If you have a vehicle and are keen on it's upkeep, maintenance, performance and/or upgrades that would help us understand your interest in the Automotive Industry.


You will need to be able to follow instructions well and execute your work to a very high standard. Our reputation has been built on attention-to-detail and customer service to match, so you need to excel in these areas.


You need to be able to organise your time well and make sure you don't miss pre-planned opportunities to capture video content 'as it happens' in the workshop.
