Master technician

A customer facing role, master technicians are tasked with diagnosing and repairing the most difficult and unusual faults that can occur with vehicles. Master technicians are also expected to manage and develop more junior colleagues, while keeping customers abreast of what’s wrong with their car and what is being done to fix it.

Electrical installation technician

An electrical installation technician fits a variety of electrical and electronic systems and accessories in motor vehicles, including sat-nav, audio and TV systems, and alarms. They also find and fix faults.

Windscreen technician

A windscreen technician is responsible for repairing or replacing windscreens on a range of vehicles including cars, trucks and trains. A technician will typically work either at the roadside or in a garage, fixing damaged windscreens or replacing them entirely.

Recovery driver

Recovery drivers are employed by breakdown companies to assist customers that have either had an accident or suffered a technical fault with their car while out on the road. A recovery driver’s job is to discover what problem the vehicle has suffered, take it to a garage where it can be fixed and arrange a method of transport to take the driver to their destination.

Diagnostic technician

A diagnostic technician deals with the inspection, maintenance, servicing and repair of vehicles. Technicians use diagnostic tools to identify the source of a problem and proceed to make the necessary adjustments and repairs.

Fast-fit technician

A fast fit technician is responsible for replacing motor vehicle components such as tyres, brakes and exhaust systems, often while the customer waits.

Motorsport technical manager

A motorsport technical manager is responsible for the mechanical set-up of racing vehicles to ensure that they deliver their optimum performance on the racetrack. The role involves implementing new technology in race cars and making minute adjustments to their specifications in order to give the car’s driver the best possible chance of winning the race.

Paint and bodywork technician

The job of a paint and bodywork technician is to repair minor bumps, scrapes and scratches on vehicles that have been damaged and repaint the affected areas to leave them looking as good as new. They may also provide customised paint jobs for clients involving a repaint of the entire car.

Parts adviser

A parts adviser is someone who sources spare parts, either for a specific car company such as Honda or Ford, or a range of models for a private garage. Their job is to identify the specific make and model of a vehicle, find a company that has the required part in stock and then sell it on to the customer.
