Remote working, UK
Digital modeller/visualiser
at Alex Chinneck Sculpture Studio

Alex Chinneck Studio is recruiting a digital modeller/visualiser to join its team remotely in the UK.

We are seeking to hire a 3D visualiser/digital modeller with a broad skillset to support the development and delivery of the artist’s sculptures and public artworks. We are open to discussing employment on a freelance or part-time PAYE basis (up to three days a week).

The artist’s studio has created some of the most high-profile public artworks of the past decade. We are known for introducing the illusion of fluidity to typically inflexible objects. Often working on an architectural scale, the work is complex and ambitious, requiring the involvement of multi-disciplinary and multi-sited teams.

We use digital modelling to explore and push the sculptural boundaries of different materials, ranging from small castings to very large structures. We like to think of it as a creative and collaborative working relationship that will always present new but enjoyable challenges.

The successful applicant will be responsible for providing the studio with CAD support across all stages of our projects, from ideation and concept development to fabrication drawings and online promotion. Working remotely, they will help us to visualise and communicate our ideas with clients, fabricators and the public, using a range of digital skills, software and platforms.

  • ability to create files for pattern makers and five-axis machining

  • strong time management skills, with the ability to independently structure your time and meet deadlines
