Whether it is contributing to new business efforts or submitting our employees onto courses & training, we offer numerous opportunities for our team members to develop their skills and knowledge in order to have a fulfilling career at Timberwise.

In addition to submitting our employees on training courses, a substantial portion of our expertise and skills is learned through on-the-job training. This typically consists of a one-to-one mentoring system which encourages the mentor and the mentee to develop a working relationship.

Over the last month, Timberwise have made several progressions regarding our employees professional development. Across the business, employees have been conducted onto various tailored training programmes allowing them to acquire better and more advanced skills specific for their role.


At Timberwise, all our surveyors undergo thorough in-house and external training in order to gain the recognised qualification, the CSRT (Certified Surveyor in Remedial Treatment), necessary for them to perform their job effectively and efficiently at all times. Our keen, hard-working surveyors, Tom Dear, Craig Manson, Nic Glover, Danny Verdon, and Chris Martin are all currently going through their CSRT examinations. Passing the course not only gives them industry recognition but more importantly, provides formal confirmation that they have surpassed the level knowledge and understanding that is required.

Our North West Surveyor, Sarah Haslam has enrolled onto the PCA’s CSSW course (Certified Surveyor in Structural Waterproofing). Achieving this qualification will allow Sarah to specify waterproofing water solutions to BS8102.

PCA Specialist Apprentices

Our specialist apprentices, Jack Barrow and Luke Hainsworth are, undergoing  a comprehensive apprentice programme with the Property Care Association which will give them an insight into subjects including wet and dry rot, wood boring insects, rising damp and timber treatments. The scheme has been designed by the Property Care Association to encourage young people into the preservation industry.


Our apprentice Joiner, Ryan Neville, is taking his Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Wood Occupations. This will give him a solid foundation in Carpentry and Joinery, enabling him to demonstrate industry related skills in a real workplace environment.

Office Team

Within the head office, two of our valuable office team, Carolyn Leonard and Kate Curzon are undergoing diplomas in Business and Customer Service. Committing to these courses allows both Carolyn and Kate to develop their skill set to further advance in the great work that they do.
