We are looking for a an Art Director/Head of Creative type to join our small(ish) but mighty team. We are a creative agency that (unsurprisingly) designs, builds and writes digital stuff, brand stuff, campaign stuff, animation stuff, print stuff and all manner of other stuff. We work in pretty much any sector you can name, from education to justice, from DJ equipment to piracy (the sea-faring variety). We work with some companies that you’ll have heard of, and a whole bunch that you won’t have – but all of it combines to make a vibrant, interesting and stimulating workplace.

This is a super-important role in the company. Shocker, eh. You’ll lead a team of designers and conspire with developers, wordy folks and project managers to produce award-winning work.

What you’ll do:

• You'll work with our creative director to come up with great creative campaigns and digital
• You'll create and design beautiful, crafted visuals that fulfill the comms purpose of the job
• You'll run our team of designers to produce more awesomeness and to do it in more effective, collaborative and exciting ways
• You'll work with your accounts team to do pitches, lead creative reveal sessions and take briefings from clients
• In order to push our design skills forward you will be eager to keep up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies within the industry. You will likely do this by reading magazines, blogs and by attending conferences and courses.

What you’ll be like:

A highly motivated, creative and passionate person that is up for tackling demanding tasks and taking responsibility for your work, who is excited to learn new things and experiment with things you’ve never done before. You will be an excellent communicator who can explain to regular humans the ramifications and awesomenesses of the design choices you make, and also to have (and describe) great ideas about how to take concepts to the next level. You will use your problem solving skills and big picture thinking to create solutions and take problems away. Most importantly you will be a pretty decent human being who treats everyone with respect and dignity.

What you’ll probably have:

• A bunch of agency experience, preferably at a senior level (but happy to consider in-house too)
• A creative, interesting and thoughtful portfolio showing off your great typography, illustration skills and digital work
• A desire to lead our team to create outstanding work
• Software skills (Creative Suite, Sketch, InVision, all the good stuff)
• Ability/willingness/keen to shape our design landscape.

What you’ll get:

• Actual money (around £40k-£45k every year)
• 22 days holiday plus all bank holidays
• 3 duvet days a year
• Flexible working hours
• All the air, cake, BBQs and biscuits you can consume

Job Type: Full-time
Salary: £40,000.00 to £45,000.00 /year
