About the Role

We seek two passionate, experienced, and qualified Panel Beaters to join our Panel-Shop team to repair the rust and 'battle damage’ accumulated on vehicles of 30-120 years of age.

Duties include:

  • Assess repair requirements of vehicles.

  • Multi-skilled team: Our team is multi-skilled and has a passion for preserving and restoring classic and historic vehicles and knowledge sharing allows you to grow your own skill set.
  • Crafts-based environment: We work on a broad range of vehicles in a diverse, skilled, crafts-based environment.
  • Work-life balance: we offer a better work-life balance than the crash-repair industry typically can.  We offer flexible work arrangements with options of early/late starts/finishes and 9-day fortnights.
