Junior Designer Role Module

I recommend the Jr. Designer role be the second role you bring on as you grow your business. This person is going to be instrumental in keeping you on high level, and billable tasks. The JR DESIGNER category will help you avoid a mistake I see all too often; not providing enough structure, procedures, training or ways for the Jr. Designer to realistically be proactive for you. This is hugely detrimental to the firm, for it leads to frustration on your part, poor performance, turn-over and a huge amount of wasted time, energy and money. For a small firm, it can easily set you back years.

Avoid all of this and use the tools in this category to provide structure and clarity for both you and your team member. To see the business materials in this category, go to the PRODUCTS drop down menu below and select this category.

    Junior Designer Review Self-Evaluation Worksheet

    Do you provide 90 day and annual reviews for your team? The performance evaluation can be a powerful tool in grooming and honing your team members in serving your interior design business well. Use the review tools provided in the VIP Membership to get this process right. This is especially important for the Junior Designer role, as they are generally very new to the industry and starting out in the profession.

    Did you know that employees modify their behavior based on their own assessment more so than the assessment of others? Use this knowledge to craft your review process into a powerful tool that increases performance, pride and morale.

    This involves a few steps. Give this Junior Designer Review Self-Evaluation Worksheet to your office Manager a week prior to your scheduled review. Have them turn it in to you 3 days prior to their review. Use their self-evaluation to assess their perception of their role, performance and mindset and use as a starting point in developing your own feedback.

    Use the JUNIOR DESIGNER REVIEW SUPERVISOR’S WORKSHEET to write down your own thoughts on their performance and perception of their morale. You will also want to download the REVIEW GUIDANCE sheet here in the membership to help you craft your feedback and run the review with confidence and optimal results.

    The REVIEW GUIDANCE sheet is the same for all team members, so you only need to download it once. The JUNIOR DESIGNER REVIEW SELF-EVALUATION WORKSHEET AND SUPERVISOR’S WORKSHEET are specific to the Office Manager role and address aspects of this role specifically.

    This is a Word document they can print out or fill in on the computer. If you’ve hired a great design assist, do them and your firm the service of conducting a meaningful performance evaluation and groom them into the ideal Junior Designer that you can eventually promote to Designer!

    Junior Designer Job Description

    The Junior Designer should be the second hire, after the Admin Assist or Office Manager. The Junior or Design Assist role is critical in getting your productive time/billable time up. The way in which you structure these first two roles is critical and it is where many designers fumble.

    Use this list of duties to craft your Junior Designer role for your firm and avoid the costly pitfalls associated with the “everyone does a little of everything” approach.

    I also strongly recommend using all the business tools in this category to help you reign in this role, as this is one area of the interior design business that tends to spin out of control. Simply download this Word document and tailor it as needed. make sure to reference the Office Manager and Expeditor roles as well so you make sure to structure your business effectively.
