Due to an increase in demand in our mortar yard we are seeking to recruit a dynamic and motivated full time yardsman to join our growing team of building conservation professionals.

Reporting to the senior yardsman duties will include mixing lime mortars, slaking lime, bagging aggregates and mortars, crushing and sieving stonedusts, loading lorries, monitoring stocks and maintaining a clean working environment.

Candidates will receive full training but previous experience of site work, mortar mixing or the building industry would be an advantage.  The job will involve lifting and a degree of manual labour.  The ability to drive a forklift and telehandler would as be beneficial.

Immediate start with a competitive salary and contributory pension scheme.

Rose of Jericho Stand

The show was held on Tuesday 16th November at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in Westminster. It was a great opportunity to meet up with the owners and professionals involved with historic buildings to discuss their projects and showcase our products and services.

Our Venetian Red (no.7 in the picture) was recently featured in the special Colour Issue of The World of Interiors.

Venetian Red was traditionally made using the natural earth ‘Rosso Veneziano’ from the Southern Alps near Venice. Rosso Veneziano was an ingredient of the pigment Cinabrese, used in Italian Renaissance paintings for skin tones. Our Venetian Red is a blend of Italian red and yellow ochre and burnt umber.
