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.

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.

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!
