Job Description

A successful subcontractor building within Wembley Park is currently recruiting for two Dry Lining Apprentices.

The role and responsibilities:

 

As a dry liner, your work will involve a ‘fixing’ stage, followed by a ‘finishing’ stage.

 

At the ‘fixing’ stage, you will:

  • Measure and cut plasterboard to the right sizes and angles
  • Fix the panels to timber or metal frames (or ceiling joists) using special studs
  • Cut panels to fit around doorways and create openings for windows

 

You will then ‘finish’ the walls by:

  • Sealing joints using filler or adhesive
  • Taping over the seal either by hand or with a taping machine
  • Applying a thin layer of plaster over the tape (skimming)
  • Sanding down the area ready for painting and decorating
  • Dry lining methods are used to hide wiring or pipes, improve a room’s acoustics, and provide a cavity space for insulation or to smooth out uneven walls during renovation work. This role could be combined with traditional plastering or other types of work, for example sectioning off areas in open-plan offices

 

Skills and experience:

 

  • Practical ability and awareness of working safely
  • Self-motivation and desire to learn
  • Good co-ordination skills and a methodical approach
  • Is always looking to improve
  • Enjoys being a team player

Closing date: 26th April 2019
