Description
VCA Inc. is a growing company located in Western Massachusetts, who creates very high end residential interiors and unique furniture for clients around the world. We specialize (and excel) in custom architectural millwork and one-of-a-kind furniture for discerning architects, designers, general contractors and owners.

We collaborate with artists and artisans both locally and globally. No finish or material challenge is too much for us, be it wood, metal, custom glass, parchments, lacquers and paints, or stone. We take pride in maintaining the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality. We value collaboration, commitment to craft and high quality results. We respect the input and efforts of everyone involved in the creative process. We emphasize attention to every aspect of production and strive for excellence on each project we complete.

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK HERE:
If you’re just looking for a paycheck in a stress-free environment, VCA is probably not for you. We are looking for people who are not only passionate, but eager to work in collaboration with like-minded co-workers. If you are seeking a position that is different every day with an opportunity to make a real difference, then look no further.

This position is busy, sometimes crazy, and always dynamic. Creativity and input from the team are encouraged. There will be moments of stress with deadlines and the like, but that will be rewarded with the sweet satisfaction of working with team mates who have your back to help ensure everyone’s success. That, in itself, can be and is, exhilarating.

You will have pride in being part of some of the most incredible, one-of-a-kind creations on the planet, with the accomplishment of a job well done.

If you have the passion, work ethic, commitment, interest and inherent ability, as well as willingness to learn and work with others, this might be a good fit. The possibilities are endless.

THE OPPORTUNITY:
We have an excellent opportunity for an Assistant Project Manager to join our team of professionals in a supporting role. Although working knowledge of metal work, high end custom residential millwork, along with custom furniture projects is highly preferable, a motivated individual willing and eager to learn is what we are seeking.
