What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
In particular for my role it states coming from a design background would be a great help. However as a design manager/co-ordinator you will not be designing buildings etc, so if you have done a degree in Architecture, your fancy drawing skills will be wasted.
However working in Design Management offers more scope within the business to diversify into different roles and the benefits are much better than an Architect also.
Do you have any interview tips?
Make sure your portfolio is well presented and I would definitely rehearse what to say for each drawing you show etc. Also make sure to be yourself, yes you maybe brilliant, but if the employer thinks you might not fit into the office environment then all that brilliance is wasted.
So always be yourself and make sure you practise and research the company, you can't go much wrong.
