We have a vacancy for a bright, passionate and highly organised individual to join the decoration department at our friendly studio in Bloomsbury. This position will be ideal for someone at the beginning of their design career, looking to gain experience within an established team.

Our ideal candidate will be a kind and hard-working multi-tasker who is willing to learn and work flexibly within a team, with strong attention to detail and a conscientious and proactive approach to all areas of duty.

We are looking for someone that will support the whole team with enthusiasm, care and attention. They will have an appreciation of working in a busy, creative environment and find pleasure in being productive and getting things done.

The role will primarily be responsible for general administrative duties and day-to-day office tasks including but not limited to:

  • answering telephone calls in a polite and professional manner, transferring calls and taking clear and accurate messages
  • receiving and distributing post/deliveries; franking outgoing mail and taking items to the Post Office
  • organising couriers and taxis
  • maintaining the tidy appearance of the studio and kitchen
  • keeping the design library of books, samples and materials in order

  • organising deliveries, storage and logistics
  • producing accurate and detailed meeting minutes
  • supporting designers on site visits as necessary
  • ordering samples and purchase order tracking
  • updating internal documents and schedules
  • welcoming clients and providing refreshments

A good working knowledge of Microsoft Office is imperative, and experience of Vectorworks, InDesign, Photoshop and EstiMac are advantageous, but not essential.

A good understanding of VAT and basic budgeting and accounting is welcomed. Experience working or studying within a similar environment with a good understanding of spatial planning, FF&E and basic knowledge of industry suppliers and makers will be beneficial.

Please send your CV and covering letter to stevie.mackinnon-smith@benpentreath.com. Portfolios are also encouraged.
