  • An ability to create sample boards for client presentations.
  • An understanding of controlling budgets, as well as an enjoyment of “problem solving” and fulfilling proposed concepts within budget.
  • An ability to work as part of a larger team, but also independently on projects where required.
  • An ability to hit the ground running and be self motivated, supported by their previous experience taking ownership of the FF&E on projects.
  • Excellent written, visual and verbal communication skills, for succinctly communicating concepts and information to a variety of people involved in the project: in house, external 3D visual artists, clients and contractors. Strong English is essential.
