You'll be working within a team, ensuring the production targets are met whilst upholding a flawless standard of workmanship to uphold the world-renowned Sunseeker quality standards.

Your working hours will be 7.00am to 3.15pm Monday - Friday. The Portland site is easy to get to, with a local bus that arrives in time for your 7am start, or provided parking if you're using your own transport.

£11.82 From day one, all Trainees will receive £11,82 per hour as a basic rate of pay.
£12.77 After twelve weeks of service, your pay rate will automatically increase to £12.77 in accordance with the Agency Worker Regulations (AWR).
£14.00 After 26 weeks of continuous service, you will be eligible for a further pay increase, subject to a performance observation by your management team, and in consideration to your attendance, timekeeping, attitude, and development within the role.

Overtime is paid for hours worked over your basic 40 hours at time and a half or double pay on Sundays and Bank holidays. You will not be eligible to work overtime within your first eight weeks of employment.

You will also be entitled to 30 days holiday a year - inclusive of bank holidays.

Previous experience
You don't need any previous experience in laminating, but we are looking for candidates who have worked with their hands or on their feet in ideally a production or industrial based environment.
