This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Workshop Controller to join one of the UK’s leading vehicle rental specialists in our busy site in Stockport.


Your role, as Workshop Controller, is about supporting our customers to deliver on their business promises.  Your aim; ensuring we get their vehicle back on the road safely and in quick time.


Our Stockport branch is a large, high profile site with 1000 vehicles in fleet as well as being home to one of the busiest workshops in the country.  As the lead branch in the region, it also provides valuable support to Bolton and the South Manchester and Manchester City Centre side of the M60 Motorway. It is a busy, exciting place to be and you can be sure that you will not ever be looking for something to do.

With an ever-changing workload, our modern workshop is equipped with the latest technology and manufacturer-specific diagnostic tools - it is a bustling, exciting place to be.  You have a central role to play in the smooth running of the workshop by maximising the profitability, productivity and efficiency of the workshop team.  You are also the decision-maker for the technicians on recharge and warranty opportunities too.

Key to your success is your ability to ensure the workshop produces work that complies with the highest technical and quality standards and, above all, helps us deliver on our service commitment to customers. 


About you

  • At heart, you are a qualified technician with a solid workshop background - your colleagues value your technical knowledge and understanding of jobs from routine servicing and maintenance to more complex diagnostics
  • You have a common-sense business approach - you know what makes a great workshop and how to maximise efficiencies and opportunities to produce outstanding results.
  • Above all, you are a people person - you care about those around you and understand that a one-size-fits-all approach is not always the best way to create a high-performing workshop team.
  • You get involved in every part of our business – you take pride being part of the Northgate team and are keen to help colleagues with a hands-on, can-do approach to getting things done.
  • You have a passion for customer service - you understand what is important to your customers and suppliers. If there is an issue, as Workshop Controller, you will know just how to solve it. 

As Workshop Controller, we offer:


  • A competitive starting salary with 10% OTE bonus scheme.
  • Additional employee benefits (including employee assistance, life assurance, pension, retailer discounts etc.)
  • A clear career development pathway and our commitment to supporting your professional development through in-house and industry-recognised training.
  • The opportunity to work with and service world-renowned automotive brands including Ford, Mercedes, Peugeot and Vauxhall.
