Vacancies at P.A. Hollingworth & Co

Why work for P A Hollingworth & Co Ltd?

We are a family business, still run by the family and we’ve been operating for 35 years. We prefer to directly employ our staff, so that we can ensure our reputation for high quality finishes is maintained. As such you won’t have to worry about self-assessment tax forms, we provide PPE, we provide transport from the Deal area and pay you weekly straight into your bank. We also only work in the East Kent area. We are lucky enough to win contracts local to our office and where our staff live. So most days you will leave home at 7.30am and be back home by 5pm. As with all staff directly employed, we also pay into your pension along with your contribution.

So if you have a passion for your trade, get a kick out of a job well done to a high standard, and have a good work ethic – reliable, loyal, professional, productive – then please read on.
