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

We are seeking enthusiastic Trainee Upholsterers to join our G Plan Operations function.

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 part of our Upholstery team, you will work alongside your operational and distribution colleagues in our purpose-built Wiltshire manufacturing facility and head office. 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.

Within this fast-paced role, you will be responsible for the upholstery of our high-quality furniture to the correct methods and standards as set out by the company.

We always welcome applications from skilled upholsterers, however if you have previous manufacturing experience and an interest in learning a new skill, our dedicated trainers would be delighted to help you develop your talents. You will be dexterous, flexible, have a keen eye for detail and be a fast learner who enjoys working in a fast-paced environment.

If you have the passion and commitment to help us continue to manufacture our quality products, then we would love to hear from you.

In return we offer a guaranteed pay rate of £11.00 per hour. Once you are trained you will be paid by our piecework system which attracts an earning potential of up to £20.00 per hour.

Other benefits include 24 days annual leave (to be taken in company shutdowns) plus public holidays, pension scheme, life assurance, company sick pay, staff purchase scheme, cycle to work scheme, employee referral scheme and employee assistance programme.
