Product Designer / Technical Designer - Berkshire - up to £25,000 (V03682)

more >>

This company is a leading manufacturer of high quality bespoke joinery offering total project management from initial site survey through to installation and are a fast growing company with a high level of repeat clients and new customers joining their portfolio continuously.

They are currently seeking a Technical Designer still at the early stages of their career to grow and develop within their team. You will be working with the technical design team taking concept designs and turning them into ready-to-manufacture technical drawings for the in-house joinery workshop. It involves working with a comprehensive range of materials and designs for high-end companies throughout the capital.

Objectives and requirements:

  • Producing complete and checked technical drawings using Solid Edge 3D design software
  • Manufacturing and pre-installation construction takes place in-house, so good communication is required between sales, project management, the design team, production and the joiners, to resolve any potential design and material issues
  • Take offs for CNC milling and other outsourced material production will also be required directly from the CAD drawings, so accuracy is vital
  • Liaising with joiners so at least some experience with manufacturing and furniture / joinery is needed
  • Participating in company and departmental discussions about improvements and innovation so a genuine interest in the marketplace and a keenness to take part would be expected

Competitive remuneration and 22 days' holiday minimum (increasing by 1 day every 2 years to a maximum of 25 days). Lunch is provided by the company and there is parking space on the premises.

As a leading recruitment agency for the design industry we at Careers in Design know that our clients are constantly on the look out for new and exciting applicants with a flair for the creative.

Graduate positions among design firms both large and small are an ideal way for a newly qualified designer to get their foot in the door of this ever-changing sector. Often it can be the first rung on a career ladder that will take you through more senior designer positions, through to project management and beyond, stretching, testing, and improving your own design skills as you progress.

Graduate jobs are usually junior posts and involve working as a member of a team. It’s unusual that you would be working on a company’s flagship product or in a highly creative role initially. It’s more likely that you will be involved in secondary or tertiary projects for the company where you have a chance to demonstrate your skills, whilst utilising a safety net.

Securing a graduate designer job can be more difficult than a mid-level appointment. Often you have little practical experience and are applying on the strength of your degree.

However, this is precisely what companies are looking for when they advertise for graduate vacancies in their firms. They want bright, enthusiastic, and creative young minds that are coming to the industry without any preconceptions. Fresh eyes and fresh ideas are a must along with a willingness to learn and work hard.

With limited experience, your CV needs to read well, in order to get you to that all important interview stage. By registering with Careers in Design you ensure that your CV is read by a real human being, not just stored in a database. We will help you make it as good an advert for your skills as possible, as well as matching you with graduate vacancies on our files.

Use the menu filters above to find the graduate positions we currently hold, and take the first step towards the career of a lifetime.
