About the job

We are currently seeking a Mechanic for our Boels Rental London Beckton depot! One day you could be carrying out servicing and routine inspections within the workshop and the next day you could be working on site or at a customer’s premises. No two days are the same. Sounds good, right? Then this vacancy could be a match for you!


Boels Pit Stop

Are you taking care of Boels Rental in London Beckton? As our Mechanic, you will be kept busy servicing, maintaining and repairing light and medium machinery and plant equipment.

After your repair task is completed, you’ll then get busy using electronic equipment to check, and test that machinery, so that it is certified safe and fit to be hired out to our customers in London.

Some of the machinery that you could get the chance to work on is engines, transmission systems, hydraulics, electronics, pneumatic, and parts of plant chassis/frames, such as tracks, wheels and booms. You will have the chance to service and repair anything from generators, compressors and concrete mixers to compacting machines, (road rollers/plates), powered hand tools and disc cutters. You’ll never get bored, that’s for sure!

With your acute awareness of H&S compliance, you will carefully carry out safety inspections and checks, keeping comprehensive records of the work. As an experienced mechanical fitter, safety and quality will, of course, come naturally to you anyway.

Your working hours will be Monday to Friday, 0730hrs to 1700hrs.
