  • Lead and inspire high quality design documentation from concept generation through tender to construction documentation
  • Work closely with the Design Director and the FF&E Associate at the concept stage and throughout the design documentation process to collectively deliver a cohesive project
  • Be a positive role model to your team, rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck into the detail

What they are looking for…

  • A meticulous designer with an eye for detail and an interest in high end hospitality projects
  • You want to be part of a team that works hard, supports each other and has fun along the way
  • Join one of the fastest-growing companies in the UK
  • Regular team get togethers, from our weekly drinks to our (pretty special!) bi-annual parties…we know how to have a good time!
  • Commercial awareness, an ability to deliver quality within the constraints of realistic budgets
  • Comfortable working in a client capacity, making sensible decisions for the good of the business
  • Someone highly organised and able to juggle multiple projects effectively with a positive attitude

  • Passion for hospitality – whether that’s a drink, a meal, an event or a bed for the night
  • You’re all about having a positive impact on the people you interact with, leaving them with a memorable experience
  • You’re not precious.
  • You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once

What’s in it for you…

  • Plenty of opportunity to progress and change it up across a diverse, global family of brands
  • Training and Development that helps you think, make and thrive at work
