    The ideal candidate will be based at our Highway Garden & Leisure site and will assist with the care and maintenance of Highways and Roys Variety Stores across Norfolk and Suffolk. You should have proven experience of carpentry together with basic skills, in one or more other trades, to enable you to take on minor emergency, or planned repairs to a satisfactory level.
