Experienced Groundscare Engineers Required - Ashford and Reading Branches

We are currently looking for two good mechanical engineers, one to work from our busy workshops in Ashford and the other vacancy is at our Reading depot.  The work is varied and interesting but must be carried out right first time and often within tight time frames. A service vehicle will be provided along with factory training from our key franchises, however, an in-depth knowledge of engines, transmissions and hydraulics is required.

Apprentice Service Engineer (Groundcare) Reading Branch

As a Groundcare Service Apprentice, you will be joining an experienced team of Field Service Engineers who will pass their knowledge onto the next generation.  The work is extremely varied and will see you working on Kubota's range of Compact tractors and ride on mowers - the kind that are used by Golf Courses, Councils, Private Estates and Sports Grounds.  Some of this takes place within our workshops, but much is out on site where you begin with the basics of servicing before moving onto repairs, diagnostics and fault finding.

The apprenticeship is run in conjunction with Kubota, with block release at college and then you will spend time with us to develop what you have learnt during your time away.

At college, you will cover mechanical principles, engines, hydraulic systems, transmissions and electrics - in fact everything you need to build a sound engineering foundation.

On the assumption that you pass the apprenticeship, you will be well on the way to getting a service van of your own, and the beginnings of what should be the start of a very long and rewarding career.  If you would like to register your interest in this apprenticeship, please email

About you… 

A pass at GCSE Maths and English is an absolute minimum but the successful candidate will also need to demonstrate an eye for detail, have a keen interest in machinery and engines, a personality that will allow you to deal with customers on the phone and face to face, and finally, willing to apply themselves with commitment and dedication to whatever task is give to them.  If you would like to register your interest in this apprenticeship, please email

This Service Administrator role responsibilities will include:

  • Processing and allocating warranty credit notes
  • Entering service reports onto the Agco system
  • Typing warranty stories onto claims
  • Entering time sheets
  • Overseeing Customer Satisfaction Surveys

This is an excellent opportunity for a candidate who has worked in an administration capacity for a car dealership, garage or service department. You will need to be an excellent communicator, be able to work well with the team of engineers, have a very good eye for detail and be very competent with typing, data entry and spreadsheets.  A technical background would be useful but its more important that you have strong administration skills.
