Full Time, £20,000 - £30,000 per annum Dependant on Experience

About Us
We are a reputable, family owned company and after 15 years of success with Ducati Glasgow we have expanded and taken on the franchise for Triumph Glasgow for the West of Scotland and moved to our new state-of-the-art showroom at Pit Lane, Hillington Park, Glasgow.

All our departments are hardworking and committed and we now proudly employ nearly 40 passionate and experienced staff members, almost all of whom are bikers.

The After Sales Facility
Opened on March 25th 2017, our state-of-the-art dealership is the largest purpose-built motorcycle dealership in the country and one of the biggest in Europe. A product of a £3.5 million investment which includes a no expense spared, industry leading £150,000 workshop installation.

We have 10-technical work-bays with electro hydraulic lifts and our bespoke custom-built work benches and wall units are fully integrated with the latest diagnostic equipment, compressed air / oil / water dispensing system, power and data, as well as fully equipped with essential manufacturer specialist tooling.

A newly commissioned MOT bay and tyre fitment bay complete this full service and maintenance area in the heart of the dealership resulting in a full future capability of 11 full time technicians.

The centrally heated workshop is complete with full under floor exhaust extraction plus auxiliary ambient air cleaning as an additional feature. We also have our own fully fitted kitchen with seating area, wash area and bathroom for our staff.

The Role
Candidates will be required to work on both new and previous model Ducati and Triumph Motorcycles as well as other manufacturer models from our used bike stock. Candidates should be familiar with computer diagnostic equipment and be fully competent in the repair and service environment for modern motorcycle engine work. You should be able to work unsupervised in a safe manner, within timescales and to a high standard.

Ideal candidates will have at least three years experience within the motorcycle service industry. MOT certifications will be an advantage although not essential. Good attention to detail, awareness of safety procedures and a full, unrestricted motorcycle licence is essential. Up to date knowledge of vehicle and consumer legislation and trade practices is essential.

We are looking for a team member who will bring quality skills, have drive and passion, and be able to help progress and advance the development of this very busy workshop. Typical working hours will be Tuesday - Friday 8.30am - 5.30pm and Saturday 8.30am-5pm. You must also be able to work under pressure in a high standard and busy environment.
