Elektra Lighting is looking for a junior lighting designer to join its London-based team.
Based in central Holborn, London, award-winning architectural lighting design consultancy Elektra are seeking a creative and enthusiastic individual to join our talented and experienced team. Our current portfolio includes hospitality, retail, workplace and other projects in 31 different countries across four continents.
Dealing with projects from conception to completion, you will learn through working alongside senior experienced lighting designers on complex projects. This is an exciting opportunity for candidates with some experience in lighting or lighting-related fields to join the team. The position may require some European and further afield travel.
Ideally you would have: a university degree in lighting design or architecture, interior design, product design or similar. Or even just something really cool and random, as long as you can prove your interest in lighting design. Candidates should be proficient in as many of these as possible; AutoCAD, Photoshop, Microsoft Office, Dialux/Relux and Adobe InDesign. Previous work experience in a lighting design consultancy is greatly advantageous, but not essential if you have other talents. You should be creative, independent, organised, have good presentation skills, self-motivated and hard-working.
We are a close-knit, friendly and supportive team with an exciting working environment with a wide range of stimulating projects, personalised training and development, a competitive salary and a company pension scheme. Also we normally bake a cake for your birthday.
We are committed to equal opportunities. Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK; we will not be able to obtain a visa for you. Independent applicants only, please. No agency appointments considered.
Note: Just to be completely clear; we are not product designers. We don’t design light fittings, in the same way that architects do not design bricks. We create well-lit architectural spaces using light.
