Come and join DFS as a Trainee Service Upholsterer

Category: Recruitment

Come and join DFS as a Trainee Service Upholsterer Here at DFS, we continue to invest heavily in our accredited training programmes – and to develop our people in every part of our operation across the country. That means you’ll have all the skills you need to do the best job. And because we look to promote from within wherever possible, your contribution can bring you the career prospects you deserve.

If you want to learn and grow within a company that invests in you - DFS is the place to be!

Here at DFS we’re looking for Trainee Service Upholsterers to join our team. From fixing zips and recliner mechanisms, to wood work/leather touch-ups and reupholstering a chair, no job is the same and each day will be different.

We've designed a six-month reskilling programme, bespoke for this role, in which a dedicated mentor will take you through a comprehensive training regime. Once completed, you’ll be ready to head out on your own to meet with our fantastic customers.

The six-month training period for this role will take place in Doncaster, although we’re open to where you’ll be based once fully trained - whether it be London, Scotland, or anywhere in between. Please note that you will be ‘based’ at one of our distribution centres and need to service customers throughout that area.

To help Service leavers access this opportunity, we're offering a two week, no obligation civilian work attachment through the Career Transition Partnership – helping you understand what the role entails before making a final decision. If upon completion you decide to continue on with the full six-month programme, you’ll be paired with an experienced and dedicated Service Upholsterer to support your onboarding journey.

Due to the nature of the training provided for this role, there is no requirement for previous experience! And so we invite all Service leavers to apply.
