Designer (Digital) at Digitas Health

We need someone who wants to help. You want to help someone feel the weight of depression lifted. You want to help find a cure for the impossible disease. You want to help doctors make their budgets go further. You want to help patients live healthier, better lives. You want to help.

At Digitas Health LifeBrands London, helping is at the heart of what we do. We win awards for it too. Our growing creative team is looking for a new designer in our London office. As part of the global Digitas Health network and the wider Publicis Healthcare Communications Group, the agency has the support of a large organisation, which means we often pitch and work collaboratively with other agencies in the group and work for some enviable clients.

Enough about us, a little more about you. This special someone brings it creatively in the digital space. You’ll be part of a team that brings bold, strategic and highly creative work to life. You have an eye for amazing and the skills to make it all happen. You love typography, can’t stand widows and orphans, and turn every pixel into beautiful magic. This is a hands-on role that requires you to pick up projects and own them, from concept to completion. You’re also the guardian of quality. You make sure everything isn’t just on brand, but exceptional. The role is challenging, but we’re hoping you enjoy rising to meet it.

Bonus perk: We’re a nice bunch of people. No divas. No huge egos. Just a close-knit team who want to make great work. Teamwork and collaboration are at the heart of what we do. Sure, there will be some tight deadlines, fast-moving projects and clients who only demand the best from us – but if you’re the sort of person who thrives in this type of environment then we’d love to hear from you.
