The role would suit a bright, enthusiastic individual, who has excellent communication skills, works well with IT systems and possess a very good eye for detail.

Groundcare Service Engineer - Specialising in 2-Stroke Machinery - Reading Depot

As well as having great products to sell, much of our success can be attributed to the outstanding aftersales support that our workshops are able to provide and we are now looking for an additional workshop engineer to join the Groundcare team.  This particular position is centred around the smaller hand-held machinery such as walk behind mowers, hedge cutters, chainsaws and brush cutters.  These 2-stroke machines need a particular eye for detail to ensure that faults are swiftly detected and repaired…it’s a real art and so whilst advanced service training from Stihl and Husqvarna will be provided, you must have a passion for this type of work.

About you… The ideal candidate will be a good all-round engineer who enjoys working as part of a team and can also take personal responsibility the quality of their work.  Good communication skills are also essential as it’s the conversations with your Service manager, the Parts department and the customers, that allow work to flow smoothly through the department.

Construction Engineer - Wallingford Depot

We are currently looking for an engineer to work on a variety of Construction products.  You would be joining a very knowledgeable team with a good mix of age and experience and whilst the work is technically challenging, we look to provide a well-structured training programme that works in conjunction with Kubota UK.  Much of the repair and service work is carried out on-site and so a fully expensed vehicle will be provided.  The mainly mobile role means that every day is different but you still retain the support of the base at Wallingford.  The majority of our work tends to be with plant hire companies, contractors and councils.

You will be joining very knowledgeable and friendly teams and, as you would expect, we have a very well-structured training programme that works in conjunction with the manufacturer. The work is technically challenging, and you will be working on some of the most advanced machinery in the market drawing heavily on your knowledge of diesel engines, transmissions, hydraulics and electrics.

Agricultural / Groundcare Service Engineer - Bristol

We require an additional Agricultural / Groundcare Service Engineer to join our Workshops in Bristol.

Full product training will be provided but we are looking to work with someone who already has a very solid foundation, ideally possessing an extensive knowledge of diesel engines, transmissions, electrics and hydraulics. Many of these skills will be interchangeable from related industries, but previous experience with Agricultural, Construction or Groundcare machinery would be ideal. It’s also important that you are comfortable in front of the customer as you’ll be speaking to many of them about the service, repair, diagnostic or warranty work that you have undertaken and ensuring they are happy with the job before moving on to the next.

Apprentice Service Engineer (Groundcare) Reading Branch....for 2019

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
