Full-time

Location

Full job description

Working closely with the small team of designers and in-house fitters we are looking for somebody who can advocate our ethos of providing informed and balanced advice, delivering truly bespoke designs and striving to maintain the excellent quality of service we are renowned for.

The role incorporates all of the usual fundamentals of a KBB sales designer position whilst uniting elements of the management of the project, so is ideal for somebody who enjoys seeing a project from design through to completion:

  • Engaging with potential customers in the showroom.
  • Carrying out detailed home surveys and showroom-based design consultations.
  • Producing designs, translating the designs into CAD images & quotations and presenting these to customers in the showroom.
  • Following up on leads and quotations in order to gain the sale.
  • Managing projects including being the main point of contact for the customer from survey through installation to sign-off, placing orders, communicating fitting schedules and liaising with suppliers and subcontractors.
  • Taking ownership of any queries or issues from customers and suppliers as they arise and liaising with the team to ensure swift resolution.

The ideal person is a passionate designer, pro-active, organised, accurate and commercially astute with excellent CAD skills and an inherent drive to gain a sale whilst delivering top quality customer service. You will either have proven experience as a sales designer in the independent KBB industry and/or a degree in an interior design related field. Most of all, you are confident and comfortable working within the luxury end of the market and are a flexible team player willing to work as an integral part of the team effort.

We also invite applications from design graduates early in their KBB sales design career who are eager to learn and develop on the job.

The Company is an independent family run business established in 1970. With a focus upon high-end bespoke design, we specialise in the installation of quality fitted kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms within the South Hampshire area and have a large showroom in Southampton from which this role will be based.
