Orkney and Caithness
Are you ready to take your career up a gear? We have a new vacancy for a Fleet Engineer - Orkney and Caithness to keep our buses on the road and smiles on our customers’ faces.
We’ve recently announced a huge £ million investment in 34 new buses for Orkney so this is a very exciting time to join the business. As Fleet Engineer, you’ll be ready to roll your sleeves up for a rewarding role that doesn’t just help people get from A to B – you help communities stay connected.
Orkney is frequently voted as the best place to live in both Scotland and the UK – based on the superior quality of life with high employment levels, lowest crime rates in the country, good schools with small class sizes, strong exam results and a population amongst the happiest in the UK. Soon to add a brand new fleet of buses to that – as well as you!
With 50 vehicles across 2 depots and one out-station, you’ll have the responsibility of supporting, advising and managing a team of mechanics, fitters, technicians, cleaners and coach builders to ensure all of our buses are clean, safe and reliable on the road each day.
Whether you’re a first timer or a fanatic when it comes to bus body types, we’ll train you on everything you need to know but do ask you’ve worked in a related field such as the truck or haulage industry in an engineering setting. Bonus points if you’ve managed teams previously too, regardless of size.
We’re looking for an individual as passionate about Health & Safety as they are about people as you’ll be getting stuck in managing inventory, recruiting and training. Most of all, you’re ready to be part of the Stagecoach team to maintain (and ideally boost) our 95% reliability.
If you’re fed up dragging yourself out of bed on a Monday morning to face the same four walls, as Fleet Engineer everyday feels like Friday as we’re a multisite operation. Getting out and about is part of the daily norm with the Fleet Engineer role, but don’t worry we’ll give you a company car to help you do so.
We don’t just keep our vehicles well looked after, we keep our staff looked after too. As part of the Stagecoach team you can enjoy -
* Job security: we’ve been on the road since 1980, with around 10 million passengers relying on us each year to take them from A to B, we’re not planning on hanging up our boots anytime soon!
* Company car: a company car comes as part of the package.
* Annual Bonus: whether it’s boosting that 95% mentioned earlier, or reducing breakdowns on the road, we offer a performance based annual bonus to say thank you for going the extra mile.
* Relocation: We understand our dream candidate might not be found on our doorstep so if you fancy living and working in the stunning Scottish Highlands we can also help with relocation. This role covers our Kirkwall and Thurso depots and as a result location can be flexible.
