Bower Willis are an established local kitchen design company who have established a unique recipe for success; we may be kitchen designers by day, but we live and breathe ‘food’ and the joy of cooking. This knowledge extends through all elements of our kitchen design service, from understanding a client’s specific requirements for their kitchen and how it will be used, to combining the perfect balance of design, products and craftsmanship to create an environment that inspires and delights the imagination. At the high end of the market, there are no constraints on creativity. Being able to independently source the most luxurious materials allows us total design freedom within the kitchen industry; a quality that our discerning clients value greatly, returning back to us time and again as their property portfolio changes.

We’re looking for someone with a natural warmth and professionalism that will compliment our existing team, and are offering a competitive salary £20,000-£25,000 depending on experience, and a range of other benefits. If you think you may be that person, we’d love to receive your CV with an indication of current and future salary expectations and career aspirations.
