  • Want to take your first step on the construction career ladder?
  • Want to earn a salary while you learn the practical skills required to build a solid career in a growing industry?
  • Want to feel genuine job satisfaction as you contribute to high profile projects such as Canterbury’s Innovation Centre, the Wing in Capel-le-Ferne and the luxurious Beach Houses on Margate Promenade?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an apprentice glazing installation technician to join the team at Prima Systems - an established glazing and cladding design and installation company based in Nonington, near Dover.

You will work alongside fully qualified and experienced Senior Installers who will train you on all aspects of the removal and fitting of windows, doors and curtain walling on commercial construction projects in Kent and the surrounding areas.

The role is physical and technically challenging – as your training progresses you will learn how to interpret construction drawings and gain a full understanding of the building regulations and industry standards required to ensure the installation is compliant.

A key element of your role will be to learn the on-site management of the installation including how to assess the programme of works, how to implement and monitor strict health and safety guidelines as specified in the project’s method statements and risk assessments and effectively communicate with the Client’s site teams to ensure the installation remains on schedule and any issues are quickly resolved or escalated to the Project Manager.
