We’re looking for a lighting designer to join our practice at Elektra.

US:
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 4-day week. Yes, Fridays are off, every week; we work a full time 35-hour week spread over Monday to Thursday. We also have an in-house training programme and team structure to encourage your development.

YOU:
We are on the search for an enthusiastic, hardworking, creative, and self-motivated individual to join our friendly team. We provide you the with training and any means necessary and in return expect you to work independently and hard, especially in the current lockdown
It’s a relatively junior position and would suit someone who’s got the basics and is looking to move on up to a second job. Some experience is needed so you can hit the ground running.
– AutoCAD and Photoshop is essential
– Previous experience in a lighting design studio is essential
and ideally, you’d also have as many of these as possible:
– Masters degree in Lighting Design
– Some knowledge of InDesign, Revit, Dialux and BIM. We can teach you the ones you don’t know
– Multiple languages always a bonus
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 so would especially love to hear from you if you are from any sort of minority, even if you don’t think you quite have everything it takes.
You must be a UK citizen or already have a work visa; we cannot get a work visa for you so please don’t waste my time and yours if you don’t have the right to work in the UK already. Independent applicants only, please, no agency appointments.

Please send your CV and portfolio immediately, marked “Application for lighting designer position” to:
