Careers With Us

To succeed in creating wonderful environments for our clients and their families to thrive in requires close collaboration between our teams within Guild Anderson as well as our clients and their design teams.

Our personal and friendly approach is important to us, and the results of our collective efforts are bespoke handmade kitchens, pantries, sculleries, and domestic working spaces which help country houses function seamlessly and look magnificent for lifetimes.

As we have grown and matured, we have found our feet and our focus. In more recent years we have attracted the attention of the owners of some of England’s finest country houses, including Castle Hill,

Buscot Park, Fonthill Abbey, Stockton House and Trewithen. Our teams now work in country houses of all sizes, and we are as happy designing into a cottage as we are a castle.

We are always interested in meeting kitchen designers, cabinet makers, project managers, fitters and anyone else who is interested in our work. We’d love to hear from you, even if you’re just curious, please do get in touch.

Our workplace is unique with our head office, design studio and showroom in Tisbury and our own furniture workshop on the Fonthill Estate.
