Due to significant growth, we are recruiting now for vehicle technicians to join as a Roadside Mechanic Nights.

This role is not like working in a garage, where you’ll complete job after job without ever interacting with customers or experiencing the satisfaction of a job well done.

Instead, you’ll be out there at the Roadside or members’ homes through the night, dealing directly with breakdowns, providing technical support and delivering the type of exceptional service that leaves a smile on our customers’ faces.

As part of this role, you’ll also come across a diverse range of vehicle-related breakdowns and technical issues, with our goal being for Night Flex Patrols to fix at least four out of five cars as the roadside. So, you’ll need core mechanical and diagnostic skills that can be deployed efficiently and in real-time, as you strike the balance between completing quick and sustainable repairs.

Make no mistake; you’ll be the face of the RAC and someone who must exude reliability and calmness at all times. This is particularly important as a Night Flex Patrol, as customers often need to be reassured by our #OrangeHeroes when they break down in the wee small hours.


What Can you Expect from Us?

OK, so what can you expect from us? Here’s a breakdown of precisely what we’re offering:

  • A highly competitive basic salary with a great opportunity to earn more. Our colleagues are earning £35,000-£48,000. You could also develop your career even further into different areas of our growing Business.
  • An RAC Service Patrol van for work, fitted with a fully comprehensive & advanced RAC tool kit
  • Not only will you have a comprehensive induction, but you’ll also have access to all the latest vehicle technology, along with support from technical experts based in our head office.
  • 28 days annual leave which must be used outside of the designated school holidays and bank holiday periods.
  • You’ll be rewarded with additional benefits including pension, life cover, breakdown cover for you and your household and access to a comprehensive Flexible Benefits Scheme (which you can tailor to suit your lifestyle).
Skills, Knowledge and qualifications


What Will we Need from You?

Ultimately, we’re looking for someone who has experience working as a car and light vehicle mechanic. You’ll also need a full driving license and a Level 2 light vehicle maintenance qualification as a minimum.

As a Night Flex Patrol, we’ll also require you to work largely unsociable hours, during the early hours and at weekends and Bank Holidays. You may also be asked to work alternative shifts at times depending on the circumstances, while there’s often an opportunity to work overtime!

This role may also require you to work in different areas of the country, while there’s also the possibility of overnights stays in some instances.
