Full job description

Job Title: Carpenter/Laborer

The German Carpentry Ltd works in the field of high end, residential, prefabricated German eco homes, the design and manufacture of bespoke green oak frames and the restoration of old oak frames. Several projects we have been involved in have been on Grand Designs and other TV programs.

We only work with natural materials and our emphasis is on ecological timber construction with the aim to create healthy and sustainable homes. We are currently looking for experienced carpenters/joiners or less experienced construction workers if motivation and willingness to learn new skills is shown.

We carry out a wide range of tasks, from erecting prefabricated buildings with the help of cranes to tiling roofs, installing metal guttering, plasterboarding, installation of windows and doors, cutting and erecting oak frames etc. It is crucial that applicants show interest and willingness to learn and get involved in all these aspects. It is not a repetitive job and very different to standard UK site work.

We will provide training and guidance but need applicants to be open to new ways of doing things and be motivated to progress and learn new skills!

Our jobs are UK wide, very often in the London area but could be anywhere from Scotland to Cornwall. Our current job is in North London, next job is on Guernsey so a lot of travelling is involved and working away from home for up to 10 days at a time isn't unusual. The applicant can start work 1st of July in North London but we'll be on Guernsey from the 19th of July.

Applicants must be:

· Able to work away from home.

· Open minded, enthusiastic and willing to learn new skills and be able to adapt to a most likely very different working environment.

· Able to work in a team.

· Able to work long days, usually start at 7am and finish at 6 pm,

· Able to work weekends (weekend work is usually available if wanted and sometimes required).

Applicants must be very sure that this job will suit their personal life before committing to employment as flexibility is an absolute must! We are looking for a long term employee, so this must be at least a consideration if applying for a position with us.

If you are not put off by any of the above, then we are looking forward to hearing from you.
