Design Manager - Retail (fixed term contract)
Aspirations to aim high! An exceptional opportunity has arisen for a Design Manager to work with a boutique creative agency specialising in retail and consumer spaces.
Over three decades, they have accumulated an impressive portfolio of international and UK clients, delivering highly successful commercial environments for high end beauty, clothing, lifestyle accessories and food and beverage brands.
The role will be a fixed term contract for 3-4 months.
They are looking for a capable and inspirational creative, with a strong track record of retail experience, either already in a Design Manager role or an Interior Designer who is eager to take their next career step to design management.
Working closely with client retail teams, airport, and landlord authorities, as a Design Manager you will be responsible for reviewing, coordinating, and compiling responses on concept design and brand construction detail packages, as well as the preparation of brand design guidelines, including statutory airport or landlord health and safety requirements. Project programme planning is essential as is an understanding of construction techniques of the retail environment.
High attention to detail, process driven and a strong communicator, as a Design Manager you will be pivotal to managing concept and design submissions and approvals, ensuring client guidelines and expectations are delivered.
Their office is based in south-west London, and while they offer hybrid working, they find that their super friendly, collaborative approach draws the team to being studio based much of the time.
