Apprenticeship Vacancy – Warehouse Operative Level 2 leading to Diploma level training in Architectural Ironmongery

March 26, 2015 by · Comments Off on Apprenticeship Vacancy – Warehouse Operative Level 2 leading to Diploma level training in Architectural Ironmongery 

An opportunity exists for a young person to join our growing company for a 1 year apprenticeship in Warehousing. The successful candidate will be then put through a 3 year training scheme in Architectural Ironmongery leading to a Diploma Qualification. This is a great chance to learn a job from the “bottom up”, so we are looking for a candidate with real ambition combined with good basic skills and the desire to work hard and succeed in many roles. Initially working in the warehouse on order picking, packing, stock control, receiving goods while training one day a week at South Devon College, the apprentice will be expected to gain on the job product & system knowledge towards staffing the trade counter, then dealing with customers on the telephone and via the website. Once all training is completed, the qualified Architectural Ironmonger will be required to represent the company with architects, contractors and end users such as schools and hospitals, so a polite and smart demeanour combined with keen intelligence and attention to detail is vital. Currently we are located in Newton Abbot, but are moving to larger premises at Broadmeadow Industrial Estate in Teignmouth next quarter.

There is a large industry in the UK devoted to Architectural Ironmongery – no building project can be completed without door locks, latches, hinges, handles etc. There are many British Standards (regulations) applied to the industry, as well as technical expertise and specialist knowledge and experience of these can result in an unusual and highly desirable occupation.

Apply to Helen Butland, Doorstuff Ltd, 7 Venture Court, Bradley Lane, Newton Abbot, TQ12 1NB
Closing date: 8th April 2015

Tenacity pitches to Buzzfeed

Doorstuff enjoyed The Apprentice on BBC1  last night – especially when we noticed the sliding gear in the offices of Buzzfeed in Central London was a 3 metre Projeto 150G with optional glass wall brackets.  Lord Sugar’s loosing team Tenacity are pictured here beating a hasty retreat from their cringe-worthy “Fat Daddy” pitch at Buzzfeed UK HQ and the lovely frameless glass door can be seen – a very tasteful office design!  Anyway if you were wowed by Buzzfeed’s sliding gear, you can get it here, next day delivery!
