Technicians and MOT Testers

Where Technicians and MOT Testers are hands-on.

Whether you’re new to the industry or fully qualified, you’ll find the technician role at Halfords Autocentre to be fast paced and full of variety.

Here, you’ll get to work on a whole range of vehicles, performing the entire range of repairs and servicing. And while you’re looking after our customers, we’ll be looking after you: helping you to keep up with the latest technology across the market, whether that’s hybrid and electric vehicles or any other innovations that are hitting the road.

You’ll also find lots of opportunity to progress with our award-winning technical training programme. Our Technician Grading scheme offers the opportunity to learn new skills, increase your earnings and look ahead to promotion – we’re always looking for new Autocentre Managers and Regional Managers by growing our own.

If you want to get your MOT Tester’s licence, we’ll support you with that too.

If you’re flexible, can work on all vehicle types, juggle a number of jobs and keep our customers more than happy, you’ll love working as part of our can-do team.
