Upholsterer - Conservation Studios, Windsor

1st April 2021 by BAFRA

It’s carefully reviving pieces rich in history

It’s being trusted to deliver. And it’s the satisfaction of caring for an irreplaceable collection. This is what makes a career with the Royal Household so different.

The collection of furniture spanning across our locations is truly diverse, with many unique and historically significant items. What’s more, it’s a working collection; many of the items are in regular use.

Joining our talented upholstery and soft furnishings team, you’ll work on a wide range of traditionally upholstered furniture projects.

Based at our new workshops in Windsor, but also working across sites with items in situ, the rich diversity of conservation and restoration needs will stretch you.

You’ll be encouraged to develop your practical skills on the job whilst delivering projects to exceptional standards with defined deadlines.

You’ll oversee the production of varied traditional upholstery schemes, considering latest industry methods, quality standards, comfort and the timescales needed to ensure beautiful results every time.

You’ll liaise with colleagues to understand wider operational needs, and a key challenge for you will be to balance conservation and restoration projects with the busy activities of the working palaces.

You’ll be encouraged to broaden and invest in your practical skills. And knowing that you're helping to preserve a collection that will be enjoyed by future generations will continue to drive you.
