Furniture Fabric Pattern Maker

If you are looking for the support of a national company and the security of working with an industry leader with over 50 years of trading, this opportunity could be the one you are looking for.


We are looking to train selected individuals to become Furniture Fabric Pattern Makers, whose job it would be to make furniture templates for our expert team of loose cover makers to turn into beautiful furniture covers. Loose covers may not be an industry that you know a lot about, but we can change all of that. So long as you can take accurate measurements, you can record information and you are willing how to learn a methodical templating system, using the materials that we provide, we would love to hear from you.


You would be required to visit each customer in their own home at a pre-booked date/time. When at the customer’s home, you would create the required furniture templates. You would then need to post the templates to us so that we can cut and sew them at one of our many manufacturing units across the UK. The covers would then be sent back to you for you to fit onto the customer’s furniture, again at a pre-booked date/time. Job done!


What do we provide?

  • We provide you with the training, enabling you to know the job inside
  • We provide a company vehicle
  • We provide you with all the tools and equipment needed for the role
  • We provide you with a phone.


What do you need?

  • A full, clean UK driving licence.
  • The ability to drive up to 2 hours between customers, set within a geographical area.
  • Like working with your hands, with attention to detail.
  • Good customer service skills.


No furniture templating experience is needed, as full training will be provided. However, those who hold upholstery, loose cover making or tailoring experience will be at an advantage.
