Created by Dezeen, the world’s most popular and influential architecture and design magazine, Dezeen Awards is one of the biggest and most popular awards programmes in the architecture, interiors and design industry.

This year, we will be launching a Chinese edition of the awards programme and are looking for an outstanding person to help launch, manage and grow Dezeen Awards in China.

Reporting to our China editor, chief content officer and chief revenue officer, responsibilities will include:

  • overseeing and delivering the Chinese edition of Dezeen Awards

We want someone who is well-organised with a keen eye for detail. You should have strong analytical, communication and project management skills, and perform with flair and accuracy in a fast-paced environment.
