Graphic Designer

Posted: 31 July

Full-time, permanent

£25,000 plus bonus

Thame based (OX9 2DT) with hybrid working

This is an ideal opportunity for someone with a digital design interest, qualification or experience, who is looking for a small company with big expansion plans where they can take on immediate responsibility and future progression.

We are Standapart Limited, specialising in designing and installing room acoustic solutions. Our enviable client list includes many large global blue-chip companies in a variety of industry sectors including tech, gaming, finance, law, fashion, retail and education.

Our core role as a business is to improve the acoustic sound quality within meeting rooms, collaboration spaces and classrooms. This enables companies to communicate over video with their clients and allows universities to stream lectures over video to their students, all reducing the need to travel, which in turn helps reduce their carbon footprint.

Having developed a niche route to market, filling a void between interior designers and AV integrators, we have experienced considerable growth in demand for our services since the pandemic.

This Graphic Design role presents an ideal opportunity to break into commercial interior design and develop valuable knowledge and experience around project implementation.

Under initial guidance, you will develop the skills to use pCon.planner, taking on responsibility for configuration of appropriate layouts of acoustic treatments, whilst interpreting and maintaining compliance with corporate branding guidelines.

Once you've mastered this, there will be plenty of opportunity to visit client sites throughout the UK and abroad, to survey and assess conference rooms, classrooms, collaborative learning spaces and open plan office areas.

We're looking for someone who can demonstrate an eye for creative design and awareness of current design trends. Some relevant qualification and/or previous experience of CAD or other design software is preferable but not essential, as we can train you on pCon.planner if you have the desire and ability to learn new technology.

Once established in the role, you'll work more and more under your own initiative; taking design briefs from clients and through to finished presentations for discussion and agreement.

The role will be hybrid, requiring some travel, and there's a bonus scheme to reward input into the successful delivery of each project

Search Standapart in Thame to learn more about us then send your CV and a brief covering letter to steve@standapart.co.uk

If we like what we see then we'll be straight back to you with an initial interview.
