Head of Interior Design

Design & Build 
North-West England
£70-80k plus car, bonus and excellent package.

This is an outstanding opportunity to join a highly respected, marketing dominating but still highly innovative, design-led business. Customer profile ranging from SMEs right through to major Corporates and International Blue-Chips, they provide market-leading,  Design & Build and soft-construction solutions.

Through a team of consultants, designers and delivery specialists, they work with clients to not only create innovative, attractive solutions, but incorporate class-leading initiatives to improve efficiency and overall business performance whilst reducing operating costs; an approach that has seen them become the largest and most successful business in their sector.

Their focus on efficiency also extends to environmental and sustainability issues, but design and especially the strength of/innovation within that design is their kingpin USP.

Currently experiencing high levels of growth, a key step to further commercial development is the recruitment of a Head of Interior Design, who will not only be a key component in the business’s operations and performance, but will be a highly visible member of the senior management team….and whose work will be the ultimate showcase and demonstration of the groups market dominating capabilities.

This is a career-defining opportunity to not only take a key role in an exciting, well-regarded and market leading business, but to be a key part of the business’s future.

Design capability is already at the core of this impressive business. The appointee will take an active part in developing this capability yet further, from pitch to conclusion. This key executive will take responsibility for incorporating all aspects of the design process from creative to environmental, innovative designs through to pioneering commercial solutions. Bringing their own flair to the already high-performing and industry-renowned, award winning design team, taking client vision and ideas into strategies and tangible designs. This person will become an engine room of the business and the creativity behind their very best designs….as well as ultimately building and leading a team of design professionals.

They will also be a key source of motivation and inspiration not only within their team, but also within the wider business, constantly striving for further ground-breaking innovations and designs in all areas including creative, aesthetics, environment/sustainability impact and operational/commercial performance…challenging their delivery colleagues, and at the same time challenging convention (and the laws of physics).

Working with the SMT and the rest of the creative team, the appointee will be the custodian of the Interior Design capability and strategy.

Suitable candidates will be experienced and ambitious commercial sector interior designers, ideally (but not essentially) from a Design and Build background.

They will have had at least 5 years relevant commercial and have an excellent portfolio of projects demonstrating creativity, flair and an overall passion for design. They will have already been given the opportunity to do things differently, and will have relished the experience, leaving them hungry for more.

They will have at least some exposure to the commercial interiors sector, working to tight deadlines, innovation creative expectations and CAD experience. 3D Max visualisation skills are not essential, but are desirable, likewise a good knowledge of products and materials within the commercial sector.

Effective communication skills are essential. The appointee will be working with suppliers, contractors and clients alike. Market Leading collaboration and ‘Team player’ ability are vital to excel within this high-energy, high humour, ‘Work Hard/Play Harder’ environment.

High education qualification in Interior Design or Interior Architecture will make you stand out from the crowd.

Above all, they will be hungry to progress and have significant innovative and creative ability and desire, and be hugely excited by a very high paced environment, thick with USPs – this business’s technical strength is underpinned by a real ‘JFDI’ attitude.
