THE LOG & TIMBER SPECIALISTS

A Passion for Log and Timber Joinery

Working with Nicola LogWorks

wander-gesehler ThumbnailWe are always on the lookout for like-minded colleagues and employees who might be a fit with our team. Skills and talents in heavy timber are highly prized here at Nicola LogWorks, but more importantly we hire for attitude.
We like and respect the people who work with us - and that is important - given the amount of time most of us spend at work.
John works hard to keep work in the yard on a year round basis - and if you are already in the field of construction you know that can be a challenge! If you are looking for an entry level position with us, bring your good attitude and be prepared to put your back into it!
Typically new employees start on the peeling deck or with repetative tasks such as sanding and grinding, yard cleanup etc...If you show an aptitude or interest for learning log and timber skills you can expect to grow your abilities while you work with us.
