Interior Joinery - General Joiner

Joiners who do internal projects and general joinery spend most of their time in our workshop and some of their time away from the workshop installing what has been made. This means dealing with instructions and drawings issued within the workshop but also dealing face-to-face with clients, respecting their needs and ensuring a quality job is installed once you’ve made it.

It is a unique opportunity to not only make from scratch new custom made joinery in Devon, but to work on special projects such as kitchens, bookcases, built-ins and furniture. It requires taking full ownership of the process and being responsible for high standards, maintaining a clean and oraganised workplace, bringing in other members of the team to assist on the project as required.

When you join, you will be shown what is expected, our way, to ensure that quality is delivered for our clients. Once settled in then it’s up to you to take ownership. There will be times where workflow and jobs vary and you will be expected to complete any other tasks that relate to GS Haydon & Son.
