Duties of the post:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a HGV Vehicle Mechanic to join our busy  Vehicle Workshop based at Commerce Way in Lancing.  You will be joining a team who are responsible for maintaining and supporting the Council’s fleet of vehicles for waste, recycling, cleansing and parks services.

  • Is able to identify pragmatic solutions to problems and challenges that may arise whilst also recognising at which point they need to seek assistance
  • Has, as a minimum, basic IT and administrative skills
  • Shows attention to detail
  • Has excellent interpersonal skills and is a team player

A qualification in class 4 & 7 MOT testing and some taxi inspections is desirable but not essential as full training will be given to the successful candidate
