‘’The industry needs new and emerging talent like you’’ - Chris Hyde, Chairman: Education and Training Committee, The Furniture Makers’ Company.

We have some great case studies for you to watch to find out what interests you. Featuring those who have once been at the start of their journey, like you are now, wondering how to find their place in the industry.

We have put together a training database to explore what skills you need and where to get them. The training centres are very helpful for providing further guidance and have open days for a visit. They offer a wide range of options from study programmes with qualifications, non-qualification professional courses, apprenticeships, evening and Saturday classes and degree programmes.

The jobs board will help to discover the different roles and opportunities near to you. There are many available options in this broad industry. It is not just about technical skills but also service skills like buying or sales.

We are a very friendly industry where people are looked after and further developed as they design, make and service households or commercial environments with beautiful products. Whatever your skills there is a place for you in the furniture and furnishings industry. Please use this website as a starting point and then speak to someone to discover more.
