceeding their expectations every time. To achieve this, you will need to work collaboratively with other members of the Bodyshop team, demonstrating that you are a team player with good communication skills and attention to detail, to ensure that all deadlines are met.

Due to the technical nature of this position, we are looking for candidates who are qualified to a NVQ/VRQ level in Vehicle Accident Repair and have experience of working in a similar role in a Bodyshop. Whilst we do have some requirements to be considered for this role, we will nevertheless still be committed to providing you with a tailored training programme from both Group Staff and the Manufacturers we represent to ensure you are equipped with all the skills and confidence you need to do your job well. This will include support with all modern repair techniques.  

We look forward to hearing from you.

An early application is advised.

No agencies please unless otherwise arranged.

We’re fortunate to receive a large response to our adverts every week. You’ll never receive an automated response from us – it’s something that we find too impersonal – and whilst we try to respond to every email, the amount of applications we receive sometimes makes that difficult. Therefore, if you don’t hear from us within 14 days, this means that unfortunately your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion. Please be assured we read every single one and if we think you might be relevant for a future role, we’ll keep your details on our file, and will arrange to contact you should a suitable vacancy arise in the future. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any feedback. Thank you.
