About the job

As a Trainee, you'll get all the learning and support you need to start up as a Laminator, with training usually lasting about 4 weeks.

From here, you'll get fully involved in the production process, working with a range of hand lay materials, as well as preparing and releasing different sized moulds. You'll work as part of a small team to meet the production targets, whilst delivering a high standard of workmanship.
