Can you fill the gap?

Team image with vacancy

A carpentry vacancy has arisen in our busy yard near Petersfield; can you fill the gap?

We are looking for an experienced carpenter, ideally with some knowledge of roofing skills, who is willing to learn the traditional art of heavy oak framing. Enthusiastic trainees also considered.

The ideal candidate will be based in our framing yard between Petersfield and Liphook, Hampshire and working on everything from traditional Oak framing to contemporary steel and timber hybrid structures, all with the same attention to detail and high level of craftsmanship, followed by time spent on site to assemble the job. As we undertake work across the whole of the UK from Cornwall to Scotland, this may mean occasional overnight stays for short periods or traveling directly to site. Typically each team of 4 will work on the frame from start to finish, allowing you to experience the full process of fabrication and the sense of achievement when admiring the completed Oak frame.

We are looking for someone with enthusiasm who shares our passion for this real craft. It is interesting and varied – from creating large house frames for individual self-build clients, smaller scale garages, out buildings and barns, to the careful restoration of historic treasures! Please take a look around our website to see for yourself the wide range of projects we have been involved with, many of which are multi-award winning examples of the highest quality structural carpentry.

We value our craftsmen highly and invest in both in-house Oak frame training and external training courses – NVQ, CSCS, PASMA and more. Standard hours are from 07:30 to 16:50, Monday to Friday.
If you think this position would suit you then please get in touch and send your CV to: rosemarie@greenoakcarpentry.co.uk. We look forward to meeting you!
