Upholstery Apprenticeships- New for 2021!

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to start a new career/ retrain in a much-sought after skill. Following the success of our Sewing School, we are very excited to be launching our Upholstery School in 2021.

Recruits will be trained in everything from attaching padding and springs to building furniture using loose fibre fillings, cotton, felt and foam padding. Successful applicants will receive on the job training in a variety of skills and methods which are essential to the manufacturing of quality domestic upholstered furniture from pre-upholstery to finished product.

Both the Sewing and Upholstery schools will be located at the new Langham site in the second half of 2021.

We are looking for applicants with a genuine interest in furniture manufacturing with excellent communications skills, the ability to learn and be able to demonstrate attention to detail. Experience in prepping or the use of a staple gun will be advantageous but not essential as full training will be given. The successful candidate will be expected to adhere to the Company’s policies and procedures, including Health & Safety and Quality Standards.

We are looking for 12 apprentices to join the course later this year. The course will start in August 2021 and will last between 12-15 months. Recruits will be paid the National Minimum Wage plus a production-related bonus.

All those who pass the course will become a fully qualified Upholsterer and will be offered a full time role in one of our production sites.

If you would like to apply, please email megan.saint@whitemeadow.com. The closing date is the end of July 2021.
