Finding good mechanics in Jos is very hard. A while ago, our Land Rover mechanic told us that we needed a new engine. Off he went to collect a second hand engine from Lagos and he came back with one that would not fit! Now, we have little confidence in him! Good mechanics can be found but even good ones are very limited by their lack of equipment. It is not uncommon to find that the only covered space is a small shed for tools. Everything else is done in the open air – including body spraying!
Many NGOs have their home in Jos and there is a real need for a high quality motor engineer who can work on large vehicles as well as the ubiquitous Toyotas.
Our vision is to build a workshop at our new permanent site and then train local young people to UK standards. But to do that we need an experienced motor engineer who wants to serve God for perhaps five years and make a lasting contribution to life in Jos.
