 ·       Competitive salary

Farol Ltd is an extremely successful family owned business. Established in 1976 and now employing over 250 people across our 6 depots, we are the market leaders in agriculture, groundcare and homeowner products, holding the market leading John Deere franchise along with many other brands.

We also operate a Tyres business, which specialises in agricultural tyre supply and repair whilst also covering car, van, 4x4, construction and commercial HGV tyre supply and repair. We offer 24 hr callout and have 18 fitting vehicles covering a large proportion of mainland UK.

We currently have vacancies for Mobile Tyre Fitters at both our Hinckley and Thame depots (though these are mobile positions so you will spend most of the time attending repairs and breakdowns away from the depot).

Previous tyre fitting experience of some kind is essential, and having experience in Agricultural, Construction and Truck tyre fitting would be an advantage. However, this is not essential as full training will be given. What it essential is someone who is self motivated, dedicated and reliable and able to work with minimal supervision out on the road, visiting our customers on their premises and elsewhere.

A full UK driving licence is essential!

We are currently looking for an enthusiastic individual to join our Hinckley depot as Trainee Showroom Sales Assistant.

The role will also involve moving stock from the yard to the showroom, delivering sold machinery to our customer's premises and taking machinery to prospective customer's premises for demonstrations, therefore a driving license is essential (and a trailer license would be even better!)

The ideal candidate will have some level of retail sales experience and keen to pursue a career in this field. Due to the nature of the products you will be selling, a degree of familiarity with the garden machinery industry/the products you will be selling (i.e. John Deere and Stihl homeowner mowing/garden & groundscare maintenance machinery) would be an advantage. However, full training will be provided.

Hours of work are 8am - 5/5.30pm Monday to Fridays with Saturday mornings on a rota basis. A very competitive salary and commission scheme is on offer for the right candidate.
