We are looking for an artistic, creative person to join our growing team at Good Shepherd Toys.

We manufacture and sell wooden toys and collectable figures. You will be joining our small workshop team, and work alongside them in all aspects of manufacturing our toys.

This position is best suited to a young person as it is an entry level position. You will be trained on the job and we don’t require any specific qualifications; but creative and artistic ability is a must.

You will be trained to do basic woodworking (using scroll-saws, jigsaws and sanding machines), and also to paint our wooden figures. It is not necessary to have prior woodworking experience, as you will be trained on the job; but any skills in this line would count in your favour. We are looking for someone reliable and enthusiastic, who loves working with their hands and making beautiful things.

Please email us your CV, along with a brief letter supporting your application. If you can show photos of some painting/woodworking/crafting type projects you have done, that will certainly be appreciated.

The position is available immediately.

Salary will be discussed, but will be between R6000-R7000 per month at start (with additional travel allowance), with definite room for growth should you show aptitude for the work. This is a full time position.

Hours are Mon-Thurs, 8AM-5PM, and Friday 8AM-12PM. Our workshops are based in Theescombe. Own transport is a must.

SA citizenship or a valid work permit is required.
