Atlantic Carpenter


Salary Grade 4 £19,171 - £21,166 per annum

UWC Atlantic, founded in 1962, is the original United World College. Enjoying a spectacular location at St. Donat’s Castle, perched above the Bristol Channel approximately 20 miles west of Cardiff, our 380 students are drawn from over 90 countries, with many attending on scholarship and all of them taking part in a well-developed co-curricular programme.

Our unique and distinctive mission is ‘to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future’.  The College encourages international understanding and tolerance by demonstrating that conflict and hostility can be overcome if young people from different nations, races and religions are brought together and challenged physically and academically.

As a Carpenter, you will join a skilled team of colleagues undertaking maintenance across the campus, incorporating working in the Castle, classrooms, offices, student houses and employee houses.  Although the role is primary carpentry, you may also be required to undertake work that sits outside of the primary work.

In order to provide excellent service, you will ensure that all equipment, materials, stock and plant are maintained and in good condition and you will have the ability to read blueprints, drawings and sketches to fully grasp requirements.

Organised, committed and hardworking, you will have previous experience in a physically demanding post and possess good levels of manual dexterity and have good carpentry and joining skills.
