How I became an Oakwrights Encapsulation Designer. By James Carden-Dare

James Carden-Dare Oakwrights Encapsulation Designer in the Office with Computer CAD Job I have always had an interest in woodwork and when I heard about how Oakwrights combine traditional carpentry methods with state of the art machinery, I thought it would be the perfect place for me start my career.

Becoming an oak frame designer

 

I thought that because I didn’t study carpentry or joinery at college, it would be very tough for me to qualify for a practical role. However after speaking on the phone to management, and asking them for advice on how to get my foot in the door, I was sent the application forms and soon began work as a site oak carpenter, erecting frames all over the country and learning the trade from very experienced framers. Despite not having written qualifications in carpentry I soon developed my practical skills on site and had great fun whilst doing so.

I now work as an encapsulation designer and apply what I learnt on site, to the design of the walls and roof panelling system. Oakwrights are a great company to work for, and encourage you to develop skills and progress within the company. They have many more options than the ones I chose and the vast variety of jobs within the company is better than I’ve seen anywhere else, meaning Oakwrights will have roles that appeal to a very wide audience and they’re well worth contacting, if you’re hardworking and willing to learn, you’ll fit right in.
