The Vella Group, previously known as The Karl Vella Group, is currently in the early stages of a complete rebrand. Every week, for the last thirty years, we have repaired hundreds of damaged vehicles to the industry's highest safety standards. We are proud to work with some of the largest insurers and networks in the country.

Being independent, financially stable and self-sufficient, allows us to work with only those customers and suppliers who we feel share our passion for customer service, quality, and efficiency. This means we are nimble enough to react more quickly than some of our competitors to changes in the market and remain up to date with the required equipment and technology to repair today's cars.

The group invests heavily in ongoing training for all our staff. Training is something that's at the heart of the company. Our founder Karl Vella's personal commitment to the training and the development of young people was recognised when he was awarded an MBE in the 2006 Queen's Birthday Honours List.

Our business is built on a foundation of recruiting and retaining employees who have the talent and attitude to thrive in this high-volume industry and rewarding them fairly for their contribution to our shared goals.

The company remains family-owned, with a team of experienced staff and management. This mix of professional and family values helps us deliver a quality, forward-thinking service, whilst not losing the personal touch.


Excellent holiday entitlement including Bank Holidays.

Pension Scheme & Death in Service insurance.

The Vella Group Reward Scheme, 'Above and Beyond', will give you access to hundreds of exclusive perks from cheap cinema tickets and discounts to major retailers and restaurants.

The opportunity to join a salary sacrifice scheme which gives access to child care vouchers or a workplace nursery benefit.


As a Panel Technician at The Vella Group we want all our staff to take pride in the quality of their work. We are uncompromising on customer safety; therefore, all our repairs are to manufacturer and industry standards. Despite not being a customer-facing role, all our staff are focused on delivering what's important to each individual customer.

Panel Technicians are specialised in replacing or repairing damaged panels, whether this requires dents and scratches to be repaired like new, or the replacement of a new panel, ability and skill will be required. Experience of welding and panel bonding, preferably supported by the relevant qualifications, are a key requirement for the role. The ability to use pulling and measuring systems, plus basic diagnostic equipment is also of importance.

Working closely in partnership with our Vehicle Assessors, Panel Technicians will assist on making decisions on the appropriate method of repair. As a family business we pride ourselves on being a close-knit team, and a culture of sharing knowledge of best practice with each other.

We encourage applications from everyone who wants to help us achieve The Vella Group's purpose and values.
