Looking for an exciting career in retail?


At Sterling Furniture, we have a huge range of roles across the company – almost as varied and as diverse as our furniture ranges. Throughout Scotland (Aberdeen, Glasgow, Inverness, Dundee, Uddingston, Edinburgh and, of course, Tillicoultry) our furniture showrooms are, we believe, rather special and we continuously develop and improve on them. Branches host teams of managers, sales staff and administrators with the largest team based at Tillicoultry.


We are looking for talented, dynamic, motivated and committed individuals who take pride in their work. We are also always keen to meet strong candidates to work in our ever-expanding Homestores and restaurants in Tillicoultry and Aberdeen and horticultural staff for our Garden Centre in Tillicoultry.


Our Head Office is also based in Scotland, so in addition to the operations side of the business we have opportunities within accounts staff, purchase ledger, credit control, IT, stock control, buying, HR, supply chain and distribution, to name but a few. All current vacancies are listed below, but we also encourage you to write in 'on spec' as, within such a fast paced environment, we continue to grow and develop.


Please send your CV with details of your current package if possible:
1) by email to: HR@sterlingfurniture.co.uk or
2) by post to: Human Resources, Sterling Furniture, Moss Road, Tillicoultry, FK13 6NS.


Good luck with your application.
