Now weâ€™re looking to hire someone to work as the head of the Design Studio in Bangalore. Much like me, the person will have a large and blank canvas to work with – there is nothing setup in the Bangalore in terms of a design studio, so it will be the Creative Headâ€™s responsibility to create something out of nothing.
Hire people, meet with some of Indiaâ€™s top clientele and inform them that Comart now has a design studio, have an eye for good aesthetics and should have their hand on the pulse of the international design world. [ Much like what Iâ€™m doing now ] Its fun!
There is a lot of work involved because itâ€™s like setting up a new business – a new design studio. The advantage is that you will have the full support of the management in terms of infrastructure and contact with clients. The company is more like a family-owned, traditionally run organization – so itâ€™s not easy trying to get â€œfullâ€ co-operation from other â€œemployeesâ€ – but every organization has its challenges.
Personally, I know that once Iâ€™m outta here, I can start my own company without the usual teething troubles – to a large extent.
Some other facts to know:
There is a two-year agreement that you will be required to sign [ Iâ€™ve signed it too ].
Money – in terms of your fixed salary is peanuts – but there are other incentives [ call me up to know more ].
Its a VERY professionally satisfying job – while you donâ€™t need to have an MBA – you do need to be a good designer as well as a good manager.
I hate to say this but you do need to know how to speak in English – more languages would be an added bonus
This time around, I am going to leave the comments open – but please send me an e-mail if you or someone you know might be interested.
