Nzilani is looking to hire two skilled glaziers for full-time term positions to both install and remove large stained glass windows on site. The work is very physical, with long periods of lifting, bending, squatting, sitting and requires repetitive use of your shoulders, arms and wrists. Additionally, the artwork must be treated delicately and professionally. The job will be onsite in San Francisco; hours are limited to 6 on-site as the work is labor intensive. Successful candidates must attend a three-day certification course in lead-related construction, prior to window removal in June. Both course fees and attendance time will be paid by Nzilani; there is an initial $75 fee for this certification which will be refunded to you should you become a permanent employee.
Salary: $24-31 commensurate upon experience.
There is potential for continuation of work in the studio, immediately after completion of the site work. This job provides the opportunity to learn extensive knowledge of stained glass conservation and to contribute to efficiencies within the company.
