Remit are recruiting on behalf of Windsor Wallasey who are looking for an apprentice Body Repair Technician to join their busy and exciting bodyshop.
Body Repair Technicians (Panel beaters) repair and replace vehicle bodywork which has either been damaged in a collision or deliberately damaged.

As an apprentice you will learn how to repair, and sometimes replace, damaged bodywork using specialist techniques with traditional tools and the latest equipment.
• Assessing a vehicle to establish the extent of damage
• Based on the initial assessment, deciding whether to repair or replace bodywork
• Removing damaged panels
• Refitting new/repaired panels
• Repairing damaged bodywork using traditional dolly and hammer or more modern techniques
• Repairing small dents, holes or corroded areas using a compound filler

A certain amount of administration and customer interaction is also required:
• Keeping a record of work carried out and time taken
• Liaising with the customer or insurance company
• Providing quotations and estimations

As part of the service a bodyshop offers, you may also carry out valeting, to ensure the vehicles look as good as new.
• Wash down the outside of the car to remove dirt and mud
• Polish the windows, wheels, door handles and mirrors

Whilst the vast majority of work is accident-related, panel beaters also carry out cosmetic work on behalf of owners keen to give their beloved cars the motoring equivalent of a face lift!

INDAUTO
The job involves numerous activities and panel beaters will need to be comfortable with a wide range of vehicles. As a panel beater, you will often be working as part of a team, so good communication and being able to follow instructions would be good skills to have.
No previous automotive qualifications are required, and we will support and help develop your English, Maths and ICT
An Apprenticeship is a work-based training programme, so as well as working and being trained in the bodyshop, you will also attend Remit’s Academy based near Pride Park in Derby, on a 5-day block release 4 times over the 18-month apprenticeship. You will also be assigned an Apprentice Development Coach who will visit you in the workplace, every 4-6 weeks, as part of our commitment to your development and to ensure you succeed. • VRQ & VCQ level 2 certificates in Vehicle Body • Functional Skills in English, Maths & ICT (if required) N.B All accommodation, food and travel costs are met by the Employer
Commitment and enthusiasm are a must and a passion for motor vehicles and physical work would be an advantage
If you’re looking for a motor industry apprenticeship which could lead not just to a job but a long-term career with opportunities for promotion and progression, then this could be for you
