We are looking for a new graduate and experienced designer (with a degree from the UK) to work for us in India for a minimum of 1 year (with a 2 week holiday back in the UK after 6 months) - this can be extended if you like it and we like you.
Over the last 10 years we have recruited many designers who are employed by us in the UK but actually live and work for us in India. You can talk to previous designers who have worked for us in this way to find out about their experiences before you decide to take the job. Many of them have returned to the UK and with this experience on their CV and have found excellent design jobs within the industry for example for Romo, Prestigious & Harlequin.
All that is required is that you have a degree in Surface Pattern, Weave, Embroidery or Print design with excellent drawing skills.
First interviews will take place with myself during March / Beg April and second interviews mid April.
