    All I can say is, that they have done a good job of hiding that Burger King and Cinema out here!
  2. Im guessing there at camp leatherneck which is the same camp more or less.
  3. Have you got the original link for that job m8? i'm pretty interested.

    Don't bother m8 - I found it! Thanks for the info though I am going to apply for that job.
  4. Please PM me with details of this work, A mech by trade but run B shops and worked in them foir the last 4 years, out in 9 months, need work! Yes I am an Artisan.
    What is the kit to be worked on?Where it is , is not a factor, tour experience, yes I would say so, joined in 88 and been everywhere we have had a problem since.
  5. Traz, the email address for the info on the job is at the bottom of the first post.
    Hopefully there is no eye test for the job eh? :)
  6. F**k all at Leatherneck except a small px. The garage being built at mo in Bastion in KBR will be recruiting VM's to service all UK heavy transport instead of shipping it back to UK for service. The build won't be complete till june/july 2010 so don't know what this mob is recruiting for???

    They might have it confused with KAF, all those facilities there and a few more.
  7. What does it mean by uplift money? Does that mean that you will get 70-80% of your salary in addition to the gross salary quoted?

    £30-40k sounds a bit low for this kind of work compared with the other jobs I have seen advertised.
