Vehicle Mechanic

How do you keep a business on the move when it delivers almost anything, anywhere? As one of our vehicle mechanics, you'll have all the answers. When you stop and consider the size and diversity of our fleet, you'll need plenty of them too. Some you'll have already. Others you'll discover as you go. Either way, there'll be lots to keep you busy. From light vans right up to tractor trailer units, if it's on wheels, you'll keep it on the road.

Whether you're organising MOT inspections or responding to breakdowns; actioning work form vehicle reports or performing maintenance, speed is critical. Because time is money. So as well as knowing your way around many types of transport, you'll also be commercially aware and highly organised.

  • Shift premiums/location allowance and a generous tool allowance
  • Company pension, holiday pay, discounts at major retailers (e.g. Apple, cinemas) and attractions (e.g. Alton Towers, The London Eye) and many more

What you'll do:

  • A variety of repairs and maintenance work on a large fleet
  • Based at UPS Kentish Town, London NW5 3UP
  • Shift patterns: 10.00pm – 6.30am (40 hours per week), Flexibility required for overtime
  • Carry out regular maintenance schedules, complete online records and stock control

What you'll need:

  • City and Guilds or equivalent qualification in vehicle mechanics
  • Ideally, experience of working with commercial vehicles including HGVs
