In a nutshell

Weíve thought of everything.

Now, what can you come up with?

Virgin Atlantic continually challenges the conventions of airline travel and nowhere more so than in our worldwide portfolio of airport terminals and Clubhouse lounges. Representing Virgin Atlanticís design requirements with range of internationally talented project designers and architects, youíll be responsible for the future of Virgin Atlanticís passenger facing designs within airport terminals.

Day to day

You must create the right space for our passengers by managing and designing alongside design or architectural consultancies. Youíll also be responsible for budgets, time, professional and contractor team management, legal and health & safety approval. These need to be achieved both on an individual project basis and across projects to ensure we make the best decisions. Youíll be responsible for the planning and co-ordination of global design and construction projects ensuring the end product allows service consistency meeting the overall project brief.

About you

To succeed, youíre going to need a degree in design, and worked in either an architectural or interior design company. Naturally, youíll have run projects from initial design concept through to completion, ensuring successful design and commercial decisions were made. You must have some experience of managing professional staff, and prior experience of working with airport authorities will be an advantage.

Create the best designs and in addition to your salary you can look forward to an excellent discretionary benefits package that includes, after a qualifying period, pension and private medical schemes plus arguably the best concessionary travel scheme in the industry.

The perks

Our pioneering spirit and passion keeps our brand vibrantly alive. That's why we give our people the rewards that they deserve. We have a whole host of benefits in place to help you enjoy life to the full, as well as a world of travel opportunities including up to seven flights a year to a wide range of fabulous Virgin Atlantic global destinations.
