Alliance Workforce Ltd

We are a Labour Hire Company, that specialises in the supply of temporary contract labour solely to the Decorating industry.

in recognition of our single industry specialism, we are the only Labour Hire Company to be members of the Painting and Decorating Association.

We supply, throughout the UK time-served, tried and tested Decorators, to Decorating, Shopfitting and Refurbishment Contractors, on an as required, hourly rate basis, throughout the UK, offering our clients a flexible, seamless addition to their own Decorating teams, whenever you need them.

In most cases we act as a silent partner, behind the scenes, therefore our Decorators are seen as being part of your own workforce on site.

The majority of our clients tell us that the quality of labour we provide, flexibility, the cost control of only paying for labour when they need it and the fact that we only supply Decorators, are major factors for using Alliance.

Perhaps we could also add, that by supplying Decorators, who live in close proximity to your contract, cuts down dramatically on unproductive travel and lodge expense.

In an effort to show confidence in our own service levels, we offer all clients an 8 hour guarantee. In the unlikely event that any Decorator(s) sent to site prove unsuitable within the first 8 hours,we will not charge you for their time.

Now in our tenth year, we have a pool of over 4000 Decorators throughout the UK, that we rotate from contract to contract, enabling us to get to know their strengths and weaknesses, whilst also gaining a greater amount of commitment from them, in turn offering each of our clients a better quality of service.

We hope you enjoy our website and look forward to working with you in the near future.

  • Sustainable Paints and Coatings – If you think painting stinks, then you’ll be happy to use the new Zero-VOC paint technology; a breathe of fresh air! Get a natural high and learn how to use natural paints and stains.

If you think this is you, then maybe a painting apprenticeship is for you.

Who should consider entering the painting and decorating trade?

Painters and decorators apply paint, varnish, wallpaper and other finishes to protect, maintain and decorate interior and exterior surfaces of domestic, commercial and industrial buildings and other structures.

A Painter and Decorator may perform the following tasks:

Painters may concentrate on a specific area of work, such as the internal or external painting of domestic homes, commercial buildings or industrial structures and equipment. They may work alone or as members of a team. They often work from ladders and scaffolding and do a lot of bending and stretching.

Personal Requirements:

  • physically fit
  • able to work at heights
  • interested in practical work
  • normal colour vision
  • good sense of balance

Qualification Awarded: Certificate III Painting and Decorating

What subjects make up Certificate III Painting and Decorating? Find out

How do I get a painting and decorating apprenticeship?

It is highly recommended that people considering this career firstly undertake a pre-vocational Certificate I in construction. A pre-vocational course gives the student an idea of what it is like to work in the industry, providing some solid foundation skills to enter the workplace, and the opportunity to participate in on the job vocational placement. You will gain some credit for your apprenticeship by undertaking a pre-vocational course.

Many students find employment with the employer they are assigned to for vocational placement in their pre-vocational course. Check our forum for employers looking for apprentices.

Course Duration: 4 years (full time) – formal training completed after 3 years

A painting and decorating apprenticeship is broken into a number of stages. While this is time-tabled over 3 years this is competency based training,and therefore students can progress faster through some parts of the apprenticeship if they are fast learners.
