The Furniture and Interiors Education, Skills and Training Alliance launches website

The new website, from FIESTA, has been launched to support its mission of addressing education and training issues within the furniture and interiors industry.

Launched in 2017, FIESTA is a trade association comprised of eight organisations that represent different sectors of the furniture and interiors industry. It aims to encourage and inspire new talent to join the industry, ensuring relevant training and qualifications are in place to support them. The association’s new website features useful information for employers and people wishing to pursue a career in the industry, alongside case studies, the latest news from the organisation and an events section.

Speaking of the website Gary Baker, FIESTA chairman, said, “The new FIESTA website will be a hub for both companies within the industry that need guidance on key areas of training and individuals interested in finding out more information about the many opportunities the sector offers. The UK has a thriving furniture and interiors sector with 8,000+ businesses employing over 250,000 and generating £11 billion to the UK’s GDP. It is a design-led industry that contains many world-beating businesses. For the sector to continue to grow it is essential that it continues to attract the very best talent, from school leavers and graduates to anyone looking for a fulfilling and varied career.”
