At the RAC, the Roadside is at the very heart of our business, as our dedicated Patrols deliver an exceptional and much-needed service to members nationwide.
While we may be in unprecedented times at the moment, we’re continuing to provide this type of essential service across all divisions.
This means that it’s business as usual here at the RAC, where our Patrols are working tirelessly and helping to deliver critical workers to the frontline and keep the flow of food and medicine open.
We’re also preparing for the future and the return of normal life, and are currently conducting video interviews for people to join our Night Flex Patrols.
Successful applicants will join a bank’ of candidates that we can hire when normal life returns, creating an opportunity to work with one of the UK’s biggest roadside assistance providers in the UK.
So, do you have the skills to provide flexible support to our members when they need it the most, while adopting a collaborative approach and showcasing an ability to think outside of the box?
If so, this role could be for you!
What’s in the Role?
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 authority 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.
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.
