I am a mechanic with years of experience, mot tester and currently work for range rover. My qualifications and experience mainly lie with lightweight vehicles, vans and 4wd. Have seen loads and loads of diesel and heavy goods mechanic vacancies, some are fifo jobs. Just wondered if anyone knew if the companies that require diesel mechanics (especially in mining areas) would take on someone like myself or are they really strict about sticking to diesel qualified mechanics only? There seems to be a lot of vacancies for regular mechanics as well so I know I shouldn't have a problem with getting a job at a garage but am thinking about whether I could go in a slightly different direction with my job in oz, would ultimately like to get into the mines but not sure how possible this is but seems to be more vacancies for diesel mechanics in this sort of area. Just wondered if anyone had any first hand experience in this or any advice or knowledge you could pass on would be great!
