Commercial Kitchen Manager - London - up to £50,000 (V03874)

more >>

Our client is one of the world’s leading artisans in professional home kitchens. They create handcrafted pieces in their renowned sleek industrial style, each kitchen showing off a bespoke design with sophisticated mechanisms.

Their UK Showroom is based centrally in London and is by appointment only. Their clients are mainly commercial and include Architects, Interior Designers, Joinery Manufacturers and Developers from all over the UK and Ireland.

They have a newly created role for a Commercial Manager to handle the client's projects from brief through to installation. This would particularly suit a  kitchen designer whose career has moved onto Project and Account Management with a stronger commercial element.

Your remit will be to oversee all commercial aspects and the logistics of the orders. It will start with talking through the brief with the client and putting together an initial plan of the design. On order acceptance these drawings will then be sent to Head Office to be fully drawn up and the manufacturing drawings produced as required for the factory. You will then be overseeing the project through to installation. 

Although the role will be based in the Showroom you will be required from time to time to carry out site visits as well as nurturing business relationships and future business. Leads will already have been qualified so this is not a "sales" role but one of coordinating the client through the initial enquiry, sales process to installation and completion of project.

Skills and experienced for the Commercial Manager role:

  • In order to have the gravitas and knowledge base you will need at least 8 years' experience within the luxury kitchen marketplace
  • Literate with the Adobe Suite and ideally AutoCAD
  • Strong Project Management skills
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Professional and smart in appearance
  • Proactive, self-motivated and organised

Salary is negotiable, but likely to be between £40k to £50k plus travel and business expenses. There will also be occasional trips to Head Office in Italy (when permitted again).

If this sounds like you then please email us with your CV to and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
