    Only down the road from me, If you have RR trained on your cv then your set really. Would be lovely working in that sort of environment but I think I’d get bored myself.

    For someone wonting to be a trimmer this is “the one”

    Maby a stage for 6 months will be cool :)

    it would be very interesting to deepen our leather knowledge in hands of such a renowned factory!…as jeffrey said 6 months… no more.
    It’s a great opportunity to young men to make a nice career

  4. Four years is definitely a big commitment. For trimmers who’ve already made strides in their career, it’s probably too long. But for newbies, it isn’t much and definitely worth the time investment.

    Just wondering, I attempted to apply for this opportunity… You have to first create an account on their web-site, which I tried, but it wouldnt accept my password that I created which resulted in an unsuccessful application… My question is, has anyone actually successfully applied? Any advice or help would be appreciated. Thank you
