Body Shop Painter

Due to ongoing company success and expansion, Hippo Motor Group is recruiting for an additional team to join our state-of-the-art body shop to work a new shift pattern.

With sales increasing, we are currently selling over 800 vehicles per month and foresee this continuing to increase. To facilitate this, we are recruiting additional painters to join either our 6.30 AM – 3.00 PM or 3.00 PM-midnight, Monday-Thursday shifts in the body shop. We require individuals with previous experience in vehicle paint spraying.

A large portion of our business here at Hippo is used cars, meaning our body shop technicians conduct cosmetic repair and ensure all vehicles are in line with our standards.

Our body shop is the first in the UK to have installed the complete Symac production line and this provides an amazing and exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to be part of, as well as working in the first state-of-the-art body shop.

Scope for development is available within this role and is rewarded with a strong annual salary and overtime.
