Careers

At Rachel Usher Interior Design we don't view our work as simply a 9-5. To us it's a mission - a career where you are part of a diverse team who are passionate about each and every aspect of the interior design process; from concept, scheme and design to the not-so-glamorous phases of transforming a clients space. 

We don't see ourselves as just ‘an interior design studio’ - our team understands that our work within the practice is worth more than that. We create experiences and enhance lifestyles, thinking past the notion that design relates to aesthetics only.

We embrace individuality within a relaxed, collaborative work environment and our small, but perfectly formed team are dedicated, committed and loyal - not only to their individual role or duties but to each other too.
