Are you a top notch Project Manager?

Project Manager

Carousel Lights is going places. Designing and producing stylish Feature Lights, our clients include The Royal Academy of Arts, Harvey Nichols and the BBC, and you may well have seen us in the national press or on the prestigious CoolBrands list. We’re growing fast and need a top notch Project Manager to join the team!

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

  • You’ll be handling all incoming queries from both the phone and email.
  • Customers range from individuals wanting lights for their home to design agencies wanting their branding in lights to art galleries, nightclubs, bars, exhibiton companies – you name it.
  • Some customers will have a specific design they’d like bringing to life, others will just have an initial idea and want ideas and support. You’ll guide them through the options and then propose design ideas and costs.
  • You may need to visit some clients. A bar may want to get your opinion on whether a neon would look best on the rear wall or in the front window for example.
  • You’ll end up with a detailed spec and will then liaise with suppliers to produce the lights.

 

WHO YOU ARE & HOW YOU’LL BE WORKING

  • Ideally, you’ll be working 5 mornings per week.
  • You’ll enjoy flexibility and want this job to fit around other commitments in your lfie.
  • You’ll probably have a good few years professional experience but are looking for a change.
  • The opportunity to join a small company with exciting clients and products really appeals to you.
  • You get quite excited when The Royal Academy rings you up to discuss an idea and six weeks later a neon light that you designed is hanging in their space.
  • Whilst you’ll be working with us every morning for the first month or so whilst you get up to speed, you could then be working wherever you choose and meeting up once a week.

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO ENJOY DOING

  • Building Relationships – You’ll spend a lot of time speaking to customers on the phone and email, discussing what they’d like and working through the process to produce it.
  • An Eye for Design – Whilst some clients have a clear idea of what they want, others will give you a very open brief. They may just send you their logo or idea and ask you how it can be turned into a light.
  • Attention to Detail – Once the initial design has been agreed, you’ll then need to make sure the detail is all spot-on. How will the client mount the light? What size holes are needed for the screws? Does the client want the cable to exit the light on the left-hand side or the right? Do they want a black or white plug? What can you do to make it absolutely perfect. This all matters.
