The South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust serves an area of 10,000 square miles over seven counties, a total 20% of mainland England. When providing such an essential service to the public and covering such a large area it is important that our vehicles are maintained to the highest standards.

Due to continual growth in our busy Fleet maintenance department the Trust is currently looking for a highly skilled and experienced Motor Vehicle Technician to join our team. The role will mainly cover our Gloucestershire site in Gloucester to maintain our fleet of vehicles.

Our workshops Technicians perform a vital and challenging role to support the ambulance service. This involves maintaining and repairing specialist vehicles and equipment to the highest standards while ensuring maximum levels of vehicle availability at all times.

The successful candidate will have served a recognised Motor Vehicle Indentured apprenticeship or completed an equivalent training scheme and obtained City and Guilds Motor Vehicle Craft studies parts 1, 2 & 3 or Motor Vehicle Technicians qualification or BTEC equivalents.

A full UK driving licence held for at least one year with a maximum of 3 points allowed for some offences and a category C1 is essential, but the trust can assist with obtaining this.

We offer a competitive salary up to £27,434 (including recruitment and retention payment) for a 37 ½ hour week and excellent NHS benefits package. Additional training will be given for specialised equipment.

South Western Ambulance Service is working towards equal opportunities. Due to under representation within the Trust we would particularly welcome applications from minority ethnic group individuals, women and those with a disability.
