European Direct Service And Maintenance Are Looking For People With DIY Skills To Work On Static Mobile Homes In The South Of France.
Required repair, maintenance people with DIY skills, to work on static mobile homes in the south of France.
What We Do:Provide a Europe-wide on-site maintenance service to Tour Operators and private clients in the mobile home industry.
In the winter, Tour Operators decide whether they want to buy new mobiles, sell the ones they already own, or move existing ones to different emplacements or different campsites in Europe. Our job is: disconnecting, installing, and maintenance of these mobile homes.
This is carried out by individuals or in a team of two (teams are selected by head office). Installation and Disconnection teams are provided with a 4 x 4 vehicle and a trailer with the required tools and equipment. Maintenance and De-branding use a smaller vehicles.
Disconnection: All services are disconnected from the mobile home – plumbing, water, electricity etc, and the mobile home is towed off the emplacement with the 4 x 4. The mobiles are then either
a) Positioned on a new emplacement on the same site. Or
b) left in the car park ready for the transporters to collect.
Installation: When the transporters deliver the mobile homes to the car park on site, we tow them to and on to their emplacements with the vehicle. We then jack up the mobiles, block them, level them and install the plumbing. This means the mobile homes are now fully habitable for holidaymaker's and owners to stay in on their holidays.
OTHER WORK / CONTRACTS THAT WE DO APPART FROM
DISCONNECTION AND INSTALLATION.
Installation & repairs to Wooden Terraces, Skirting: Installation of & repairs to wooden decking and terracing (and awnings) over 200 different Campsites around Europe.
Maintenance: Warranty Repairs and Customer Call Backs: This is working for mobile home manufacturers throughout Europe covering their Warranty call back work abroad or for specific Tour Operator contracts. It includes exterior panel and roof damage repairs as well as internal warranty work (from cupboard hinge replacements to replacement floors and lino coverings).
Maintenance is the decommissioning/winterisation, commissioning (opening up and set-up) and all year round general repairs and upkeep. We provide all equipment and vehicles to complete the work.
Location of this work: This position is based in Europe full time.
You will not have a working base as such. Because we cover so many campsites all over Europe, it’s a case of moving from site to site.
Accommodation: Accommodation is provided, by us, this is a static mobile home on whichever campsite you are working on at the time. We must stress to you, that in the winter months, the weather can be very cold! The conditions can also be wet and muddy! Because the campsites are closed at this time, it is not guaranteed that water and electric will be connected to your live mobile home.
However, we do carry generators and gas bottles with us all times but this means after a days work you will not always be able to get a hot shower! If you are going to be working in situations like this for a few days, the Leeds office will authorise you to stay in a local B&B or Hotel and have a meal allowance.
Hours of Work: Working hours are flexible. A working week consists of six days, although through busy periods we may require you to work the seventh. We generally work to weekly schedules, which gives us X amount of mobiles to complete a week.
Description: When the disconnections and Installs season (WINTER) ends (May) all are assessed, if they wish to stay for the summer, we train people to become Maintenance engineers. This can include ‘Gas Training’.
Through the summer we work on maintaining the mobile homes on the campsites. This involves a call out service for emergencies (e.g. hot water heaters) and the general maintenance of the mobile homes. The summer season is a lot quieter for us compared to the Installs programme so working a seventh day is unlikely. This is also the time of the year, which is possible you could be given a specific area to cover.
