JOB POSTING: Straw Panel Fabrication Lead

I’m excited to announce we are hiring a Panel Fabrication Lead for our straw-insulated structural panel team! Full description can be found here: Meet Us — New Frameworks, short description below:

New Frameworks, a worker-owned cooperative design and construction company, is hiring a Panel Fabrication Lead to coordinate the successful build and installation of low carbon, insulated wall and roof panels, working primarily in our shop in Essex Junction, VT. The production of straw bale panels is a development in the natural building and green building trades designed to accelerate the drawdown of atmospheric carbon levels by making this technology widely available and easily accessible. This position requires travel to deliver and install panels on site, up to a 5 hour drive radius from our shop. We are a busy, fun, egalitarian-yet-structured, creative, kind, and mission-driven group of people working together towards the goal of developing ecological and social climate justice and regeneration practices in the building and design trades. Our ideal candidate has 5+ years of experience in shop production, carpentry, construction, renovation, trades as well as experience leading and supervising a team. We have a bilingual crew and Spanish language skills are useful in this position.

If you’ve been looking for a way to use your construction skills to advance climate change response through the built environment; build with natural, local, and plant-based materials; and be an integral part of an equitable, intersectional feminist workplace with a strong team culture, we welcome you! $26-30/hr depending on experience, plus paid time off, benefits, education, and profit sharing. To apply, please submit a letter of interest and resume via email to []. People of color, trans and gender-nonconforming people, people from poor and working-class backgrounds, queer people, and women are encouraged to apply.
