What traits does Fast Labour Hire look for in a skilled carpenter?
When placing a carpenter on-site we focus on the discipline that they are skilled in, such as:
- lock up and fix
We ensure the carpenter that we send has the ability to complete the task in hand.
Furthermore, we ensure carpenters come fully equipped with the right tools for the job, no framing carpenter ever framed efficiently without a framing gun.
In addition to skillsets and tools, we also focus on the carpenter themselves. We are building relationships with our staff, we look for individuals with drive, accountability, solution-minded and respectful because again, it’s no good having all the gear and no idea.
But that’s not all. There’s more.
They must have adequate maths skills, technical skills and knowledge, pay great attention to detail and have optimal physical strength.
Their listening and language skills need to be excellent in order to take in accurate information and to communicate with co-workers, engineers, project managers and clients.
They must also display a professional attitude: turning up on time, not swapping jobs, filling timesheets punctually, being able to get on with team members and taking instructions from project managers and others with higher roles.
