The founders of Raft long ago recognised the lack of affordable, quality craftsmanship in furniture retail. Wanting to distance themselves from today's flat-packing and throwaway culture, Raft began to focus on challenging contemporary furniture manufacturing techniques, to produce sophisticated and chic furniture design. It is Raft's commitment to this concept that has led to its success.
Our team is as diverse as our products and everyone’s input is vital to the development of Raft. From start to finish, everything we do is in-house, from the design of the furniture, through to the manufacture by our skilled artisans, the delivery team who assemble your furniture on site and finally to the knowledgeable sales and customer services team. We believe our cooperative approach, combined with our commitment to quality, is what inspires loyalty from our customers.
We have achieved great success in the last 17 years and this is only the beginning. We will continue to remain innovative and strive for high ecological standards, while setting trends for others to follow.
Who We're Looking For
Following the success of our company-owned stores, we opened our first franchise in 2011. We have since opened successful franchises around the country and we opened our 10th store in Notting Hill, London in December 2016.
We are now seeking to appoint five further individuals who are strong team players. You must be dedicated and possess a willingness to learn.
You will not need any prior experience in the industry but you will need to show us that you have the skill, dedication and passion to get on with people at all levels, along with a drive towards success.
