This is an amazing opportunity to join one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of modular housing. The work is varied and challenging with excellent prospects for the right people. We currently operate a day shift only but will be moving to an alternating 6am – 2pm / 2pm – 10pm split shift later this year so please only apply if you accept this format.

What we do

We have set up a factory to build modular housing from Cross Laminated Timber. Essentially this means a house is divided into modules with each module being built complete in terms of internals. A finished module looks like any room you are sitting in with all electrics, plumbing, painting, tiling and even carpets fitted. The finished modules are then transported to site where they are assembled together and the externals are finished.

Is this you?

  • Enjoy factory production and want to feel like you have achieved something
  • Can take on board and retain lots of training
  • Ready to prove you are reliable, hardworking and committed
  • Have the flexibility to work on all aspects of the production line, assembling the modules and performing quality checks
  • Team player
  • Able to adapt to a busy pressurised factory environment
  • Have the ability to accurately follow written procedures at all times
  • Have a great eye and strong attention to detail
  • Enjoys and wants to be an active member of a team
  • Self-motivated, flexible with a can do attitude

Experience of a factory / production / manufacturing environment is essential. Full training will be provided to align your skills with our proces. Good DIY skills are a distinct advantage.


If you answered yes to ALL the above, then you’re the kind of candidate we are looking for to fill several new production roles.
