About us:

Established in 1986, The Vella Group is one of the largest independent repair groups in the UK. The company remains founder 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.

The Vella Group is continuing to expand its footprint across the country, gaining three new sites in the last five years, with our ninth site, Manchester due to open early November.

The Role:

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.

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.

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.
