The successful candidate will work closely with the Directors and the Jewellery Buyer, presenting innovative new ideas based on emerging trends. They will also work closely with our four showroom teams, incorporating their frontline client knowledge into their designs.
The new designer will collaborate with our creative team to create top quality designs for DMR collections, providing their own unique ideas to the design process. They will sketch original product ideas, working closely with our CAD department, selecting materials and colour based on current fashion and jewellery trends. They will research jewellery and fashion industry trends, accurately interpreting them for the brand’s aesthetic, presenting concepts to the creative team. The successful candidate will also review internal market research to analyse the performance of DMR collections.
We are seeking an enthusiastic designer with an understanding of fine jewellery, with both technical and illustrative sketching abilities. They should be a proficient user of CAD and specifically Matrix software, with strong computer skills. They must be able to relate well to their clients in order to understand design specifications, with a mixture of creative skills and commercial awareness. A technical knowledge of materials is important, understanding precious and semi-precious gemstones and metals.
Jewellery manufacturing experience is a plus, but not required. Any knowledge of 3D printing would be advantageous as you will be required to operate a 3D printer, although full training will be given.
Excellent prospects and highly attractive packages for the right candidate.
