Job description:
Design for Leisure are a specialist spa design and consultancy company who create some of the most exciting hydrothermal bathing experiences in the world. 

Mainly working in the 5 star luxury sector, our state-of-the-art projects are installed in spas, hotels and wellness resorts across the globe. They are specified using high-end materials and equipment appropriate for the most luxurious of builds.

We’re currently working on more than 40 projects, offering clients a highly specialised, technical spa and pool design service.

Working from existing schematic designs, you’ll develop detailed service drawings and specifications based on best practice to ensure the optimum solution is developed.

We work in a highly collaborative way, so strong team-working skills are vital, as is the ability to take the lead on technical issues with clients and project managers.

Our projects are all over the world, so the ability to work with and understand different national standards and codes is essential, as is the ability to work with both metric and imperial weights and measures.

There will be occasional international travel for project meetings and visits to some key manufacturers in Germany as part of your induction into the company.

You must have:

- A successful track record of working in building services
- Quantifiable experience of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) service design and drawing and/or a background designing within the swimming pool industry
- Excellent working knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite, AutoDESK AutoCAD, Photoshop, Adobe - Acrobat and SketchUp
- Experience of working in project management and work effectively in a team-working environment

Ideally you’ll also have:

- Experience of designing pools and of specifying pool filtration systems
- Experience of working in the spa/wellness sector
- The ability to undertake general CAD work
- An understanding of SolidWorks, Revit and Vectorworks
