Jobs at Blue Diamond Riley Services

 

Vintage Car Mechanic – ROCHFORD Location

What are we looking for?

A good technical background and knowledge of classic and vintage cars, although this does not have to be Riley specific as manuals and literature will be provided to support you in your role.  Most important of all is having a strong passion for vintage and classic cars.

We are looking for someone with 5 plus years of experience in all aspects of mechanical works from servicing to engine and gearbox re-builds.

We are a small team, so flexibility is a key part of the role.  Your other duties will include preparation for and support during rally and racing events, meeting and greeting the public and representing the business during on-site events.  Flexibility is also important, at Blue Diamond Riley Services we have 50 years of Restoring, Reviving and Rediscovering and no two days have been the same.

You will be a team player, able to work under your own steam and want to do the job to the best possible standard – as the old phrase goes, if you do it right you only do it once.

What’s it like working for us?

This job is based in our Rochford workshop closer to the sea and sun than our Bicester Heritage site.

We are pre-war Riley specialists, but other pre and post war marques do make it through the workshop doors, we don’t love them any less…

The team carry out everything from basic servicing to full nut and bolt restorations and everything in-between, we also regularly compete and prepare cars for all of the major UK historic endurance rally events.

As a family run business with a passion for Riley’s our employees are at the heart of everything we do, so we not only offer a competitive salary but, the following benefits;

  • Use of our own vintage cars to put your work and skills to the test when you aren’t at work.
  • Summer hours May – September, 12:30 finish on a Friday.
  • Long term service benefits, increased holidays on a sliding scale – up to a maximum of five days additional annual leave.
  • Long service bonus payments.
  • Company Pension.

The stuff we really need you to have before applying:

  • Commitment to delivering excellence every time.
  • Sound grounding of mechanical knowledge gained on either Vintage or Classic cars.
  • At least five years’ experience gained in a workshop environment.
  • Effective communication skills.
  • Strong attention to detail.
