Technical Designer (Contract)

27 July 2017.

To manage the influx of new projects coming in to our business, we are recruiting a Technical Designer on a 3-6 month fixed term contract. The successful candidate will work alongside our current Technical Design team and the new full time Technical Designer which we are also currently recruiting for.

Working on the technical details of pitches and project designs, our Technical Designers draw up the specialist details for client briefs, including ensuring that designs are technically and legally compliant. Based in our Wimbledon office, Technical Designers will also spend a significant amount of time discussing technical details with clients and visiting on-site. The technical design team is integral to the wider teams which design, build and furnish a wide range of projects. 

The role will be varied and challenging; you will be a dab hand in all aspects of technical office design, from detailing measurements to drawing up the construction pack, for example, to looking at furniture layouts and ceiling plans. Using your proactive attitude, you will need to be able to use your initiative to work without close supervision and reach tight deadlines, both alone and part of the wider design team. This includes asking for advice from the wider team, such as specialists and sub-contractors. You will be presentable, confident with good client skills as you will be required to meet and discuss briefs with clients at least weekly. Strong skills in AutoCAD, Sketch Up, InDesign and Photoshop are essential.
