Trainee / Assistant Upholsterer

Neptune HQ, Swindon – Permanent, full-time

Design consideration is at the very heart of everything we create at Neptune. Be it the materials we use or simply about always doing the right thing. Each of our UK team brings a different talent to the table, and together we make beautiful furniture, kitchens, upholstery and all the little things that help to give a home soul.

For us, upholstery isn't just about the beautiful choice of textile on the outside (although just so you know we house over 40 textiles in our fabric library, from pure linen to rich velvet and from patterned to plain). It's also about the bones of the furniture, so we've designed upholstery with frames that will endure. An expert upholsterer will know, when the fabric begins to tire, and eventually, when the fillings need a bit of a pick-me-up, a careful and loving repair and re-upholster will bring that favourite piece of furniture back to its original beauty.

The role

We are now seeking an Assistant Upholsterer to join our small Wiltshire based team. You will closely with an experienced Upholsterer to assist in the construction and repair of a range of upholstered products, ensuring that quality and craftmanship are achieved.

You and what you need

  • Use your existing experience within upholstery alongside learning new skills and techniques
  • Undertake fabric cutting for samples or shipments to customers and suppliers
  • Support in ensuring continual improvement across existing upholstered ranges
  • Meet benchmarks for quality craftmanship, working to the highest possible standards

You'll have a confident and positive approach to your work, coupled with excellent communication and listening skills and have a strong desire to learn. You will also be highly organised, enjoy problem solving and have an exceptional eye for detail.
