We're looking for the best Spray Painters in the business to work on a prestigious project in the North West!

The Re-Paint Project is currently underway at an impressive new facility in Widnes, refurbishing a 56-strong fleet of trains. Working in a large team of Spray Painters, Multi-Disciplined Operatives, Vehicle Preppers and more, the aim is to deliver a full external re-spray of these iconic rail vehicles to the highest possible standard.
