Carpentry Assistant Apprenticeship
At Miniature Manors we design and build beautifully bespoke garden rooms. Our structures are hand crafted in our customers' gardens and are used as offices, gyms, bedrooms and even salons.
We are a young team with an ambition to provide the best quality carpentry. Most of our work takes places in Sussex. We offer a range of designs so no two working days are ever the same.
The Carpentry Assistant will be working alongside our team to understand how to build our garden rooms from the ground up. They will learn how to build a timber framed structure, experience how to fit doors and windows and learn how to make adequate groundworks.
During the role, the applicant will get to work alongside a number of trades including plasterers, plumbers, electricians and landscapers. As a result the applicant will learn how carpentry coincides with other trades.
Other day to day duties including accepting deliveries, garden clearance, cleaning our sites at the end of each day and collecting materials from local suppliers. These jobs are carried out by all of our team, no matter what their experience.
