Work with us
We are always interested in hearing from those who think they can bring something special to our team. If you are interested in a role at Richard Designs, contact us with your CV or view current vacancies.
Do you have an interest in sewing or craftwork?
We are looking for people who love sewing, crafts and making beautiful designs come to life. Creating a veil for a bride’s wedding is a special privilege, a piece that the bride will treasure for years to come. If you have a natural ability to work with detail and an enjoyment of sewing then we would love to hear from you. Qualifications are not essential, our staff vary from those with little formal training to those with degree level education. The main requirement is a dedication to work to the highest standard to create the very best possible items for our customers.
Age or Gender is not a barrier
We have a mixture of ages and genders working with us, and welcome all applications, whether you are just leaving school, returning to work after a break, or would love a career change. Many of our staff have worked with us for over 15 years, and some have joined after a long career elsewhere. We are always delighted to hear from anyone with an interest in sewing or craftwork, experience in a professional capacity is not essential and full training is given.
Sales, customer service and administration
We have an excellent team, and do not need to advertise regularly for staff in these departments. Where appropriate, staff from our other departments may be trained and promoted to take on new challenges. However if you have a special interest we would like to hear from you.
All eligible staff benefit from a 7% contribution paid into a professionally-managed pension scheme as part of their benefits package. We have a modern, climate-controlled building with plenty of free parking, disabled access and a lift. We offer all staff free tea and coffee, and have a light and bright space where you can take your breaks. All workstations are COVID safe and socially distanced. We run fundraising events such as bake sales, quizzes, competitions and raffles throughout each year for our Charity of the Year, which is chosen by staff.
Our location and working hours
We are based at Lancaster Way Business Park, which is approximately two miles from the centre of Ely. Due to our location, you will need to ensure that you have a reliable plan so you can travel to our premises each day. We operate a 37.5 hour working week Monday to Friday.
