Become part of our team!

ALBL Oberammergau is a family business art studio in the heart of the Ammergau Alps in Bavaria, Germany. Do you feel like working with one of the oldest wood sculpting families in Europe (in its 14th generation) on projects from around the world? From a monastery in South Korea, a private chapel in South Africa to a cathedral in the USA…. in addition to clergy and private customers, our clients include renowned architects, artists and designers.

To strengthen our young and dynamic team we are looking for immediately:

• You make unique pieces out of wood for a wide range of sacred commissions
• Your area of work includes the fully sculpted statue as well as relief work. For example, from a larger-than-life crucifix to a altar ornament
• The implementation is based on drafts drawn up by our designers. You can also model these in clay before carving
• A conscientious care of our wood storage
• Independent preparation of the wooden block (cutting, planing, gluing)
• You are enthusiastic about classical art and architecture and are familiar with the stylistic elements of the various eras
• Your focus is the naturalistic sculpture
• Proportion and folds are your passion, but you also enjoy relief work and ornamentation
• You have completed training as a wood carver and have at least 5 years of experience in wood carving (with a focus on sacred art would be desirable)
• You attach great importance to details and careful preparation
• You want to learn a lot of new things and like to take on responsibility
• You can organize yourself well and have the skills to implement projects on schedule
• Safe handling of manual tools and machines
• A workplace that is unique in Germany, where you can devote yourself to challenging sculpture every day within exciting projects
• A varied activity in a traditional family company in a pleasant working atmosphere
• A future-proof workplace with a healthy living studio, bright rooms and modern equipment
• A permanent contract with flexible and family-friendly working hours
