Apprentice Workshop Technician - Morpeth

Blackshaws Mitsubishi Morpeth is currently looking to recruit an Apprentice Technician who will be enrolled on the 3 year Mitsubishi Apprenticeship Programme.  Mitsubishi training will involve structured block release at Mitsubishi's state-of-the-art Training Centre in Cirencester which is equipped with all the latest diagnostic equipment, tools and apparatus to simulate a real working environment.  All training will run alongside practical work experience within Blackshaws' Morpeth workshop where our Apprentice will be under the guidance of a Senior Technician who will act as a mentor.  At the end of the 3 year period it is expected that full Mitsubishi accreditation will be achieved equivalent to an NVQ Level 3 in Maintenance and Repair of Light Vehicles.

This is an excellent opportunity for any school leaver who is interested in pursuing a career as a Vehicle Technician within the motor industry.  In addition to a structured programme of learning within a team environment, the programme is also designed to improve communication skills and enhance personal development.  Although a permanent position at Blackshaws can't be guaranteed at the end of the Apprenticeship it is hoped that an opening within the business will be found after the 3 year training programme has been completed.

Any interested applicants should have 5 GCSEs at grades A to C (predicted) and should send or email their CV and a covering letter to william.blackshaw@blackshaws.net by 31st July 2017.  The Apprenticeship will commence in September 2017.

Vehicle Technician - Alnwick

We currently have a vacancy for a Vehicle Technician at our Alnwick Nissan and Suzuki car dealership.  With responsibility for carrying out repairs and servicing of motor vehicles plus MOT testing this is a busy, challenging role.  The successful applicant will be required to maintain an up to date knowledge of vehicle service, repair and warranty policies and must be able to use computerised vehicle diagnostic equipment and complete job cards/ vehicle repair paperwork in an accurate, efficient manner.

An accredited qualification in vehicle repair and maintenance to a minimum of NVQ Level 3 is essential.  Experience in a franchised dealer workshop would be an advantage but is not a requirement.  Of more importance is your technical and practical knowledge of general vehicle maintenance and willingness to undertake further manufacturer training.  You will also need to be able to work well under pressure with excellent attention to detail plus strong team working skills.

In return we can offer you a career within our friendly and family orientated business together with competitive remuneration.  Any interested applicants should send their CV and a covering letter to william.blackshaw@blackshaws.net by Friday 30th June 2017.
