Needle Rock is recruiting!
Needle Rock is recruiting! We are looking for a highly motivated upholstery craft and sewing machine assistant. If you love making things and are interested in fabrics and design; see what this job placement can offer you.
Ideally you will have used a sewing machine before. But, if you haven’t and are keen to learn, full training will be given. You will learn to use a variety of industrial sewing machines, as well as hand sewing with invisible stitches. You will learn the correct way to orientate and cut fabric, make piping, sew cushions, attach zips, and much, much, more. Check out the Galleries page to see a selection of the pieces we’ve repaired and restored to date.
The role is funded by Welsh Government through the Kickstart Scheme. It is open to 18 – 24 year olds in receipt of Universal Credit. It is based in Llanrhystud, a small village 8 miles south of Aberystwyth. The placement is for 25 hours per week, for a 6 month period. For the right candidate, there will be the possibility to progress onto an upholstery apprenticeship.
Ideally you will have your own transport, and although buses are feasible, you must be punctual. During the placement you’ll also receive statutory training in core skills, including personal development, time management, English, Maths and Literacy etc. delivered by Cambrian Training.
This is a life-changing opportunity
It could be the start of your career as a Professional Upholsterer. After an apprenticeship, you will be qualified to find employment with other upholstery companies or even work for yourself.
