Carpenter Oak have been the industry leaders in the design and handcrafting of timber frame buildings for over 30 years. With workshops and offices in Devon and Scotland, we have around 50 employees, with plans to expand the team over the next 12 months.

As a business, we are on a journey to Employee Ownership, which gives all of us a voice, and a stake, in our current and future success. This is a very exciting time of growth for Carpenter Oak and we have some fantastic opportunities for talented people to join the team.

This is a varied and challenging trainee role, with opportunities to learn new practical skills. You will be carrying out a wide range of tasks to ensure everything in our timber framing yard keeps operating smoothly.

A positive, can-do attitude is essential, as is a love of hard work and carrying out practical tasks. From gardening and chopping timber, to decorating and sorting the recycling, every day will be different. You will be working with a small but mighty team who are vital to the day-to-day running of our busy yard and workshops.

This is a trainee role, so you will have the opportunity to gain new skills and to learn from other experienced team members. The right candidate will also have the opportunity to undertake forklift, telehandler and chainsaw training.
