  • Are your talents going to waste?

    Are you wasting your life sitting in traffic?

    There are so many horror stories out there!

    Work conditions that just suck.
    And mechanical workshops are some of the worst!

    The workshop is a dungeon - With mess all over the place, if you drop a circlip - you'll never find again
    Don't even get me started on that tired, out of date equipment
    Worse still...
    There's no prospects of promotion
    You're never thanked for your efforts
    You never get a bonus
    You never get any training
    And you have to drive half way across Auckland for this!

    Here is a Testimonial from one of our team - "I should have moved years ago, it's great to be appreciated and not taken advantage of, and to top it off, I get a bonus every month! Kelvin I'm here till I retire. Thanks."


    It's time for a change....

    Due to one of our techs moving off the tools, we have a position available.

    It would be great if you are the best mechanic in NZ...
    But we hire on attitude (before skills)

    Ideally, you will be:
    • At the level of being able to work unsupervised
    • Focused on turning out quality workmanship
    • A driven individual

    • On the lookout for training opportunities
    • WOF certified or have the suitable experience to achieve it
    • Familiar with latest repair techniques and testing/diagnostic equipment
    Key responsibilities include:
    • Diagnosis of vehicles faults
    • Repair & service of vehicles to a high standard
    • Communication with customers when required
    • Use of electronic equipment and software
    What's more
    Because you have a great attitude - you'll be thanked each day
    It's a simple thing
    But we know it carries a lot of weight
    Basically, we treat people the way we want to be treated

    Oh yeah
    I almost forgot
    Our workshop - well, it's clean, well-lit and full of really great people who respect each other.
