Kitchen Designer - Maternity Cover

Chichester - Contract, full-time

The role

Our Story

Founded in 1996 by friends John Sims-Hilditch and Giles Redman, Neptune design and make pieces for your whole home. Recognised for their exacting standards, design-led aesthetic and expert craftsmanship, they’re perhaps most known for kitchens – with heirloom-worthy dressers not far behind. Neptune’s trademark ‘look’ is British: refined, simple, sturdy, and with an almost obsessive attention to detail. They’re also respected for their commitment to craft and quality. Put simply, they make things they’re proud of, and that are designed to last a lifetime.

Sharing its name with our first-ever collection, Neptune Chichester is set within a converted stable block, nestled among lakes and open countryside in the neighbourhood of the South Downs National Park and Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You’ll find a lovely balance of heritage and country, inside the store and out, with striking pitched ceilings and beautifully landscaped gardens offering the perfect place to sit back, relax and take in your surroundings.

Across all locations, we stay united by our company values: Do The Right Thing, Do It Together, Aim High and Keep It Real.

About this Role

As we continue to grow we are looking for a Kitchen Designer to work with our driven and enthusiastic team. 

Designing a kitchen is like throwing a party, you want to create the mood, get the ingredients right, make sure there is a flow of people and room to prepare space to dine, drink and dance. Our designers think about how it will be used and who will be using it. Whether it’s the dream of reluctant gourmet or budding chef, or for a hungry family of four, we design to reflect these differing requirements.

  • Arrange in-store consultations and home visits to find out all requirements
  • Create, present and exchange thoughts on innovative design schemes

  • Update and maintain accurate customer records using a number of software packages
  • Manage multiple projects ensuring seamless communication and coordination throughout
  • Actively contribute to the growth and development of the store
