Job Description

Although the initial positions start in Haringey, candidates will be expected to travel around as the work can be quite changeable – so a driving licence will be an advantage to any applicants.

You will be required to:

  • Replacing or installing new roofing systems on buildings and customising materials for individual roofs
  • Ensuring that roofing materials are aligned with edges of roofs
  • Cementing or nailing flashing-strips of metal or shingle over joints to ensure that they are watertight
  • Critically inspecting a room to determine the best repair or replacement procedure for it
  • Inspecting the work area to ensure that all required materials are present
  • Ensuring that materials are properly trimmed to tightly fit along the edges of a roof and altering materials as needed
  • Smoothing and leveling roof surfaces by smoothing out rough spots and preparing a surface for new shingles or waterproofing
  • Ensuring that the job location is neat and safe by cleaning it up during work and once the job is completed

Desired skills

  • Ability to work confidently at heights
  • Excellent hand-eye coordination
  • Good level of physical fitness
  • Awareness of health and safety
  • Ability to understand technical drawings and plans
  • Good written and verbal communication skills
  • Grades A-C / 9-4 at GCSE or Functional Skills Level 2 in maths and English preferred

Personal qualities

  • Good communication and interpersonal skills which enable him/her to establish and maintain positive working relationships with peers, customers, and other contractors
  • Physical fitness and stamina, since the job requires many physical requirements such as the ability to lift heavy materials and withstand extensive bending, kneeling, and harsh weather conditions
  • The ability to strictly adhere to construction and company health and safety policies and procedures
  • Another essential duty that is carried out by a roofer after fixing a roof is to complete the site set up and clean up, as cleaning up the job location where he/she worked is his/her responsibility

Essential

  • CSCS card, but help will be given to obtain one if not already held
