CFTS searches for assistant technical manager

15 March 2012

When an organisation has been set up specifically to enforce high quality standards, you can be sure that recruitment of its staff will be a rigorous process.

Consolidated Fork Truck Services is currently seeking an assistant technical manager who can meet its very demanding criteria.

The new post has become necessary because of rapid growth in CFTS membership and activity in the ten years since its 2002 launch. To date, more than 400 companies have been accredited to deliver CFTS Thorough Examinations – and the number has continued to rise, despite the recession.

Working with CFTS technical manager Chas Day, the duties of the successful applicant will include assessing accredited companies and providing specialist advice on all matters relating to Thorough Examination of fork lift trucks.

CFTS Chairman Simon Emery says: "We’re looking for another very special person. As well as having the necessary qualifications, knowledge and experience to be able to advise with authority on this highly complex subject, we need someone who can relate well to company staff at every level. Our checklist for the successful candidate will be as comprehensive as the CFTS code of practice."

The assistant technical manager will hold specific responsibility for the Midlands, the North of England and Scotland.
