Working at Specialist Commercial Joinery
Our work is always bespoke, high class and constantly varied, any potential newcomer would need to be conversant and enthusiastic about working in an environment that incorporates veneers, hardwoods, solid surfaces, laminates, metalwork, upholstery and glass – all of which is part of working in specialist joinery. This would need to be coupled with a full understanding of CAD setting-out drawings.
With having a number of different dovetailing departments, such as machining, veneering, spray/finishers as well as solid surfaces and bench joinery, it’s essential that each area of the business works seamlessly with the other to achieve a quality service end-product.
Specialist Commercial Joinery do not specifically employ dedicated ‘fixers’, even though some of our joinery is manufactured on a supply and install basis. The reason is because we believe that to ensure the best quality results for our clients and for ourselves, is for the team who have built it go out to install it! Our joiners enjoy the change in environment as they take selected projects out and carry out the installation themselves. This process underpins the individuals ownership of each project, all the way through the build process and results in a high quality end-product with zero snagging!
Here at Specialist Commercial Joinery Ltd, we are always looking to employ high quality, calibre staff and while we are lucky to have an incredibly low staff turnover, with many of our current team working for us for many years, we are always on the lookout for that special person to join our company.
We have a number of departments including;
- BENCH JOINERS
- SPRAY FINISHERS
- SOLID SURFACE JOINERS
Specialist Commercial Joinery is always interested to hear from people who have an expertise in any of these fields.
Apprenticeships are offered to suitable candidates, with a scaled pay structure, sponsored accredited college, company uniform & a clearly defined benchmarked training schedule.
Our goal is to train apprentices up to the standard and quality we require of all our bench joiners and to offer a long and rewarding career with us that could ultimately lead to progress through the company.
If you wish to be considered for an apprenticeship with us and have as a minimum:
- GCSE Maths Level 4
