From humble beginnings to London’s most trusted business-class car service in just over forty years, Addison Lee have grown with and for the times.
And yet, so little has changed about us. We still believe that taxis and minicabs can be so much more than just a means to an end – our clients are right to expect extraordinary standards, and by allying the latest technologies with traditional customer service values, we can not only disrupt the industry, we can revolutionise it.
Today, our iconic cars are responsible for getting over 10 million people where they need to go each year in London alone. And with our business expanding every day – across both the UK and worldwide – we will continue to deliver that same executive service consistently, no matter where we are.
We are looking for a Senior Vehicle Technician to join dedicated team. As a Senior member of our workshop, you will be relied upon to allocate work to the wider team, as well as managing your own workload that also requires you to repair, service and maintain the Addison Lee fleet, consisting of VW Sharan’s, Mercedes Benz and Ford Galaxy’s to name a few. In addition to these technical duties, you will lead and supervise in the absence of Management as well as carry out basic administration duties.
The ideal candidate will be an experienced Senior technician with at least level 3 certification and four years experience. You could be looking for a new environment in which to excel or perhaps you are just looking for a new challenge working for an iconic and trusted brand such as Addison Lee.
If you have potential, we want to unlock it, so, if you are ambitious and willing to go the extra mile, we want to hear from you.
