If you live in, or nearby Gorton in Manchester, this might be of use to you.

We can use another pair of hands in our shop. Probably no more than a couple of days a week for now. Possibly more for the right person.

Money: The money is minimum wage or thereabouts - dependant on age and existing practical skills.

Qualifications: We are not interested in those. We are interested only to find a reliable, practical, enthusiastic and pleasant person who can do what we need to be done.

Job Description: The job is primarily stripping down old Dyson vacuum cleaners and sorting the components [after instruction] into categories: 'saleable', 'non perfect but serviceable', 'non perfect but saleable to the trade in bulk' and 'scrap'. Sorting scrap involves separating recyclables like cables, plastics, motors, etc.

You will also be cleaning parts as required with a steam cleaner. That means getting wet. If it rains, that means getting even wetter as it is mostly outdoors. Other stuff might include sweeping up, washing shop windows, washing vans, making tea, fetching sandwiches and being a general gofer.

This isn't a glamorous job description, but there is an upside that you will be learning about Dysons and we are happy to teach you stuff as you go along because we do need another technician in time. Everyone has to start somewhere. As a family business, we prefer people start at the bottom, get to know us [and we you], develop mutual trust, and work your way up.

Type of person: This is probably typically suited to a younger person, but we are open minded. The person is more important than their age.

As a small family business, operating successfully in hard times, we are a tight knit team. We seek an honest and hard working person to become a valuable member of that team.

It is essential you should possess practical skills. If you can't wire a plug, change a light fitting or repair a puncture on your bicycle, this job isn't for you. If you feel competent with tools, and are prone to take stuff to bits to fix it, then you are the right type of person.

Applications: See our 'Contact Us' page for our number, email and address. Get in touch with Claire between 10-3 any day but Wednesday or Sunday to find out more.

Hi, How old do you have to be to work at manchestervacs? I would like to join :) I have experience in repairing and stripping old dysons down from dc01 to dc14, and know how all dyson machines work and everything else :)

Long shot perhaps.....

But we also need a bookkeeper who understands VAT.

A retired bookkeeper/accountant would be ideal.

Someone who can translate our crisp boxes full of crap, website reports and e-stats, Paypal, receipts and ineligible squiggles on various bits of paper into something the accountant can make sense of.

Local to M18 a bonus.

Get in touch if you are that person!
