Congratulations to our fantastic contractor, Matt, who was recognised as Autotech Recruit’s Star Contractor of the Month for September 2018!
Matt is part of our Manufacturer Led Programme and was the first of our contract vehicle technicians to pass Level 3 Mechanical Diagnostic Technician training with Volvo. He is extremely valued by our clients and has been requested back to every Volvo site he has worked at. After his recent assignment in Wales, we received a lot of praise for his knowledge and professionalism from the client.
Matt, on behalf of the entire Autotech Recruit team thank you for your excellent work ethic, professional attitude and dedication to this profession and the industry. We couldn’t do it without contract vehicle technicians like you!
Matt receives a Certificate of Recognition and £100 worth of Love2Shop vouchers.
We asked him to share a few thoughts about being a vehicle technician and working with Autotech Recruit…
What made you become a technician?
I was always interested in how mechanical things worked and when I finished my engineering NVQ there were no jobs, so I took up an apprenticeship at a little village garage.
What is your favourite make of car and why?
I have to say that I have always liked Volvos, even before working on them daily. There is just something about how solid and safe they are made.
What is the best car you have ever got to fix?
Aston Martin DB5. I used to look after one that an eccentric old man used to use as a daily driver.
What is the best thing about being a technician?
It can be a challenging trade at times, which I really enjoy. I love it at the moment because the way vehicles are developing means that most days you learn something new.
If you weren’t a technician, what would you be?
Alaskan bush pilot, just for the views alone, I wouldn’t require wages.
What 3 words sum up your work with Autotech Recruit?
Fun, different and rewarding.
What is your perfect Sunday?
Walking along the seafront with my partner, photographing the world going about its business. Then enjoying a lovely Sunday roast and a beer, then spend the evening editing my photos.
