Ryder mobile maintenance van

Ryder is creating local employment opportunities within its mobile maintenance services business with a recruitment drive for technical staff in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

The nine new roles include maintenance controllers: office-based staff who either support and oversee the deployment of Ryder’s mobile maintenance technicians, or work with its vendor and dealer network.

It said two tiers of controller roles are available: T2 or T3, with the higher T3 controllers requiring a formal qualification in engineering.

T2s may have experience from on-the-job training or gained transferable skills in a similar industry.

Stuart Porter, customer operations manager, Ryder Mobile Maintenance Services, said: “We are looking for technically-minded people who have an understanding of approving, authorising and validating the type of work that is deployed to our technicians or network.

“Our mobile maintenance controllers effectively assign jobs to our mobile technicians, and approve the work that the technicians advise needs to be undertaken, while external mobile maintenance controllers work with our vendor and dealer network again to approve the work that is identified.”

Two additional vacancies also exist within the compliance and planning team.
