    Plasterer needs labourer NOTTINGHAM

    Hi, Established plasterer in Nottingham needs a labourer (possibly a school leaver?) for temp work over next 6 weeks with possibility of apprenticeship. Ideally you would have own vehicle but if not could be dropped off/ get to South Notts area (West Bridgford etc) Cheers
