Job Description


An exciting and rare opportunity for a graduate or someone wishing to change direction, to begin a fulfilling and highly rewarding career in a specialist sector by training and working with the UK’s leading veneer merchants.

Mundy Veneer: It’s about hard work, fun and excellence in absolutely everything we do.

Passionate about wood veneer, we stock hundreds of types and species and ensure we work closely to build relationships with our clients, helping them source the best veneer for their unique projects. Our core values through all aspects of our business are integrity, excellence and friendliness from the quality of the veneer that we supply to the way that we look after our customers.

The Role: There’s no cold calling or pushy sales techniques, it’s about building relationships.

As part of the team you will experience every aspect of our business and culture. You will be talking to our wide range of customers, from small furniture makers to international architects and designers, making sure we always deliver the very best service. You will also spend time in our warehouse learning about wood veneer, how it is produced, the unique characteristics of each species as well as how we deliver our customers’ orders on time and in line with their expectations.

To assist your knowledge and understanding of veneer you will have the opportunity to travel abroad to visit some of our key suppliers. As your knowledge, experience and understanding of the business increases you will also be expected to travel throughout the UK selling to customers and in time assisting in sourcing the veneer internationally.

The Candidate:  Do you have energy, high standards and ambition?

This is a fast paced role in a company which values the relationships it builds with clients and suppliers. You must be personable and socially confident, with some interest in wood and an awareness of design and interiors. You must be intelligent, curious and an excellent listener and communicator both verbally and in writing. We want self-starters with energy and sales flair who thrive on working with veneer experts as part of a successful team that aims to consistently exceed its customers’ expectations and targets.

Working hours: 08:00-17:00 Monday to Friday

Salary range:  £21k starting + career potential

Benefits:   A fun, hardworking but happy work environment, 22 days holiday and in time when we need you to be out and about, a company car.
