This profession is present in both the new construction and renovation sectors of the building industry, which plays a crucial role in developing the necessary infrastructure for society such as homes, hospitals, schools, energy, and transportation. With the increasing demand for new housing, there is a growing need for carpenters and joiners.

An Advanced Site Carpenter would undertake complex jobs such as liaising with other trades and contractors, and potentially supervising others. An Advanced Architectural Joiner would also work with architects and designers in a workshop setting, primarily using timber.

Advanced Site Carpenters are responsible for constructing domestic and commercial properties on building sites, including preparing and installing intricate and customised building components. Advanced Architectural Joiners work in a workshop where they produce intricate building components by utilising their advanced woodworking skills to set out, mark, and assemble the required components.
