Andy and Jason have over 40 years experience between them in bench carpentry. They both worked for the same company for a number of years before deciding to set up a business of their own.

They are specialists in Bench Carpentry and thoroughly enjoy what they do and are very keen to pass on their knowledge.

Past Apprentices

Andy and Jason have supported an apprentice before with Skills Group, so they are keen to invest their time and knowledge to support the right candidate to progress through the apprenticeship programme.

After you have completed the Level 2 qualification, there will be the opportunity to progress on to full-time employment with the employer. This will be a long term role for the right person.

Skills Required

The successful apprentice will be reliable, punctual and willing to learn and succeed in this career. You will be hardworking with good hand skills and concentration and have an eye for detail.

Personal Qualities

ARJ CRE8 are looking for a reliable, friendly, punctual and enthusiastic apprentice to take on with a good sense of humor but also a strong work ethic.
