Playground Installer

We are looking to recruit a Playground Installer to support an experienced playground installer on sites around the North of England - based near Alderley Edge. You'll form part of a two man team, installing school playground equipment and surfacing in schools, assembling, building, lifting, laying, unloading, digging holes, and helping see through all aspects of a successful playground install. It's heavy work, outdoors throughout the year in all weathers, with plenty of travel, but we've got the best customers in the world - kids - and you'll help in building their dream playground. You'll be hard working and careful in your work, take instructions and carry out tasks to a high standard on time, be helpful, industrious, knowing that your role is just as important as the lead installer's in getting the job done well and on time.
