Carpenter with basic experience

Job description

If you have basic woodworking skills, you may make the cut for this job! We're hiring people to precisely cut out tiles from big plates of wood.

These tiles will be used to build high-end flight cases. Every order is different, which makes the job quite versatile. You'll operate a wall saw (wall mill) or table saw, depending on the requested dimensions. Being familiar with basic woodwork, you know how to work with precision in millimeters instead of centimeters. After 12 weeks, a Teamleader may decide to give you a raise for good performance.
