Shift Mechanic – Ayr Depot

Salary: Up to £45,000

Joining Bonus: £1500

Do you have a passion to deliver and maintain quality?
Then don't delay! APPLY TODAY!

We're looking for an experienced Shift Mechanic to join our Ayr team.
* Up to £45,000
* Guaranteed minimum of 39 hours with overtime potentially available
* Joining bonus of £1,500 paid in instalments.
* Pass on your skills and experience to our future engineers through supporting our engineering apprentices.

Our Ayr Depot operates a fleet of over 60 vehicles, including electric buses, and is currently recruiting for a skilled Shift Mechanic. We are looking for someone who is friendly, flexible, reliable and takes pride in their work. You should be able to work on your own initiative and enjoy being part of a friendly and dedicated team. As a Shift Mechanic you will work a variety of shifts, on a 5 out of 7 days basis, and your role will include maintaining and repairing the Company's vehicles to the strict standards set by both Stagecoach and DVSA.

You'll be one of a team of engineers who maintains and repairs a modern and varied fleet of vehicles so our fantastic customers can travel safely and comfortably every day to healthcare and employment, to shopping and leisure, and to see friends and family.

Aside from the satisfaction of being a key worker in your community, there's loads of reasons for you to join the Stagecoach West Scotland team...

Great benefits including a generous company pension scheme, 28 days (increasing to 33 after 2 years), free travel for you and a companion, free financial education, and affordable loans, and finally a range of money-saving opportunities including discounts on holidays and retail, cinema outings, dental insurance, vehicle breakdown cover and hotels and attractions.

Free travel for you and a companion on our buses – so on your days off you can be off shopping without worrying about parking the car or heading off for a day in the city or the countryside without worrying about the cost of fuel or parking.

Training – a dedicated high level training programme to reinforce your existing skills and give an opportunity to gain a qualification in another trade.

Varied work – interestingly it's not all depot-based could well find yourself out and about dealing with vehicle issues on the road, so it won't always be the same four walls you're looking at. And as one of the UK's leading transport operators we're investing heavily in electric vehicles and depot infrastructure, so there's plenty to keep you interested.

Plenty of job security from being a key worker at the heart of our communities, where we always need great people servicing our fleet of vehicles, be they Alexander Dennis, Scania, Volvo or Optare

A safe environment – we provide boots, overalls, and specialist equipment so no need to worry about being safe and protected or having the right kit for the job.

Career development through developing your technical skills on future hybrid and electric vehicles, and career progression to management and directorship – a good number of our Engineering Directors started their career with us as mechanics and fitters.

Secondment opportunities to work elsewhere in the business – either on big events like Silverstone and Cheltenham Festival, or into our head office support functions

An employee assistance programme to support health and wellbeing through a confidential service available 24 hours a day which provides specialist guidance and assistance on a range of personal and work-related issues, from dealing with stress and anxiety to managing financial, marital, or legal issues. Face-to-face counselling sessions are also offered, alongside telephone and online support.

A great working environment with loads of opportunity to make new friends from a bunch of great workmates, managers who work hard to create great places to work, and employee networks building inclusive environments for women, veterans, carers, multicultural and LGBTQ+ colleagues.

Joining bonus of £1,500 paid in instalments.

The recruitment process is simple – you apply with your CV, we'll have a good read then get you in for an interview and give you a tour of the depot, and that's it!

There are a few of things we need from you:
* Completed a recognised apprenticeship.
* Have minimum of 4 years as an apprentice under your belt.

So, if that's you, and you like what we're offering, then we want to hear from you!

Sound good? Let's get the wheels in motion!
