Job Details

Stratstone Harrogate is looking for a BMW Preparation Technician.

Your role

As a skilled vehicle technician, you must hold skills and knowledge to undertake both minor and major mechanical faults (including engine repairs) and return vehicles back to manufacturer specification and standards.

Depending on your skill level the role will involve:

  • Effectively and productively service and maintain customer vehicles from brake pads and tyres to oil and filter checks
  • Complete minor electrical work as and when required
  • Meet and discuss the vehicle and repairs needed with the customer when necessary
  • Mentor apprentices and support less experienced team members
  • Ability to complete a Vehicle Health Check (VHC) ensuring that the (VHC) video completion meets target and exceeds all Vehicle (VHC) KPIs

Your profile

We are welcoming applications from Technicians who are NVQ level 2/3 trained or equivalent and have experience working within a busy volume franchised dealer environment or independent garage/dealer. If you have knowledge of the BMW brand that would be fantastic but not essential.

You will require a Full UK drivers' licence and have your own tools

What will you need to succeed in the role:
  • Technical knowledge to allow you to confidently and safely carry out repairs and maintenance of customer vehicles
  • Demonstrate capability and confidence in using equipment within the workshop
  • Proven experience within a franchise dealer or independent garage working to the highest quality standards
  • Proven experience of working to productivity targets
  • Mentor & Coach apprentices and support other team members
  • NVQ level 2/3 trained with work experience in a franchised dealer or independent garage


Your hard work will be rewarded with a basic salary of £24,558 with £2,400 bonus, pension, critical illness pay, life assurance, 23 days holiday, plus bank holidays, exclusive company discounts on used car purchases, leasing deals, aftersales services and access to training courses at the BMW Training Academy.


When it comes to careers, nothing feels quite like working in BMW Group Retail. As the most forward-looking automotive brand in the world, we're dedicated to giving customers the very best experience we can. That takes a workforce who aspire to delivering the highest levels of customer service.

We look for people who understand our customers and the role that automotive mobility plays in their lives. People who get genuine satisfaction from knowing customers are inspired by our products and impressed by every aspect of the service we give them.

If you understand what makes our engines run and customers tick, we'll make sure you stay that step ahead. With training from the BMW Group Academy UK and a chance to work on cutting-edge technology, we'll help you to develop as a professional and grow your career within BMW Group Retail.
