The Furniture Makers’ Company is accepting nominations for its Young Professional Industry Experience. The programme, which is resuming in 2024 after a four-year hiatus, provides aspiring young people working in the industry a unique opportunity to visit sector-leading companies and understand all areas of the wider trade, including materials, designing, manufacturing, pricing, marketing, sales and customer service.

It is aimed at young professionals, with three years or less experience in the industry, who have shown promise and would benefit from the opportunity of gaining a 360-degree perspective of the entire trade.

Eight young people will be selected to take part in the tour of over 20 companies, which will include masterclasses with businesses including Axminster Tools, Hypnos, Miller Knoll, Ocee & Four Design, Panaz, SATRA and the Sylva Foundation.

The deadline for applications is Friday 16th February.
