  • Company :   Kream Motor Recruitment (Isca) Ltd


We are seeking a technically qualified WORKSHOP FOREMAN to join the in-house workshop of a busy new and new used caravan / motorhome dealer in Exeter.

This environment differs significantly from the standard automotive workshop.  The department focuses exclusively on the internal /external living quarters portion of motorhomes and caravans - all mechanical work pertaining to engines, gearboxes and running gear is carried out by a separate team.

Daily jobs going through the workshop will vary but could include: -

  • Panel work (internal or external) to cure issues such as dampness or localised damage.
  • Internal faults diagnosis / rectification (appliance issues, lighting, foldaway mechanisms, shower / wash basins, chemical toilets, windows etc)
  • Skylight replacements / repairs.
  • Furniture repairs / placements.
  • Accessory fitments.

Therefore, you’ll need strong competencies and demonstrable experience / qualifications in this field to enable you lead the team to delivering quality work in the timescales required.  

The role involves combining workshop control (ensuring efficiency, productivity and quality) with direct customer interaction.  Liaising with the Service Advisors and Technicians.

Occasionally, you may have to step in to support your Technicians, or complete jobs at peak times; covering sickness and holidays.

Basic salary is up to £34,000 per annum. This is a 5-day week role.
