Tesla Bringing In-House Structural Body Repair Service To Australia

Tesla is looking to fill several body shop positions as the company prepares to launch its own comprehensive body repair service in three eastern seaboard states.

Tesla Service Centres currently perform light collision repairs on parts including bumpers, boot lids, side mirrors, wheels, and glass, while substantial body repairs are performed at a network of Tesla-approved collision centres around Australia.

On the careers page of its website, Tesla advertised more than 20 positions for roles such as customer service representatives, estimators, paint preppers, painters, parts advisors, production managers, repair managers, technicians, and vehicle detailers.

The positions are for centres in Cremorne in Victoria, Alexandria in New South Wales, and Hendra in Queensland.

“Tesla Motors is looking for [collision technicians] to work on one of the most progressive vehicle brands in the world. If you are interested in becoming a part of a world class service team supporting the latest EV technology, we are interested in hearing from you,” the company said in one listing.

The production roles include performing structural and cosmetic repairs on Tesla Model S, Model X, and Model 3 vehicles in accordance with Tesla-specific repair procedures, using Celette frame jigs.
