We offer a relaxed working environment in a pleasant studio, (Grade II listed building), a competitive salary, (dependent on qualifications, experience and ability) and the opportunity for career progression with a wide variety of design challenges! This is a great opportunity for someone wishing to get lots of hands on experience at all stages of projects to achieve the Part 3 qualification. We can help you every step of the way!
