• Job description

        As an HGV Technician, you thrive on problem-solving, taking pride in delivering a first-time fix working with pace and purpose, so, when it comes to your employer, don’t be a forgotten cog in the wheel. Join a flagship business, synonymous with Mercedes-Benz, offering standout benefits and career potential.

        At Sparshatt Truck and Van, an HGV Technician is no pigeon-hole job. Without you, business grinds to a halt. From emergency services to major supermarkets, vehicles need quality repairs.

        If interested, we offer

        • A £2,000 signing-on bonus (for direct applicants) and a bonus of up to £1,500 per year
        • Unrivalled, professional learning potential via the Mercedes Benz Technical Pathway
        • Working in a clean and modern workshop with a collaborative team of 20 technicians
        • Honing and developing diverse skills, working on the latest vehicles and technology
        • Being truly respected as a team player –with perks and pizza days to free tickets for events at Bands Hatch
        • Joining a flagship brand but also a family-run business with a people-focused culture

        Proudly ‘Powered by People’, Sparshatt Truck & Van offers huge resources for professional growth. Across electrics, engines, diagnostics, and management, you’ll have access to courses and qualifications.

        What we are looking for

        • HGV experience – at least three years of industry experience specific to HGVs
        • Ideally Level 3 in City & Guilds or IMI Heavy Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Qualified, or equivalent experience
        • Computer literate: comfortable using smart devices to log and upload documentation

        The working hours for this position are formed of two shift patterns (6:00am to 14:00pm and 12:00 to 20.00pm), which rotate weekly. It’s Monday to Friday, with overtime available on Saturday mornings paid at time and half.

        This is a rich and varied role, inclusive of engine rebuilds, maintenance and services, and signing vehicles off as roadworthy. You also need to log your work, digitally, on the job, as you do it.

        Additional benefits

        • Performance-based bonus scheme of up to £1,500 a year
        • Regular overtime opportunities paid at time-and-a-half
        • Standout learning and development opportunities via the Mercedes Benz Technical Pathway
        • 24 days’ annual leave, plus bank holidays on top
        • Company pension (Royal London) via a salary sacrifice scheme
        • £20,000 death in-service benefit
        • Free staff parking
        • Access to free, independent advice on finance, health, and wellbeing
