We have an opportunity for an enthusiastic technically minded junior furniture designer to join a design-led manufacturer of vanity units, wardrobes and dressing rooms designed for housebuilders, main contractors and developers. With the mark of the FSD, all their wood based products are from sustainable sources. They have invested heavily in a state of the art biomass plant which recycles all their wood waste and uses it to heat the factory. This means minimal landfill and reduced fossil fuel usage.
Responsibilities for the Junior Furniture Designer will include: Designing products on the CAD system from client specifications; Modelling components on AutoCAD; Producing drawings from models; Producing costings from models; Producing manufacturing data from CAD; Thoroughly checking all work at every stage; Liaising with clients to co-ordinate design / installation including other trades.
Full training on Imos CAD system, AlphaCAM CAD system and AutoCAD can be given where required.
With a degree in Furniture Design or related subject you’ll have a good understanding of furniture construction (ideally fitted) and be fluent in AutoCAD. You’ll be able to produce accurate technical drawings (good hand sketching skills would be an advantage) and be a keen and enthusiastic team player.
