£34,000 - 12 month fixed-term contract, company pension + benefits
Ref: 11326
Description

This is an excellent opportunity to join directly a heritage organisation in the heart of London. Our client is looking for an experienced Lighting Manager to lead the delivery of all lighting components for our client’s exhibitions and displays, including public spaces.
