Painter & Decorator Jobs

Painters and decorators can work in different types of jobs such as commercial, domestic and industrial. They may work in people's home or workplaces or even work outside on large projects. A decorator needs strong practical skills and must have a keen eye for detail. They must also have creative skills to carry out certain painting and decorating jobs. 

They will normally work 39 hours, Monday to Friday, but a painter and decorator can often work overtime or at the weekends.

Painters and decorators have their own trade association which is The Painting and Decorating Association (PDA) which represents them and it helps to ensure that there are high standards within the painting and decorating industry.

What do painter and decorators do?

This role involves work that requires a lot of standing, bending, kneeling and climbing and they will likely have to travel from site to site. Painters may also have to strip wallpaper off of walls before starting and prime the surfaces before they paint. 

Training usually involves a combination of on-the-job experience and attendance at a college or a training centre. There are apprenticeship schemes available, and it is possible to do NVQs/SVQs.
