The responsibilities of a Mid-Weight role include:

  • Production of presentations
  • Concept Development
  • Produce CAD drawing packages of layouts, bathroom, kitchen designs, lighting, small power and bespoke joinery elements
  • Produce product specification documents
  • Budgeting and quotes
  • To be client facing
  • Supplier liaison

The required individual should meet the following criteria:

  • Minimum 3-4 years working experience within Residential design
  • Commercial design experience advantageous
  • Interior Design/ Interior Architecture Degree essential
  • Understanding of the RIBA plan of work and work stages of the industry
  • An understanding of relevant building regulations advantageous
  • Experience in conceptual thinking, presentations and communicating ideas to clients and rest of the design team with confidence
  • The ability to design to a set budget and good negotiation skills
  • Must be able to develop the design of bespoke elements in more technical detail fit for site or costing purposes
  • Product knowledge for elements within bathrooms, kitchens, lighting and small power design
  • Experience in producing specification and schedule documents for above elements

  • Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint knowledge required
  • CSCS card is advantageous, if not obtained you will need to take part in training and test once joined the team to be able to attend site visits.

The candidate will shadow their Design Team Manager at first to understand Jigsaw procedures but will be expected to take on their own projects. Whilst taking direction from the Director and Manager, they will be working alone at times and as part of a team at others and therefore expected to have confidence with their own ideas. They will need to have a strong background and portfolio that showcases their creative works from concept through to completion of drawing packages.

Although based in Poole, they will at times be required to travel to the London Studio and within the UK to attend site meetings and visit suppliers; therefore, the ideal candidate will need to have their own vehicle as well as have the advantage of being flexible. They must be fluent in English to be able to liaise well within these meetings.

How to apply

Please email CV’s including references and portfolios to: with reference of “Mid-weight Poole” in the subject and we’ll get back to successful applicants. Candidates without portfolios illustrating conceptual designs, technical drawings and final photography of own designs will not be considered.

Thank you.
