You may not have heard of Whitemeadow before, but we’re sure you’ve sat on one of our sofas at some point! That’s because we supply high quality sofas and upholstered beds to the leading furniture retailers across the UK. Whitemeadow are also the largest privately owned manufacturer in the UK with sites in Sutton in Ashfield, Huthwaite and South Normanton.
Our mission at Whitemeadow is to constantly strive to lead in our industry, both in terms of product and people. We’re proud of the work we do and the people who work for us. First and foremost, we always want to recruit talented people that align well with our values and ways of working. This vision takes a multi-disciplined workforce, each with a ‘right first time’ attitude and skills that contribute to pushing us ahead of our competition.
Most companies exist to simply make and sell product. We’re different. We exist because we believe in inspiring, impressing and innovating.
We have an exciting opportunity for individuals with the desire to gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to train as an ‘Upholstery Sewing Machinist’ as part of our fast-paced manufacturing teams on a permanent, full-time basis.
This is a fantastic opportunity to start building a rewarding career in a trainee role, where you will earn as you learn. You will be trained using a variety of machinery producing items of soft furnishings including sofas, chairs and beds working with a vast range of materials and designs. The 9-month (approx.) course is ideal for those that enjoy practical, hands-on work with a good eye for detail. You’ll have the drive and initiative to succeed with the enthusiasm to learn and enhance your current skillset.
