People

Ministry of Furniture are experts in the field of Furniture. We recruit and work with people who understand the demands of the furniture sector. We like to work with those in Education and other sectors every day; that way we keep up to date with change.

Our employment profile is very special too. More than fifty percent of our workforce are people with disabilities, both in our business office and within our manufacturing supply chain. Over many years, we’ve become experts in the development of people and have seen the positive effect it can have on society, lives and local economies.

At Ministry of Furniture, we pride ourselves in keeping one eye on the future. An apprenticeship programme has been put in place to train, develop and retain new talent. We actively encourage this approach from partners sharing similar social aims.

For years our team developed the knowledge and skills to work with people furthest from the job market, and we’re experts in managing programmes and routes back to work for those people. We aim to use as many companies with a similar ethos as part of our supply chain as we can.
