Currently operating in over 100 locations around the world, we also have major offices in London, NYC and Tel Aviv. We’re passionate about bringing compelling content to every corner of the world through our global community of writers, videographers and photographers. We won UK Website of the Year Award for Arts & Culture (2014) and were named one of Five Fast-Growing British Businesses To Watch by Forbes (2017).

We are looking for a passionate Animator to join our ever growing creative team. This is a unique opportunity to work alongside a seriously talented team of creators, and to help shape Culture Trip’s visual style and aesthetic as we grow our Animation & illustration team.

The ideal candidate will have a passion for storytelling through animation, with a good knowledge of the animation industry. We’re after someone with enthusiasm, eagerness to learn, a positive attitude and the capability to collaborate within a team structure.

Responsibilities:
- Work both independently & collaboratively to create beautiful, engaging animation

- Highly skilled in After Effects & Illustrator
- Ability to manage and prioritise projects effectively and to meet deadlines

Illustration and animation is a fresh endeavour for Culture Trip and, as such, our site and social channels don't currently represent the volume of creative content we are planning to populate them with.
