Decorator /Paper Hanger recruitment agency listing
Painters and decorators love to do the jobs we hate! Getting that piece of patterned wallpaper placed just right is harder than it looks, never mind having to do it twenty-five times.
For those people just starting out in the business, it helps to have some practical experience and even a vocational qualification such as the CITB Intermediate / Advanced Construction Award in Decorative Occupations. This shows potential employers and recruitment agencies the basic level of what the candidate is capable of, although qualifications arent considered necessary.
The skills and standards a person has are the most important thing for obtaining employment in decorating and paper hanging. They are expected to arrive punctually, to work to a high, neat standard, and to be as clean as is reasonably possible. The potential for mess is high in this business. Strong awareness of health and safety for themselves and others is also very important, and the ability to work both alone, and as part of a team.
Wages when working as staff decorators for a large company should range from £13,500 p.a. (entry level) to over £22,000 p.a. for skilled supervisors. However, many decorators prefer to be self employed, and should be looking at an hourly rate of £15 to £17 per hour.
