Full job description

Paul Russell and Company is looking for an experienced classic car trimmer to join our award-winning team. Successful applicants will be confident in all aspects of classic car interior trimming and restoration including carpeting, convertible tops, door panels, seat construction and luggage. As a lead coach trimmer, you will complete projects entirely independently while being equally adept at performing duties in a team setting. Candidates must have proven expertise in sourcing period correct materials and in the methods employed by the great European coachbuilders of the classic era.

Please no walk in or phone applications - apply online here or through our website

Job Requirements:

  • 10+ years of experience restoring European collectible automobile interiors
  • A positive attitude and strong, team-oriented, communication skill
  • Ability to coordinate and collaborate with all other departments
  • Deep understanding of historic coach trimming techniques as used on the finest European marques from the pre-war era through the 1960s
  • Ability to work independently from initial discovery/disassembly to concours-level completion
  • Experience identifying and sourcing period correct materials
  • Demonstrated mastery in all aspects of interior restoration including seats, carpeting, panels, headliners, tops, straps and luggage
  • Passion for championing historically accurate materials and methods of work
  • A valid driver's license and clean record

About Paul Russell and Company:

Often described as a dream workplace for a hard-core car junkie with excellent automotive skills. The company is dedication to craftsmanship and has a passion for cars, like pre-war European classics, 300SLs, V-12 Ferraris, and 4-cam Porsches; that attitude is a must in order to be successful in our workshop. Both our restoration and service projects take an intelligent approach at the outset, a logical and thorough process to the work performed, and a focus on doing it right the first time. We aim to provide our clients with the best value and highest level of service.

A candidate for this position should know that classic car service/preservation/restoration work is totally different from other automotive service businesses. A service job is rarely completed in an afternoon, or even one day. It is generally a multi-day or multi-week endeavor. A restoration job is rarely completed in a year and frequently takes two. Due to the age of the cars we work on, many components are no longer available. The ability to thoughtfully take something apart while taking careful notes, repair it, and reassemble it "as new" is a necessary skill. Work pace is important, yet when one is striving for superb quality, the total hours required to achieve those standards can be staggering. The successful candidate will place a high value on the opportunity to do quality work on premium automobiles in an environment that supports their high standards.

Our workshop, a 38,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art complex, has been purpose-built to support the award-winning restoration work that is accomplished within. The workspace at Paul Russell and Company has evolved over the decades to include dedicated areas for coachbuilding, bodywork and paint, mechanical, machining, upholstery, parts and materials, and a sales showroom, all under one roof.
