Do you live in Dubai and love to liaise with international design firms? Are you passionate about textile and interior design? We are looking for you!

Design Consultant UAE in Dubai

You:

  • Are a real connector
  • Have a passion for design
  • Enjoy interacting with renowned international design professionals
  • Know a thing or two about textile design and rugs and carpets in particular
  • We love enthusiastic personalities
  • You live in Dubai and love to travel and meet all kinds of interesting people
  • Having some practical experience will certainly work in your favor
  • Are fluent in English; it would be great if you know any other languages as well
  • Seeing as you will be working with our design team based in the Netherlands a lot, you do not have a nine-to-five mentality

We:

  • Are an international family business where we work hard
  • Have a passion for beautiful interior products
  • Like travelling and are interested in other cultures
  • Want to do our bit for society and do this by means of Care & Fair and the Dutch Cancer Society KWF
  • Are serious when it comes to our work, but feel that having fun is also very important
  • Have the ambition to be the world’s number one within our area of expertise
  • Dream big, but see personal contact as a basic condition

The Job:

You typically spend your day meeting with clients to understand their briefs and discuss how we can make their carpet and rug designs and ideas come to life. You discuss the possibilities in techniques and qualities and advise the client on colours from the pom box to ensure we achieve the best result and meet their expectations with the first artworks and samples. You’re an important link in the design development and accurately and efficiently pass your findings onto the design team in the Netherlands or the project manager involved. Besides visiting existing clients to see if we can be of any help, you actively look for new opportunities with new clients and can give an enthusiastic presentation about the company and our products. Visiting client events is important for new leads, so you’re always present. When the final product is finished, you check up on the installation and the client’s satisfaction. Happy and over the moon clients is what we strive for every day.

I love meeting clients and sharing my knowledge and experience with them to make their ideas come to reality. We choose colours and techniques together and I consult on the best approach for designing and making these carpets to meet their expectations and satisfy their visions. It's especially satisfying to receive positive feedback from interior designers that we work so closely and intensely with.’
