Job Description

 At It's Alive Automotive we buy, sell, restore, and repair classic cars.  We are a rapidly growing business founded on world class facilities, central location, proven processes, and a culture founded on personnel development and continuous improvement.  

Our body shop is currently staffed with 3+ highly skilled employees (we currently have 8 full time employees) that are proficient at metal working, body work, painting, cutting/buffing and assembling cars.  They are all great guys and a fantastic Team.  We're looking for someone to lead the overall effort of the body shop Team.   

This position is for a working-manager.  While you will be leading the Team, you will be expected to work side by side with the rest of the Team members.

Specific responsibilities include:

Ideally the individual will have direct classic car restoration, painting, body work experience combined with a strong desire and skill for leading.  Each car is like a program/project and because we may have up to 10 cars in restoration at any one time, a fully integrated plan is required.  The job is challenging as you have to orchestrate the Team and resources to achieve efficient progress.  I guarantee this position will challenge and grow the person selected.
