Service Engineer Opportunities and Career Prospects

Service Engineers are the backbone of our industry and we are always looking to recruit, whether you are recently qualified, employed as an engineer in a similar industry (automotive, aeronautic etc) or possibly looking for a change of job direction we’d like to hear from you.

A key player within our business and a highly valued employee we need you.

Whatever your level of qualification, there is an opportunity for you to join our dealer service teams today.

If you are a qualified service mechanic, with some extra training on CLAAS products – provided by CLAAS, you have the opportunity to become a Master Mechanic or a Master Technician, depending on your level of experience.

Take a look at your options below.  

Entry Level: Apprentice Technician

Will Harvey. Apprentice Technician.

Why not enquire about our 4 year in-house apprenticeship programme to become a fully qualified Service Engineer.

Equivalent LTA Level 2: Service Engineer

To become a Service Engineer you will either complete the CLAAS Apprenticeship Scheme, or come to us from college or another employer. We are also very keen to hear from experienced Engineers who would like to work with us.

You will work within one of our workshops, becoming a key part of the team. As first line support to our customers, you will build up good relationships with customers and our After Sales team. Part of your role will include continuous development by attending training courses at the CLAAS Academy. Progression can be made to Master Mechanic. 

Equivalent to LTA Level 3: Master Mechanic

To become a Master Mechanic a pathway of set courses has to be successfully completed, each of them specialising on one of our key products – be it combines, balers, tractors, telehandlers or forage harvester.  Once you have been awarded Master Mechanic status you will gain access to specific update / upgrade courses to keep your product knowledge up to date.

Equivalent to LTA Level 4: Master Technician

To progress from Master Mechanic to Master Technician, you will have to successfully complete an assessment to demonstrate your competence on all CLAAS products. This entails a theoretical test, a practical test covering advanced fault finding as well as an evaluation on working methods.

To retain Master Technician status the completion of annual update / upgrade courses is required to keep the product knowledge up to date.

Service Manager

Our Service Managers do not necessarily need to be qualified to Master Mechanic or a Master Technician status, this opportunity is based on individual merit and suitability for the role.

As Service Manager you head a full team of qualified service engineers and may also act as a mentor for the Apprentices.  The normal route to this level is from Master Technician, however this is not always the case and past experience and potential management skills are fully taken into account for this role.
