Summary

 

Dry liners build internal walls in residential and commercial structures. They use plasterboard panels to reduce cost and weight and also to make the walls easier to move or remove. As a dry liner, your work will involve a ‘fixing’ stage, followed by a ‘finishing’ stage.

 


The role and responsibilities

At the ‘fixing’ stage, you will:

  • Measure and cut plasterboard to the right sizes and angles
  • Fix the panels to timber or metal frames (or ceiling joists) using special studs
  • Cut panels to fit around doorways and create openings for windows

You will then ‘finish’ the walls by:

  • Sealing joints using filler or adhesive
  • Taping over the seal either by hand or with a taping machine
  • Applying a thin layer of plaster over the tape (skimming)
  • Sanding down the area ready for painting and decorating

Dry lining methods are used to hide wiring or pipes, improve a room’s acoustics, and provide a cavity space for insulation or to smooth out uneven walls during renovation work. This role could be combined with traditional plastering or other types of work, for example sectioning off areas in open-plan offices

 Skills and experience

  • Do not need to have any formal qualifications or training, although beneficial.
  • Punctual
  • Positive attitude to work and colleagues
  • Ability and awareness of working safely
  • Self-motivation
  • Desire to learn
  • Has strong self-awareness
  • Is both resilient and committed
  • Is always looking to improve
  • Enjoys being a team player
  • Entry Level 3 in Functional skills or GSCE grade 2/G or above in English and Maths

Please note: Priority will be given to Brent residents in the first instance. This vacancy may close before the advertised closing date if a sufficient number of suitable applications are received. Early application is therefore recommended.
