Hernshead Recruitment

About this position: 

Do you have experience of building classic vehicles? The client I am working with were built to further the legacies of the most beautiful cars in the world. They restore, enhance and create with knowledge that these vehicles have a cultural value far beyond their function. And they know that each classic vehicle, represents an uncompromised expression of the original and that electrification answers the questions to usability, reliability and sustainability which empowers their customers to enjoy the vehicles on a daily. You will support the build of multiple classic vehicles. Duties include but are not limited to full vehicle photo log and documented strip downs, and cataloguing of parts for repair, restoration or replace. From this point on, you are that car’s “owner” for the build. You will follow the vehicle’s progress through the fabrication team and body shop until its return to you to commence rebuilding. Upon completion of the build, you will handover to test and development. All vehicles are bespoke products that need close attention to detail and a level of care that classic vehicles require.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Tracking build progress closely to ensure vehicles are delivered to specification, on time and to a high quality.
  • Applying a practical approach to vehicle build management; working on vehicles with other mechanics/technicians to demonstrate the value of good work.
  • Particular attention to be paid to any work on safety critical systems, for example brakes and steering.
  • Supporting the Build Hall supervisor in building an accurate database of jobs required to take a vehicle from its arrival condition to its final build condition.
  • Develop strong working relationships within the production team.
  • Liaising with procurement to ensure required parts arrive to meet production timelines.
  • Engage with HSE standards throughout production

Experience Required:

  • Ability to read engineering drawings accurately
  • An understanding of road car engineering: Chassis, suspension, steering, braking systems, body systems etc..
  • A good understanding of high and low voltage electrical systems and their functions within a road car (not required but advantageous)
  • A good understanding of classic car body and interior structures, their assembly and nuances
