We're looking for an experienced Industrial Designer to join a West-London based inhouse Product team to lead industrial design innovation as well as work strategically for the evolution of the brand. As well as leading all hands-on NPD, you'll be driving product strategy as well as uncovering consumer and market insights to ensure a sustainable future. 

This brand is within mass-produced consumer products, and sustainability is now at the core of where the business is headed. We need a well-rounded, mindful Industrial Designer with experience in leading projects to work with the rest of the multi-disciplined team on developing a portfolio of new, sustainable, engaging designs for mass market within Europe.

Within the inhouse structure there are teams within design, formulation, packaging, brand/strategy and consumer insights. You'll therefore need to be collaborative and open to achieve the best product results. You'll need a keen interest in sustainable design, experience in consumer products (ideally mass produced), and a good understanding of materials and processes.

You'll need Solidworks and Adobe CS abilities to demonstrate your design thinking, and a good eye for detail and aesthetics. The office is based in West-London, and as the world goes back to normal it will be a mostly office-based role. (Office/WFH splits are do-able)
