What's involved?

There are many types of resin flooring systems from 300 micron floor coatings to a 10mm terrazzo. 

All systems are mixed and laid where they are needed, which is called "in situ" in both industrial and commercial environments. Resin floor layers have the specialist skills needed to produce the right surface finish to meet specific deadlines.

Skills required

The job is physically demanding so you'll need to be reasonably fit, as well as practical and good with your hands so you can operate the specialist machinery.

You'll need to be co-operative, team-orientated and have good numeracy skills as you will be calculating surface areas and volumes. You'll also need to be able to read plans, diagrams and information sheets.

Some time may be taken up travelling between different work sites and projects, so a driving licence may be useful.

Qualifications required

There are no formal requirements although Standard Grades in Maths and English or Welsh may be helpful for the calculations, measurements and theory.

(Applications from students with the Foundation or Intermediate Welsh Baccalaureate are also welcomed).

Salary ranges

(This is a guide to the average salary a fully qualified and experienced person might expect to get.)
