Design Studio Manager / Space Planner

Our new London Design Studio is opening in Clerkenwell. We are looking for an exceptional individual to fill the dual role of Studio Manager and CAD designer, supported by two further designers (one onsite and one remote). 

Sven Christiansen plc is a well-established designer of high-quality office furniture, manufactured in our factory in the West Midlands. Our London Design Studio provides our dealers and their clients with an inspiring and creative space in which to view examples of our ranges alongside a comprehensive library of finishes, samples and images. 

This is a great opportunity and an exciting time to join the team. Our Studio Manager will oversee all aspects of the Design Studio, supporting our Area Sales Managers, welcoming and assisting visitors, providing information on our products, and maintaining the Studio diary and booking system for the meeting facilities. The Studio Manager will also have a backup role to our dedicated designers/space planners, creating office layouts in both 2D and 3D.

You need:

  •  A naturally cheerful and friendly personality
  • Exceptional communication skills
  • Self-confidence and a willing, ‘can-do’ attitude
  • To be organised and precise
  • An appetite to learn
  • A high level of competence using AutoCAD and Microsoft Office programs

Experience of space planning would be an advantage: some sales experience would be helpful but not essential. We use AccuRender/nXtRender for 3D renderings – training will be provided.

Salary flexible subject to experience and skill set: please give an indication of your expectations. 

The Studio opening hours are from 10.00am to 6:30pm, Mon-Fri, offering clients the opportunity to drop by after their normal working hours and avoiding rush hour travel for staff. The location is an attractive building opposite Smithfield Market, just 4 minutes’ walk from Farringdon Station. 

Sven Christiansen plc is a friendly, privately-owned British company, founded just over 40 years ago and employing around 200 staff. In addition to our factory (with showroom) and London Design Studio, we have a Head Office in Guildford and satellite showroom in Cumbernauld.
