A great opportunity has arisen to join an iconic British brand and a dynamic team with big plans!

We are looking for a Frame CAD Development Trainee to join our G Plan Design and Development team at this exciting time of growth.

We’ve been around since 1953, so we know a lot about making the perfect sofa – but we certainly don’t just sit back and rest on our laurels. We strive to improve at every opportunity, driving the business forward and evolving the brand. We are guardians of our heritage but embrace the very latest in technology and innovation.

As a key member of our Development function, you will work alongside your operational and commercial colleagues in our purpose-built Wiltshire head office and manufacturing facility. The heart of the organisation, this is where we proudly hand-make every single G Plan sofa and chair. A G Plan sofa is an investment piece and our consumers know they are buying a sofa designed with the values of enduring comfort and quality at its core.

Reporting to the Design and Development Manager you will work with our experienced team to learn how to design and introduce wooden furniture frames and associated technical information into production using the CAD system and Excel.

Key skills required within this role are:

  • Previous experience within an administrative role.
  • Basic working knowledge of CAD
  • IT literacy, specifically Excel and Word
  • Numeracy skills and the ability to maintain good attention to detail
  • Enthusiastic, positive team player who demonstrates flexibility.
  • Used to working to tight deadlines.

Hours of work are 7:00 am – 4:00 pm Monday to Thursday and 7:00 am – 12:00 noon Friday.

In return, we offer a competitive salary and a range of benefits including 24 days annual leave plus public holidays, company sick pay scheme, company pension scheme and life assurance, cycle to work scheme and staff purchase scheme.
