A SPECIALISED PAINTER MAKES THINGS NEW AGAIN

Katariina, a trained specialist painter, came to Bolt through a stroke of luck. A long-running costuming project had just ended, and it was Katariina’s first free day. Sitting in the kitchen staring at her laptop, she started to think about what work she might do next. A new job had to get underway soon, and so she started looking for painting work. There were plenty of vacancies, and after considering things for a little while she sent of a job application. “And within the space of a few minutes, the phone rang and I was called for an interview,” Katariina recalls. The interview was on the very next day, and within the same week she had begun a work safety course. “I’m still in the same site where I started off at the end of January,” Katariina told us in March.

_“On the current worksites I’ve been doing painting jobs that demand a lot of precision, and filling in dents and scratches – that is, wood restoration. “I paint on timber fibres so that the wood looks real. I make broken things new again.” _

Mobile Bolt service does away with pointless calls

“I use Bolt’s mobile service, it’s really clear and dynamic. I mark in the days I’m not free, when I know I’ll be on other jobs, so that the employer can see when I’m not available,” the painter says. Katariina has been offered other work too, but because his present worksite has kept her busy, other work has had to wait. I’ve done other jobs in costume design before, but the best-paid gig are through Bolt,” she says.

Professionals get ahead

For a talented specialist painter, there has been so much work that it hasn’t been possible to take everything that’s offered. Katariina also does restoration work, so old buildings are well familiar to her too. She’s well able to handle restoration using the original techniques, gold-leaf lettering, and other demanding painting work. “When I’m given some damaged thing and I know that it’s really expensive new, and I make it new again. Then I feel that I’ve given the world something, so that there’s no need to throw things out. So from the recycling point of view also it’s really rewarding, and I’m proud that I get to repair and restore things,” Katariina muses.

“I recommend Bolt”

Katariina thinks highly of her employer. In her view, Bolt’s staff are active, quick to react, and genuinely eager to help their workers. Whatever’s promised to Katariina always goes ahead, and things go smoothly in every other way also. Bolt is working hard to revolutionise the practices in temporary staffing, and to be the most reliable employer in the field. The kind of employer that takes care of its workers in all situations.
