|Title||Account Manager & Project Manager, London|
|Salary||£35,000 to £45,000 plus expenses and pension|
Our client is one of the world’s leading artisans in professional home kitchens. They create handcrafted pieces in their renowned sleek industrial style, each kitchen showing off a bespoke design with sophisticated mechanisms. Their UK Showroom is based centrally in London and is by appointment only. Their clients are mainly commercial and include Architects, Interior Designers, Joinery Manufacturers and Developers from all over the UK and Ireland. They have a newly created role for an Account Manager & Project Manager that would particularly suit an interior designer or kitchen designer whose career has moved onto Project Management with a stronger sales element.
Your remit will be to oversee all commercial aspects and the logistics of the orders. It will start with talking through the brief with the client and putting together an initial plan and layout of the design. On order acceptance these drawings will then be sent to Head Office to be fully drawn up and the manufacturing drawings produced as required for the factory. You will then be overseeing the project through to installation.
In order to have the gravitas and knowledge base you will need at least 8 years’ industry experience plus a background in Interior Design or Kitchen Design. With an excellent understanding of the luxury bespoke kitchen marketplace you’ll be Adobe CS and ideally AutoCAD literate. You’ll need strong Project Management skills alongside excellent communication and presentation skills. Professional and smart in appearance you’ll also be proactive, self-motivated and organised. There will also be occasional trips to Head Office in Italy (when permitted again).
Salary is £35,000 to £45,000 plus expenses and pension. Please contact Pippa Baker on 01920 486125 for further details, or simply forward your application and CV / portfolio to email@example.com. You can also apply via our website www.careersindesign.com/design-jobs/1149.
