It is anticipated that the business will be for sale in 10 years time and so this will be a perfect opportunity for someone to position themselves for a management buy-out.
This is a highly responsible role. You will be charged with managing all aspects of the day to day running of the business, answering only to the MD.
The role requires a broad spectrum of knowledge and a flexible “can do” approach., coupled with grit and determination to succeed.

We’re always looking for skilled technicians capable of working to the high standards our customers expect from us.
The potential exists for Mercedes specific training for experienced technicians to enhance their skillset, however this is dependent on the availability of courses with Mercedes in Milton Keynes, which are not as frequent as we would like.
Mercedes training is not an essential requirement for applicants.
We are currently looking to employ a young individual for a 3 year formal apprenticeship.
This is an outstanding opportunity for someone who is hungry to learn and take advantage of what is a unique opportunity to work for a company with our experience, history and profile.
The successful applicant will not only get the opportunity to work on the very latest modern Mercedes motor cars, but also gain invaluable knowledge of the repair and restoration of classic vehicles.
The post also includes attendance at the Mercedes Training Centre in Milton Keynes.
