Part-time curtain/blind maker

Employees sewing fabric in our workshop

The role

I’m looking for a curtain/blind maker to join our happy and enthusiastic team. Experience would be an advantage, but full training is given working alongside experienced colleagues. The right candidate will have a can-do attitude, a willingness to learn, be a good team player, enthusiastic, creative and hard working.

Based in our workshops in beautiful Mellow Farm in Dockenfield in Surrey, the role is part-time (3 days per week) but could become full-time.

There will be an initial training wage which normally rises to full pay after a period of 6-8 months.

Our company

Started in 1999, the company is now a team of 10 people and we’re continuing to grow. We’re small enough to give a personal, professional service but we’re large enough to take on large volumes of work and deliver it perfectly and on time.

Our customers can meet us at our new showroom in central Farnham that’s full of fabrics, wallpapers and pattern books. Just a few miles away, all our work is made by us in three workshops.

We are official stockists of products from most major brands including GP&J Baker, Osborne & Little, Colefax & Fowler, Zoffany, Nobilis, Romo, Ian Mankin and the Designers Guild.

You can see some examples of our work here and also over on Instagram.
