We’re Hiring Skilled Trades People Who Will Enjoy Both Working on Construction Projects & Training New Builders in the Craft (Carpentry Skills Required)
CoBuild is a social enterprise that provides both residential and commercial construction
services. Not only do we make beautiful spaces, but we also partner with a non-profit, Emerging Builders, Inc., on all of our construction projects. This partnership provides apprenticeship opportunities for groups who are underrepresented in the construction industry; specifically, women, and Black and Indigenous People of Color. Our work is as much about people as it is about the spaces we create.
As we grow, we are seeking skilled trades people who are able to deliver on both the needs of our clients and our Emerging Builders. Fair warning, this is a tricky balance, that is certainly not for everyone, but to the right people this dual purpose provides an extremely rewarding and fulfilling experience.
Proficiency in carpentry is required but experience with other trades is also preferred. Full and part time positions are available, and wages are highly competitive.
Is this you? You will thrive at CoBuild if you’re committed to using your skills to help shape a place at the intersection of affordable housing and job training. If you get as excited about bringing abandoned buildings back to life as you do about using the latest technologies to build affordable and eco-friendly homes, you would be excited about your future with CoBuild. If equity and inclusion are important to you then you would feel welcome here.
Next Steps? If this sounds like you, or someone you know, please tag them, message us, or contact us through our website. We will get you more information and schedule a time to meet. (https://www.cobuildkc.com/)
Candidates will need to provide a resume with references. Photos of past work would also be very helpful.
Looking forward to meeting you soon,
The CoBuild Team
