Experienced Upholsterer

About Slow:

At Slow, we’re on a mission to become the greenest sofa manufacturer in the UK;  we make high-end, timeless sofas and chairs designed and built to last a generation.   We are an ambitious family run business who have been making furniture for the last twenty years.   Based in the Yorkshire Dales, we’re on the lookout for a highly motivated individual to join our team as we transition and rebrand our business from Dalesbred to Slow.

We are based in Settle, a market town nestled between the Yorkshire Dales 3 peaks (30 mins drive from Skipton, Kendel, Nelson & Colne, walking distance from Settle station).   You will be needed in our workshop five days a week with the rest of our friendly team.

Overview:  We’re looking for an experienced upholsterer capable of taking full responsibility for working and overseeing all upholstery output while maintaining our exceptionally high standards expected at Slow.   You will play an essential role in managing the upholstery process and ensuring that we meet deadlines.   Excellent communication skills will ensure engagement with the wider team, and you have a strong sense of ‘ownership’ and the ability to multitask.   Whilst this is a fast-paced environment, this is not a senseless production line;  we believe in quality over quantity.   You will play a pivotal role in training the next generation of junior upholsters.   You will have a can-do attitude who is excited at the prospect of joining a business at a period of growth and looking to become pioneers in sustainably produced furniture.  A preference for Yorkshire tea is not essential for the role!

Key Responsibilities:-

• Upholstering new Slow frames;

• Helping with R&D of sofas and chairs;

• Managing material stock levels;

• Optimising and improving workshop workflow;

• Quality control over all upholstery;

• Training and managing junior upholsterers.


Skills and Experience:-

• Proven upholstery experience over a number of years;

• Experience in traditional and modern upholstery techniques;

• Excellent attention to detail;

• Great communication skills;

• Ability to work under pressure, quickly and confidently to meet production deadlines;

• Able to work independently or as part of a team;

• A positive ‘can do’ attitude and excellent work ethic;

• Experience training junior upholsters.


● We believe passionately that diverse teams help us make better products.  We’re committed to developing a diverse workforce and an inclusive working environment and welcome people of all ages, stories and backgrounds;

● We love to have fun in all that we do;

● We are constantly learning and looking for people that have a desire to learn;

● Sustainability sits at the heart of everything we do.

FIESTA – The Furniture and Interiors Education, Skills and Training Alliance

Press release

13 June 2017

Let the FIESTA commence

Trade associations from across the UK furniture and interiors industries have united under a single banner, the Furniture and Interiors Education, Skills and Training Alliance (FIESTA), to combat the threat of a widening skills gap.

The new organisation aims to unite and inspire furniture and interiors businesses, helping the industry to become a sector of choice within the UK by facilitating internationally recognised skills development.

FIESTA will provide a forum that allows its stakeholders to identify, clarify, promote and engage with all issues and needs relating to education, training and skills for people of all ages and businesses of all sizes across the furniture and interiors industry.

The alliance will be employer-led and bring the industry together through an inclusive approach. It will aim to streamline skills provision to avoid duplication of resources and enable easy access to the highest quality education and skills training.

FIESTA will work with the British Furniture Confederation to communicate education and training needs to the government.

The trade associations represented at the first meeting, held at Furniture Makers’ Hall on Monday 22 May, were: The Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers, The British Contract Furnishing Association, The British Furniture Manufacturers Association, The Furniture Makers’ Company, The Kitchen, Bedrooms, Bathrooms National Training Group, The Kitchen, Bathroom, Bedroom Specialists Association, The Kitchen Education Trust and The National Bed Federation.

The need for a dedicated industry forum to identify and discuss education and training requirements was proposed at The Furniture Makers’ Company’s Bridging the Gap Apprenticeship Levy conference and welcomed by professionals from across the UK furniture and interiors industry.

Gary Baker, managing director of CDUK, the distributor of Corian® in the UK and Ireland, has been appointed as chairman of the new alliance.
