An exciting opportunity has arisen for two mechanics to join the refurb department of Gilder Hire. You will be based at our new purpose built workshop in Teddington, Tewkesbury. We are part of the William Gilder Group who, along with the hire services, run a large fleet of HGV's, run a couple of workshops, a truck stop, a farm shop, a cafe and more.
Our Shunter tug hire fleet has grown from a couple of tugs to the largest independent fleet in the country with over 150 units on hire. The growth of the business is down to our outstanding response time and ability to service some of the highest profile hauliers in the country.
2022 saw us move into a brand new workshop designed to make your lives easier and enable us to continue to offer exceptional service to our customers. Due to our customer growth, we need to also grow our team and this is where you come in.
