Junior Lighting Designer

We’re looking for a complete newbie to join our practice at Elektra. We are a long-established (22 years) award winning lighting consultancy based in London. With projects all across Europe and the Middle East, our work focusses on Hotels, Retail, Exterior and more.

Currently we’re working flexibly from home but we do have a main office in Holborn we expect to return to on a part-time basis. Note that – major plus – for the last 3 years we’ve adopted revolutionary working practices and work a full time 35-hour week spread over Monday to Thursday. Yes, Fridays are off, every week. We also have an in-house training programme and full supervision if this isn’t enough for you.

If you want to come and work with us you need to be enthusiastic, hardworking, creative, and self-motivated. We give you the training and the means necessary but you need to repay us by working independently and hard.

It’s a junior position so no experience necessary. But ideally, you’d have as many of these as possible:
– Masters degree in Lighting Design
– Degree in something related (interior design, architecture) or just really cool and random
– Experience in AutoCAD, Revit, InDesign, Photoshop, Dialux. We can teach these if you don’t know them but some is better than none.
– Some sort of interest or experience in lighting design
– Multiple languages useful
Note: Just to be completely clear; we are not product designers. We don’t design light fittings, in the same way that architects do not design bricks. We create well-lit architectural spaces using light.

We are committed to equal opportunities. You must be eligible to work in the UK, we cannot get a work visa for you so please don’t waste your time. Independent applicants only, please. No agency appointments considered.

Please send your CV and portfolio immediately:
