Elektra Lighting Design has an immediate vacancy for a junior lighting designer in London.
We are an independent design consultancy working mainly in hospitality and retail. 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.
Our current workload includes hospitality, retail, workplace and other projects in 17 countries across three continents. Dealing with projects from conception to completion, you will learn through working alongside senior experienced lighting designers on complex projects, as well as our regular training sessions. This is an exciting opportunity for candidates with no to little experience in lighting or lighting-related fields to join the team.
You need to have a university degree in lighting design or architecture, interior design, product design or similar (or even just something really cool and random). Candidates should be proficient in as many of these as possible; AutoCAD, Photoshop, Microsoft Office, DIALux/Relux, Adobe InDesign and Revit.
Previous work experience in a lighting design consultancy is greatly advantageous and will get you a better salary, but not essential if you have other talents. You should be creative, independent, organised, have good presentation skills, self-motivated and hardworking, and above all have passion for lighting and design.
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.
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.
