Coming from Education to SMART Repairer – Here’s what you need to know

Leaving education can be a pretty daunting prospect. Having to enter the job market for the first time, and compete against hundreds of other applicants, many with vastly more job experience and drastically more life experience, it can be overwhelming for many, even those with excellent qualifications. But it can also be a fantastic opportunity to enter a new job, eager to learn and demonstrate the skills you’ve spent years cultivating as part of your education.

Revive! are constantly on the lookout for applicants at any stage of their career, be it straight out of college education or with 20 years’ experience behind you. Taking on a role as a mobile SMART technician can offer a variety of benefits over being trapped in a body shop, day in, day out. For example, you have the opportunity to get face to face with customers and provide the excellent service Revive! is known for. You will also be able to experience the broad variety of jobs and damage that occur regularly including bumper scuffs, door dings and alloy wheel damage.

But there will always be areas to learn, not only about the business but about vehicle repairs as a whole. This is not saying your education missed anything, more that SMART repairs are a specialist process that won’t have been covered directly. Many of your skills will be transferable to the SMART repair side of the industry, and any areas missed can be handily taught in our dedicated training facilities at our Rugby Head office. Our specialist training staff have decades of experience both in the body shop and out on the road as mobile SMART repairers, they will be able to teach you all there is to know about Revive! and our repair processes.

One of the great advantages of working with Revive! is that we have vacancies across the country with franchisees eager for support from young, talented, and willing to learn individuals who are ready to get out on the road and repair vehicles, be it on a dealership forecourt or business fleet or even just on a retail customers driveway, you will get to grips with the entirety of our customer base.

The perfect job for a car enthusiast, you’ll get up close and personal with anything and everything on the roads today. Our customers bring us a massive cross section of the automotive industry including BMWs, Hondas, Mercedes, Fords, Nissans. We even see some of the higher end market on occasion including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches and Aston Martins, although this is a rarity.
