Job Description

Our client, a major manufacturer of passive fire protection and thermal insulation products, is looking for hard-working, energetic chargehands to join their application teams around the UK and overseas. We are looking for people who are willing to travel/work away from home for extended periods.

Your main duties would involve supervising application tasks, and operating machinery, tools and equipment.

Experience in coatings application / supervision is essential. No specific qualifications are needed, but must have a driving licence, current passport and be double-jabbed against covid-19.

Whilst working on an onshore project, you receive base rate plus uplift plus cost of living allowance (COLA).

For any UK-based work you would earn ~£180 per day for a 10 hour day (overseas or offshore are higher, see below).

If there are any short periods between projects during which you are stood down, you will still receive the base rate.

Offshore shifts are 12 hours, onshore 10 hours.

All transport and accommodation is paid for in addition.

You could reasonably expect to work for intensive periods of 70 hours per week on projects, followed by periods of downtime, during which your basic salary would still be paid.

If you spent two-thirds of the year on projects, your income would be in the 40 - 49k region
