Neptune HQ, Swindon - Permanent, full-time

The role

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.

We are now seeking a skilled and experienced Upholsterer to join our small Wiltshire based team. You will work with a range of upholstered furniture in the repair and re-upholstering of both our custom, made to order tailored options and our carefully selected available now collection.

In this brand new role you will:

  • Use traditional and modern craftmanship methods to repair and re-upholster a range of furniture
  • Share your considerable knowledge with our in-house teams to ensure the highest quality craftmanship is achieved
  • Ensure continual improvement across existing upholstered ranges and source new upholstery materials for improved performance
  • Work with our Design team to deliver prototypes following design briefs and estimate cost of raw materials, products and services
  • Set benchmarks for quality craftmanship to ensure the highest possible standards are achieved in manufacture

You will bring a comprehensive knowledge of upholstery using modern and traditional techniques and previous experience within quality craftsmanship. Fabric cutting experience would also be highly desirable. You'll have a positive approach to problem-solving to find solutions that will improve product performance. It also goes without saying you'll have an impeccable eye for detail and set high working standards for yourself and others you work with.

This role may suit someone who has previously ran their own upholstery business, so you'll have strong communication and administrative skills and the ability to pick up new systems quickly. If you have a passion for working with the utmost care and detail, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with your CV and salary details.
