Due to increasing local commissions, an opportunity has arisen for a qualified bricklayer to join a small but experienced and established local team of Garden Designers.
We are Zenscape: a local, award-winning design and construction team specialising in garden design and garden makeovers.
You are an experienced and confident bricklayer, specialising in similar work – and with at least five years’ experience. You’ll have a clean driving licence and City & Guilds Bricklaying NVQs, or equivalents. A CSCS Card is not required.
You’ll be comfortable working as a member of a small team with your own specific tasks most of the time – but willing to muck in and help out as and when required. Hours inevitably are fluid, as you’d expect – work needs to be completed to meet client deadlines – but overtime is paid for hours in excess of agreed time.
Ideally, you’ll be confident working on your own initiative – and working to tight team and client deadlines. You’ll have pride in your appearance, and you’ll be comfortable working alone or as part of a team. The role will include exterior bricklaying tasks such as preparation of foundations, retaining walls, curved walls, pillars and blockwork for block and render walls and the driving of various work vehicles.
Other landscape labouring tasks and duties could include excavating, preparing materials, loading trailers and maintaining tools and equipment. Experience in such tasks is preferred but not essential; training will be provided for the right candidate.
Zenscape prides itself in completing work to the highest possible standard, so you, too, must be passionate about your work and your work ethic. You’ll be honest, respectful and sociable, easily able to fit into a small team. The nature of the work means that you need to be physically robust.
There are fantastic opportunities for growth and accepting more responsibilities as time goes on.
The post is subject to a 24-week probationary period; work hours are typically from 7.30 onsite until 4.30, usually based around a 40-hour contract week. Client deadlines must be met – but we pay overtime for hours onsite in excess of those agreed. Salary by negotiation, depending on experience.
