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.
