compensation: Based on skill level / negotiable
employment type: full-time

Nationally recognized metal art studio looking for an apprentice to help with major projects.

Metal forming and welding is a daily routine. Tig welding for 2/3rds of the day at times.
This is a fun, learning process job. But also is a working studio with a schedule of work to complete.
Projects need to be done in a timely manner and be of a certain quality.
Process includes plasma torch cutting, hammer forming, and TIG welding.

Requirements for this position:
Three years of Tig welding experience preferred but less is ok.
Ability to learn quickly and retain process sequence.
A person who likes to solve problems creating purpose built tools to form metal.
Machine shop experience a plus but not required.
Blacksmithing experience a plus but also not required.
Must have a valid drivers license and transportation to and from work.
Must be able to frequently lift and/or move up to 50 pounds
Job is from 8-4:30 weekdays with some overtime as needed.

Interested people should e-mail the studio requesting an interview.
This is a unique job. People will need to learn the skills. But previous experience is useful.
I'm looking for Attitude and Aptitude.

This job is awesome but it is still a job. I expect the person or persons who work here to be responsible, respectful and creative.
I'd like to meet with candidates for an interview. In an effort to save time, please do not apply if you have not been involved with a metal shop or metal fabrication for at least five years. Although this is a learning job, it's not a school. The projects change constantly so the work is interesting and fun. Public installations, School mascots, and many private clients keep us busy.

I'm open to paying a skilled person what they are worth. In a very short time it will be apparent to both of us how to move forward.
This studio has been a full time commissioned based operation for 25 years.
Looking forward to meeting you.
Chris
