Part to full time vacancy opening up in a few months.
I will need someone experienced in all aspects of air cooled VWs. (other vehicle experience would be a bonus)

The position will be part time to start with, hours to suit both sides, we cover everything from changing spark plugs to building full race cars (VW and non VW) with some non vehicle related fabrication thrown in when the yocals require it. :)

Attitude is far more important than qualifications and training will be given on the job where necassery.

Would prefer someone interested in racing as could involve working on our own race vehicles and crewing at race meets.

I would imagine it's a good 2 - 2 1/2 hours from Manchester to here, bit far to commute. :)

Wow i'd love a job like this! Unfortunately i only have limited knowledge of cars at the mo but im looking at getting a qualification in vehicle maintenance. Any advice? I was looking at apprenticeships but im 26 and most places wont take anyone over 24 :incheek:

I owned a beetle for a few years so had to learn pretty quick how to fix a few thing and me current rocco is keeping me on my toes too! there is always something to fix! Hopefully one day i will have enough knowledge to whip out the old 8v engine and whack in the 16v it deserves!

I need someone with experience really, already got one guy here being trained, need someone who can get on with the basics at least without too much supervision. :)

The more time i have to spend training/supervising staff the longer it'll be before you get your big beasty back! ;)
