  • Why join MEP Hire? Firstly, we are a specialist market leading rental company in the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, & commercial fit-out sectors. But more than that we are big enough to matter but definitely small enough to care. Whether it be customers, suppliers, or our own colleagues, we want to make the difference.

    We aspire to be a business with the right ethos – a balance between delivering outstanding service to customers whilst creating value for our stakeholders including our employees.

    Do you want to make a difference and be part of a successful and growing specialist business and be at the heart of our next period of growth?

    As a Fitter, you will be responsible for carrying out repairs to Hire Station and customers’ machines according to manufacturer’s specifications to a high standard. You will ensure that spares are requested in order to facilitate the speedy repair of equipment and that damaged/worn stickers are replaced. Also, you will be accountable for marking fleet items, ensuring correct allocation of costs and affordability of repairs plus equipment ownership, which will be easy to identify.

    The role requires an effective people person with the ability to set objectives and assess progress but also to ensure that you are fully trained and developed in order to carry out your roles.
