We are looking for an innovative Design Standards Integration Manager to join the Store Development Team who is obsessed with creating world-class shopping experiences for our customers. This position will be part of an exciting, fast-moving business unit, where everyone on the team needs to be entrepreneurial, wear many hats and work effectively in a highly collaborative environment. This role is key to ensuring change initiatives and project requests meet their objectives, while helping drive changes within existing design standards and processes.
A day in the life
The ideal candidate will be a self-starter who can independently manage projects and processes. In this role you must be able to act as the primary source of contact but still have the confidence to ask for help. You should have a systems-driven mind yet be comfortable with experimentation, autonomy and ambiguity. Note this is not a designer role, but design/construction industry experience is a must.
