Pet Travel crates are made out of plywood/wire mesh/softwood and are used to fly pets in and out of UK. A skilled DIY person will have the basic skills to do this.

Day to day duties will entail cutting 12mm and 6mm 8x4ft sheets of ply to different sizes on a panel saw to suit different animal specs. Cutting and assembling frames/doors out of 2x1 upon use of a mitre saw. This then follows by meshing to allow significant ventilation. Each crate is built to an IATA standard (Rules and regulation set by the airlines).

Travel crates that are ordered are mainly for cats and dogs but we also have requests for rats, ferrets, hamsters and parrots crates/cages which require a bit more attention to detail.
Within most months there is a delivery of plywood or heat treated 2x1. Currently this is handballed into the workshop. On average 150 sheets. And 3000 meters of 2x1. This is an average of 600 lengths. Also we receive sheets 12g and rolls of 16g mesh.

You will also be required to help keep the workshop tidy daily.

We are a positive and friendly team looking for an individual who is keen to listen and learn and within time get involved in potential new ideas to help drive our business forward.

If you are interested please send in a cover letter and CV in the first instance.
