Salary: £20,000 to £32,000
Contract: Full Time
Applications Close: 11 May 2018
Job Listing Added: 28 March 2018

VEON is an exciting new chat and marketplace platform, designed to support our 250 Million mobile subscribers across the 12 emerging markets in which we operate. We are seeking to build out our creative team with the addition of an editorial-focused Motion Designer.

This role will suit an enthusiastic, versatile and focussed motion designer with a background in digital publishing, and a keen illustrative flair. Someone who can interpret creative direction and work with brand guidelines to continually develop compelling short-form editorial video content that surpris¬es and excites our users.

As partners of Getty Images, we have a virtually unlimited resource for stock video and stills, and so this will form the starting point for most projects. We also secure exclusive interviews and journalism which add to our exciting library of assets.

Given our exciting span of markets, we need someone able to tackle copy in a multitude of languages. We have internal translation and localisation teams, but you will need to be comfortable designing in alphabets other than Latin (Georgian, Cyrillic). Conversely, we also do a lot of visual-only storytelling, and so you will need to be able to convey compelling narrative with minimal or no text whatsoever.

We’re really hoping to find someone with technical chops, a strong sense of composition and design, and ability to tell a story through images. You’ll learn a lot while here and while a couple years of experience is great, substantial experience is not essential. You’ll be working closely with the Creative and Editorial Directors who will outline work and requirements as needed.

What you’ll do
• (80%) VEON short-form editorial video content (video and image)
• (20%) graphic design of logos additional bespoke assets
• Maintain VEON brand values throughout the editorial content proposition
• Spot design and mobile content trends and respond to them in a timely manner
• Drive local customer engagement via the content function on VEON
• Observe and respond to data insights surrounding content
What you’ll be
• Proven ability to cope with daily deadlines while working effectively with cross-functional teams locally and internationally
• Deeply passionate about the intersection between design, technology and content
• Flowing with creative ideas, with the confidence and ability to articulate and defend them
• Proven understanding of typography, layout, consistency and grid structures
• Digital savvy and knowledgeable about digital best practices, emphasis on video for mobile
• Have an excellent understanding of social media as a tool for brand communication
• Have an excellent understanding of snackable and shareable content
• Have a keen interest for visual culture; art, cinema, fashion, photography, music, graphic and product design
• Inquisitive, dynamic and adaptable
Key Qualifications
• Minimum 3 years’ experience in a design agency, production company or content environment (digital publisher preferred)
• Apple Mac literate with outstanding Adobe CC skills – specifically After Effects and Premiere Pro
• University educated, with a graphic / motion design or visual arts degree preferred
• Any strengths in our market languages is a huge bonus (Albania, Armenia, Bangladesh, Georgia, Italy, Pakistan, Russia, Ukraine)
