Job Description

Thatcher Associates is a UK based recruitment company. 

We are working with a long standing client based in the Caribbean, specifically the beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands, which is a British overseas territory. 

Our client has a number of businesses, including a specialist garage / auto workshop which services, upgrades, and rebuilds Land Rover Defenders and Land Rover Discovery's. There are many owners of Defenders and Discoveries in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The workshop is busy and demand for the services provided by the garage is growing. 

We are supporting our client to help them secure an experienced British trained Vehicle Mechanic and think that an ex-forces Vehicle Mechanic would be an excellent fit. 

To take up the role, you'll ideally be an experienced and qualified Land Rover Technician / Mechanic (or a Mechanic who has experience on a range of vehicles including Land Rovers). You'll join a small team and undertake a range of duties including servicing, repairs, upgrades and special projects for Land Rover owners. 

The successful candidate will need to be fully conversant with a wide variety of computer diagnostic tools, software and scanners such as Autel 906BT and Launch X431 so similar. Transmission and Engine rebuild experience is important. 

This role will be offered on a two year renewable contract. Pay is tax free and un US$, at between $6,000 and $6,500 per month (£4,800-£5,200 per month). Flights will also be provided but accommodation will need to be paid for locally by the employee (the employer will help with this - in terms of recommendations and contacts - but please bear in mind that a decent two bed apartment could cost up to USD$2,000 per month).

The post is best suited to a single person but partner status is a possibility. No schooling is available locally so the role is unsuitable for anyone with accompanying children. 

Work permits are paid for by the employer. 
Holiday is three weeks plus ten days local bank holidays
Working week is five and a half days (includes a Saturday morning). Overtime is available. 

This is an excellent opportunity to experience an overseas job posting in a beautiful, safe part of the Caribbean.

To complete the work permit process, the successful candidate must undergo a medical and have a clear Police record.
