A great opportunity for an experienced Digital Designer to join a successful, well-respected design team for a company whose success has been nothing short of phenomenal and shows no sign of abating.

The role

They are innovators and pioneers in their field of expertise which covers sports, leisure, finance, lifestyle and leisure. Most of all, they've developed a culture that truly empowers people to develop and prosper. As one of the few in-house creative departments that consistently pushes the boundaries and produces an extremely high level of online and offline creative work, they function very much like an agency - it's a 'best of both worlds' scenario for an innovative Digital Designer who wants to be part of an incredible business.

Reporting to the Lead Designer, every day will be different as you will be working across a range of sectors. You will be taking a project from initial brief through to completion, brainstorming and creating concepts and wireframes, ultimately through to finished designs which are ready for development and production. As an experienced Digital Designer, you'll have an extensive digital portfolio demonstrating a flair for working across various platforms. As the only Digital Designer, you will work closely with marketing, digital and development teams to produce exciting creative work for a broad range of digital marketing campaigns. Although the majority will be digital work, there may be some offline projects too, so an understanding of print is desirable. You'll need to be able to translate requirements quickly into eye-catching, user-centric designs which can convert prospects into customers.

What we're looking for

Given the creative work this in-house company produces, an agency background would be beneficial as it is very fast paced. You will have had ideally had a minimum of 4 years' experience in a similar role and will have the ability to translate briefs into high-quality pieces for mobile, tablet, and desktop. Experience in an e-commerce environment would be great too, as we would like to see examples of sales-focused websites that work well across all digital channels. The usual design software packages are a must, you'll need to know Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign like the back of your hand! You'll also need to be au-fait with wireframing and prototyping tools such as Sketch, Invision, Zeplin, etc., and need to have a good understanding of cross-browser compatibility issues and best practices to support SEO and accessibility. You need to be brand and digital savvy, with the ability to pull all parts of a campaign together, and the quality of your work not only needs to be visually sublime but must also be able to reach and resonate with the target audience.

As a person, you must be a confident communicator and presenter, and you'll be the one to influence stakeholders. You'll need to really believe in your ideas and designs, and know that your creations are the best for the business and its customers. Overall, you'll need to have a passion for the design world, an awareness of current trends, and a desire to grow and refine your skills.

What's on offer?

On top of a salary of between £30,000 - £35,000, you'll be joining a company that is forward-thinking and isn't afraid to stand out from the crowd and its competitors. The culture is second to none, and, with a great staff retention record they offer ample room for both career progression and personal growth. Apply now or contact Samantha on 0161 425 7352 for further information.
