Designer - Maternity Cover

York - Contract, full-time

The role

Just a 20-minute drive from the centre of York lies the former Tanglewood public house, which, in September 2015, we restored and renovated to turn it into our Yorkshire home. Inside, not only will you discover living rooms, bedrooms and a kitchen (or four), but also a few added luxuries such as a snug, wine cellar, boot room and our always-in-bloom Flower Shop. Visit us at the weekend and you'll find broadsheets spread across our kitchen counter for you to put your feet up with.

Our Designers are interior and kitchen specialists who use their in-depth product and technical knowledge to create exciting designs for a room, two or even the whole home! They think about how to create a room that suits our customers' lifestyle, how to create the mood, how the room will be used and who will be using it. From Kitchen to Bedroom and all rooms in between, They want to get the ingredients right, make sure there is space to drink, dine, dance or relax.
