Carpenter Oak creates award winning inspired timber architecture, championing wood, craft, innovation & design. All our projects are bespoke and unique, setting us apart from the rest of the industry. We work with dynamic clients and designers.

We value and develop our co-owners and empower them. We promote a culture of transparency and have policies that support the health and wellbeing of our co-owners. We care about happiness. We know that we are stronger together and value good relationships.

We are looking for a trainee and an experienced timber frame carpenter to join our team in Scotland.

Based at our yard on the shores of the beautiful Loch of Lintrathen just 30 minutes from Dundee, working a 4 day week means that you will have extra time to enjoy the great outdoors and explore the nearby Cairngorms National Park. When at work, you’ll be part of a skilled and talented team of craftsmen and women who like to share skills, experiences and stories over a Thursday night beer!

Living and working in Scotland comes with many rewards, including a lower cost of living. If you’re thinking that this would be a great opportunity for you, but are unsure about making the move up north, then talk to us. We might be able to help you with the relocation.

Working as a timber framer for Carpenter Oak is more of a vocation than a job. We develop, train and help you build a long term career as a professional traditional timber frame carpenter.

Our work covers the full spectrum of timber builds, from major heritage projects through to exciting contemporary timber engineering schemes; both residential and commercial.
