KDS Detailing are looking for new staff member

KDS KELTEC - NOW HIRING

KDS Keltec is looking for one (or possibly two) hard-working, dedicated, enthusiastic paintwork or detailing specialists to join Kelly Harris and his team.


YOU
Successful applicants will have extensive experience in automotive paintwork, detailing or valeting.
Additional experience in client-facing roles and with digital Customer relationship management systems would be ideal.

You must be prepared to listen, to learn, and to demonstrate what you've learnt. You will be comfortable with working hard to meet deadlines, staying late where necessary and without ever cutting corners. You will need to work well within a team, and be able to manage your time effectively within that team, collaborating with your colleagues to help ensure that everybody works efficiently. You must be dependable and reliable, and above all you have to show that you are driven by achieving excellence - not your weekly payslip. This is not the role for someone who doesn't love what they do.

THE ROLE
Your exact role will initially depend on your current skill set, and it will grow as you gradually take on more and more responsibilities. We paint, detail and valet several cars every week and all our staff are multi-skilled. This is not a role for a novice. When you join KDS, you will be joining one of the world's most respected and professional automotive care companies. This is a demanding role, as our clients expect the highest standards of workmanship and customer service. You will be expected to meet those standards; on-the-job training will be provided to help you, but only of 'advanced' level techniques.

Remuneration will be in line with industry standards, and matched to your experience.
Working hours are 9am – 6pm, Monday – Friday.
9am-4pm Saturdays


ABOUT US
KDS Keltec is a top-tier automotive care specialist led by Kelly Harris, best known for our stunning paint jobs and seemingly miraculous detailing work. Our clients have us look after anything from Escort Cosworths and Corsa VXR's to Ferrari Enzos and Bugatti Veyrons, and we achieve those results through a combination of scientific approaches, a dedication to learning, and sheer hard work. The workshop is in Gillingham, Kent however we may occasionally require you to travel with us to shows and exhibitions where you will represent KDS Keltec with the team. Gillingham train station is a few minutes walk away, and excellent road links to the A2 and M2.


TO APPLY
Please send your CV, with a cover letter explaining why you are the right person for the job, to info@kdskeltec.co.uk. Or you can post it to KDS, Unit 12, Railway Street Industrial Park, Gillingham, Kent ME7 1YQ


(mods if this is wrong section or a better place on DW then please move)

I'd be applying if me and the mrs hadn't just bought a house. I know she once wanted to move down south.

I'm barely good enough to pour coffee in KDS's break room, let alone work there. Great opportunity though, and if my careerchoice was detailing instead of IT work, I'd apply in a heartbeat.

Now why does that suck ?

we valet , repair , paint , detail and even carry out mechanical and servicing repairs.

we struggle to keep up manage the customers bookings and logistics

So if you have any skills in those areas your onto a winner

so if you have been repairing / painting recently thats a bonus

No one has anything to lose by sending on a CV of all the areas they are great on and all the areas they are not so great on.

Training can be provided over a course of time , but i am after people who do have skills in some areas of our trade.

But the right person with more of the areas covered would be higher up the selection

Totally understand , i did have a long time served detailer that lives in the same area as you that travelled down for more than 6 weeks last year to help out with the back log at KDS.

He is also interested in working for me full time now , yet to speak to him properly.

I think some harden old skool detailers that are used to travelling every day to clients house's and work places dont mind travelling.

I am with you thou i would hate to commute everyday
