Overview

JOB PURPOSE  

You will work in close conjunction with the brief owner and other members of the creative team from initial briefing stage, right through to final delivery. This includes, finalising artwork for print and digital media production that resonate with our clients and inspire and change the lives of their people. 

You'll need to be able to work in a high-pressure environment. From concept through to final delivery you will be creating the highest quality designed materials for integrated campaigns, social media and digital platforms with the highest levels of attention to detail and brand integrity. You’ll preferably have brand, advertising, marketing and digital experience with strong print and artworking skills, and be able to manage various projects at one time. Having a strong understanding and versatile approach to layout is key. Technical specs like character and paragraph styles, file handling and keyboard shortcuts are your second language. 

OUR CULTURE  

Every business knows that a passionate workforce is infinitely more productive than one packed with people counting down the seconds from nine to five. But how do you get employees genuinely fired up about work? Well, that’s where we come in. And we’re pretty damn good at it as well. But if you think that employee happiness is all bean bags and beer fridges, stop reading and move on. This role isn’t for you.

Employee Experience & Communication, we’re much more than emails and home mailers. We’re driving behaviour change at scale for some of the biggest household names on the planet. From high street fashion brands to global tech giants, we find creative ways to take each unique workforce and transform it into a force of nature.

Could you launch a mental health campaign for the world’s biggest sportswear brand? Do you have what it takes to change perceptions about energy companies? Have you got the persuasive power to convert millennials from frivolous consumers to long-term savers?

If you don’t think you can but know you can, then we want to hear from you. 

Do we need you to help us engage, motivate and inspire our clients’ people, as we have done for more than 20 years? No, no we don’t. We’re on the hunt for fresh perspectives and new ideas to revolutionise the way we reach over 10 million people every single year. Join our 150-strong multinational team of passionate employee communicators and start making a difference today.
