Joiner Jobs

Joinery jobs require the working of wood to create different fittings and constructions, which are then used throughout construction projects. There are two main variations of joiner, referred to as 1st and 2nd fix joinery, however titles may vary across specific positions. 1st fix joinery often refers to structural work such as building door frames and floor joists. 2nd fix joinery focusses more on the finishing work, for example fitting floorboards and skirting.

Joiner Job: Main Responsibilities

A Joiner’s day to day workload may consist of some of the following:

  • Cutting and shaping timber for the required product, such as floorboards or skirting boards.
  • Design and create doors, window frames and staircases.
  • Fitting substantial wooden structures such as door frames and portion walls.
  • Interpreting complex blueprints and plans to create high quality products.
  • Match materials to requested design specifications, ensuring communication is upheld with designers and planners.

Joiner Jobs: Conditions and Skills

Joiner job positions require candidates to have excellent attention to detail, as well as the ability to plan and organise workloads. Joiners must also have good numerical skills and must be able to work within the team environment. Often, joiners are required to work on construction sites as well as workshops, with the average working hours ranging between 39 and 45 hours per week. Joiners can expect to earn a salary in the region of £25000 to £32000.
