Urban Splash are hiring! We need a middleweight designer to join the team at Head Office in Manchester.

This is a fantastic opportunity to play a vital part in the successful future of an innovative, award winning business.

About Urban Splash:

Urban Splash is an award-winning property development company with an enviable reputation for breathing new life into neglected and unused buildings and places.

Design and quality are the philosophy running through all our projects, from the initial spark of an idea, to the architecture, to how we market to our customers.

We’ve been at the leading edge of design and development for 25 years and are now looking for a marketing manager to help further cement our position as the most innovative and creative property developer in the UK.

We’re looking for someone creative, incisive, and organised.

Our ideal candidate will have a portfolio of work demonstrating meticulous craft and attention to detail, across a variety of disciplines including print, campaigns, signage and digital.

Your portfolio should demonstrate a bias towards simplicity and genuine usability in your work; the ability to interrogate a brief, to understand the problem, and to deliver simple and effective solutions.

You must be self-organised with great attention to detail.

You’ll need to work closely with our wider team to ensure work is completed to agreed deadlines and is of the highest standards. We’re looking for a genuine team player who will go above and beyond to support the goals of the wider organisation.

The ideal candidate should be able to demonstrate: 

• Experience of conceptualising and designing campaigns through from initial ideas to implementation across a variety of media (signage, print, digital, experiential)
• An ability to deliver innovative solutions within brand guidelines
• Experience of designing for print
• An ability to liaise directly with suppliers to create outstanding solutions on time and on budget
• A basic knowledge of design for digital, including online and social media ads
• An ability to be a team player, to lead where necessary and to muck in where needed
• Knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator)

How to Apply

We'd love a covering letter which gives examples of how your experience and work to date fit the skills listed above, as well as a digital portfolio and CV. Please email to recruitment @urbansplash.co.uk
