Due to continued growth, we are recruiting for an Exhibition Stand Builder within our Peterborough based Exhibition & Custom Display Workshop.
This is a unique opportunity to join a growing exhibition and display company that continues to operate as a family run business, since its establishment in 1976. We serve businesses across the UK and overseas, transporting exhibition stands and custom displays all over the world.
This is permanent position and will suit individuals who have experience in the exhibition and print industry. The ideal candidate would have carpentry experience as well as carpet laying, low voltage electrics and graphics finishing experience.
The role will involve working within the stand building team both in the workshop and with the initial pre-build of exhibition stands as well as on-site work with stand transportation, set-up and breakdown. The team transport and install bespoke exhibition stands all over the UK, in Europe and worldwide. Weekend and evening set-up and breakdown is common place and you must be prepared to work during these periods (overtime rates apply). A candidate with a hardworking, 'can-do' attitude and resourceful approach to work is essential.
As well as building custom displays we also supply off the shelf portable products with custom printed graphics and the role will involve constructing these in the workshop, fitting graphics and repacking them for dispatch to customers.
Experience of graphic finishing would be an advantage.
The role requires the build and de-rig of exhibition stands at events and the participation in the loading and unloading of heavy exhibition stands and equipment onto vehicles is a regular part of the role. Because of the amount of travel that is required to and from events using company vehicles, a UK driving licence is essential.
An awareness of Health and Safety practices within the workplace is essential.
