Calling all ‘gun’ installers…

by Ellen Wundersitz, February 2021

About you.

The position of senior installer is critical to our expanding business. You will be the person who ensures all our thoughtful design and painstaking craft back at the factory is delivered and installed with care and creativity to the ultimate satisfaction of clients with very high expectations. Therefore, the person we are looking for must have experience in:

•    quality cabinetmaking on the tools;
•    highly detailed, one-of-a-kind joinery projects; and
•    several years of residential installations (this is absolutely essential).

You will also require:

•    a driver’s licence;
•    your own tools;
•    demonstrated leadership skills or potential;
•    good communication skills;
•    a personable character;
•    self-motivation.

Based at our workshop in Strathalbyn, you will work very closely with the workshop team to understand the intricacies of each bespoke kitchen construction project and then lead our talented team to install it with meticulous care and attention. As each installation can bring its own unique and unexpected problems, it will be up to you to solve the problems without fluster under the pressure of a deadline and the nervous eye of expectant owners. You will also act as a mentor to our younger team members, passing on not only your experience but a calming and reassuring influence. Think of yourself as a cross between MacGyver, Obi-Wan Kenobi and a UN peace negotiator.

If you’re not that into detail, near enough is good enough and people annoy you, this probably isn’t the job for you. However, if you truly take pride in a job well done, love playing in a happy team and you prefer country air to Light Square, call us right now.
