  • Brandon Hire Station offers the youngest hire fleet in the industry with a wide range of high quality supporting equipment to a broad customer base both regionally and nationally.

    Attracting the best people supports our aims of exceeding our customers’ expectations and enhancing shareholder value. As well as developing and promoting talent from within the business, our recruitment practices are designed to attract the very best from the pool of available talent.

    Our branch is looking to recruit an experienced mechanical fitter to carry out high standard repairs to own and customers’ machines according to manufacturer’s specifications.

    Our equipment goes out on hire with sometimes short turnarounds but still must meet our safety and test and run standards before re hire to the next customer.

    The equipment range includes power tools, lifting equipment, generators, mini plant and much more. You will ensure that spares are requested in order to facilitate the speedy repair of equipment and that damaged/worn stickers are replaced.

    Equipment is to be tested in line with test and run procedures, making sure it’s clean and fit for purpose whilst identifying repairs and status allocating correctly on the system. You may also be required to attend breakdowns at customers’ sites when required.

    We are looking to hear from applicants who can demonstrate experience of equipment repairs who have worked in a similar operation where timescales can be tight and deadlines need to be met. If you believe in producing quality workmanship that lasts and take a pride in finding the solution, we would love to hear from you.

    Can you offer what we are looking for?

    We would expect you to have a basic mechanical or electrical qualification

    Experience in the workplace of repairing various types of mechanical equipment

    Some IT skills as automated administration processes are in place

    A full UK Driving licence is essential
