Work With Us

At Burfitt & Garrett, we believe in looking after our employees, ensuring that they receive on-going training, and recognising the valuable contribution they make to our team.

While we have positions for about 40 employees at any one time, we are always interested in hearing from hard-working, skilled and experienced trades-people and operatives. We also run annual bricklaying and carpentry apprenticeship schemes.

We offer:

  • Competitive rates of pay
  • Pension scheme
  • Holiday pay

If you would like to apply for a position or apprenticeship, please contact us and tell us what you're interested in.


We actively promote taking on apprentices and have been offering apprenticeships through the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) for over 10 years.

Over that time, we have trained apprentices in Bricklaying, Carpentry and Painting and Decorating.

Once the students have completed their course, they tend to carry on working with us for many years and are given the opportunity to progress in their roles.
