We are expanding our Engineering Team.

An excellent and rewarding job opportunity has arisen for a qualified Fitter with at least 2 years’ experience in PCV maintenance to join our Lewes Depot’s newly purpose fitted workshop.

Working requirements: Early shift working pattern 0600-1500 Monday to Friday + weekend on-call (average 1 in 4) or mid shift working pattern 1400-2300 Monday to Friday + weekend on-call (average 1 in 4)

Be part of a company where:

  • Everyone is valued as an individual (not just a number).
  • Praise and appreciation are part of our daily ethos.
  • There is a genuine open-door policy.
  • The working environment is one of consideration where everyone is encouraged to go the extra mile to be positive, caring, friendly and helpful.

At Compass, our aim is to always provide a safe, efficient, reliable and friendly service to our passengers.

Fitters are an essential part of our team as they ensure that all our vehicles are in a safe and roadworthy condition. 

The company has a strong staff team and management structure with a particular emphasis on building team spirit. We are more "informal" than some larger bus companies and like to think that our staff feel part of a large "family" within a friendly company atmosphere.

Join a company culture that is:

  • Engaging - with teams working well together cross-functionally.
  • Motivating - no day is the same and every day is an opportunity to add value.
  • Supportive and nurturing - we want our staff to do well, succeed and develop their career.

  • Ensure vehicles are maintained in accordance with DVSA best practice and to company standards.
  • Work to the highest health and safety standards.
  • Work on either an early shift working pattern (0600-1500) Monday to Friday or a late shift working pattern (1400-2300) plus weekend on-call (average 1 in 4).

Person Specification:

  • You can work safely to pre-set standards and guidelines.
  • At least 2 years’ experience in PCV maintenance with recognised qualifications i.e. NVQ Level 3 / IRTEC etc.
  • You hold a current and valid car/van licence (category B).
