Our move into our new and improved home in September 2017 has been a success. Manufacturing space increased by 60% and alongside that our office space grew too, but all those new desks were not made to lay there empty.

Our company is growing fast and we needed to fill those seats with some fresh faces. We truly believe we provide some great opportunities here at Thorpes with strong company values and a work ethos like no other.

That is why we recently welcomed THREE new members to the office team at Thorpes HQ

Say hello to…


Richard - Contracts Manager

Richard is no stranger to Thorpes Joinery having previously worked for us back in Great Glen many moons ago. Starting his career as a bench joiner, he moved his way through the ranks into Estimating and onto Project Management and Surveying.

After gaining several years of experience with us Richard made the move to France, spending two years working for Christian Prugent - a specialist shop fitting company.

Since then he has returned to the UK and has gained further experience in various roles - including director; within the specialist joinery market. He now boasts over 20 years experience.

We welcomed Richard back to Thorpes in October 2018 as a Contracts Manager.


Paul - Draughtsman

Paul started his journey studying a degree in 3D Furniture Design at Loughborough University. After graduating Paul began his career by learning the fundamentals of joinery in the workshop before becoming a site engineer.

Wanting to further his career and his ambition for design Paul gained a City & Guilds Auto CAD qualification which soon landed him a job in Nottingham as a Draughtsman for a shop fitting firm.

Since then Paul has continued to build his career and experience working in Project & Technical Design for a number of joinery companies and we welcomed him into our Design department as a Draughtsman in December 2018.

Tamsin’s interest in Marketing was sparked whilst studying her A-levels in Business, Communication & Culture and Media. Since then she has built her experience base through various opportunities in previous job roles. The majority of Tamsin’s knowledge and skill in the industry is self-taught from running her own successful blog, social media platforms and fitness website.
