Meet Chris, specialist advisor at Hillarys

As one of our self-employed specialist installers Chris fits conservatory roof blinds and shutters. He turned to Hillarys for the flexibility that his role brings him, something he really values as a single Dad.

I fitted a blind for a customer the other day and she said, ‘You must make so many people happy.' Just putting a blind up in a room can totally transform it.

What skills and experience do I need?

Equipped to build an efficient and effective business, you’ll become an expert at fitting shutters, conservatory blinds and awnings. You’ll work for yourself, but with the benefit of an experienced area manager to support you. 

Every installer is also invited back for on-going training to stay in the know of product launches and new technology that can advance your business. You’ll also benefit from an online community website and eLearning platform.
