As a member of our new business development team your primary role will be to create new business and develop strategic relationships within the corporate and A&D communities, in addition to real estate and construction industries. The ideal candidate possesses entrepreneurial spirit and competitive drive, with a background in corporate interior design. We need someone who can open doors to new business and be successful in building long term client relationships.

Project co-ordinators work with the sales and design staff, as well as suppliers and clients, to co-ordinate and provide support on projects. Tasks include issuing proposals, change orders, purchase orders, service work orders, and reports, scheduling projects and liaising with vendors, clients and staff.

Our design / product specification specialists work with the sales and project co-ordinator staff, as well as suppliers and clients, to space plan using systems furniture and specification writing for quotations and orders. Tasks include understanding project / client needs, space planning, specification of product solutions, preparing product proposals, liaising with vendors, clients and staff.

Project managers are expected to manage a request from start to finish, identifying and verifying client needs, working within established guidelines, conduct client/site meetings, manage expectations, resolve project challenges, coordinate and work with the client/vendor/account team to meet deadlines and expectations within set deadlines and project parameters.

H&B supports the development of our industry. We will hire students whom are enrolled in a post-secondary interior design program with either 4 or 8 month internships, to learn and experience our industry. These students are often offered full time positions upon graduation. We also hire recent graduates, offering full time employment, which we train to specify systems furniture using AutoCAD and Project Matrix software.

Just as we strive to provide the highest level of service to our clients, we offer a competitive package to our team members to reward those who outperform. Based on performance in addition to a base salary, personal success is compensated via our profit sharing plan we call “Team Success”. Financial reviews occur once a year companywide, with adjustments made based on position, performance, and the economy.

In addition to group insurance, there are many fringe benefits such as summer hours (Friday afternoons off paid), paid sick days to protect your income in the case you are not able to work. Details of all the programs are reviewed during a job offer meeting, so that you are able to make an informed decision in joining our H&B family. If you like being active, our social committee plans regular events such as summer BBQ lunches, holiday themed contests, annual staff golf tournament and Christmas Party, as well as fund raising to support various charities we support.
