Specialist in Timber Frame design and engineering company located in North Somerset. There are plans to expand the team in the future but finding talent for the design roles is thought to be a challenge as there is a shortage of suitable skills in timber frame design. Interested in growing their own talent for the future and would like to take on someone and train. For this particular area, there is more emphasis on having an interest in design and the other qualities (organisational skills, communicate at all levels, eye for detail, hardworking etc) rather than formal qualifications as much of the role and associated software (autoCAD and various other industry based software applications) can be taught and progressed on to professional qualifications later. Has taken on people without A-levels in the past and developed them and keen to do so again via a proper route. Small friendly team, with parking on site.
It is thought at this stage that there are no apprenticeship standards specifically aimed at the sector however would be keen to connect with providers who may be able to offer a solution (perhaps those who specialise in design/architectural education) who may have a pipe line of capable designers with an interest in getting to industry.
